Just last season, the Minnesota Timberwolves barely made it to the playoffs.

Despite their blockbuster trade for Rudy Gobert, they failed to mesh and be at their best in their first year together.

They’ve been much better this season, with Anthony Edwards making the most of his experience with Team USA to take a big leap forward.

The Timberwolves flirted with the No. 1 seed for most of the season, but they ended up falling short of it when they were pretty close to the finish line.

That’s why, following their loss to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, NBA analyst Skip Bayless stated he just doesn’t trust them to get the job done in the postseason.

Talking on “Undisputed,” he argued that the Timberwolves are still missing something, and not even getting Karl-Anthony Towns back will be enough for them to get over the hump.

He admits that Edwards has shown flashes of greatness, but he believes he has yet to take over and take that leap forward.

Truth be told, Edwards has been one of the best players in the league this season, and he proved that he could put this team on his shoulders by taking one game from the Nuggets in the playoffs last season.

Perhaps he’s going to add an extra gear to his game and be even more dominant in the postseason.

He’s the undisputed leader and best player on this team, and him stepping up and taking his game to another level might be the Timberwolves’ only chance in the playoffs.
