Anthony Edwards includes himself in his All-Time Starting five

Anthony Edwards is one of the most exciting young players in the NBA right now. He is an electric finisher at the rim, making him a potential highlight reel anytime he takes the court. He’s also just 20 years old, coming off a season where he averaged 21.3 points per game. As he continues to improve the other areas of his game, Edwards could become one of the top players in the NBA very soon.

Anthony Edwards' All-Time Starting five 

To go along with his talent on the court, Edwards is also one of the most charismatic players in the league when he’s off it. You can always count on him for a good quote in interviews, and his recent All-Time Starting five list proves the point.

When asked for his All-Time Starting five by House Of Highlights, Edwards quickly rattled off Allen Iverson, LeBron James, Shaquille O’Neal, and Kevin Durant. Who gets the last spot in that lineup? That would be Edwards himself, of course.

Ant's All-Time Starting five is undoubtedly interesting

Naming your All-Time Starting five is certainly a challenging task because one way or another, you are going to leave off a big name and spark a riot from a particular fanbase. There’s no right or wrong answer to the question, but most fans are convinced that their lineup is right while everyone else’s is wrong.

Edwards doesn’t have the most conventional lineup here, but chances are it would get the job done on the court. There are elite scorers all over the court here, even with the relatively unproven Edwards himself. And with James and Durant still cementing their legacies today, chances are this lineup will get better over time.

Of course, Edwards decided to include himself, which is unsurprising if you have seen some of his other interviews. That led to the notable omission of Michael Jordan, who is largely considered the league’s best player of all time. But he and Edwards play the same position, so Edwards made the sensical choice to send Jordan to the bench so that he could get some starting minutes.

This list should obviously be taken with a grain of salt, but Edwards still has a pretty good starting five here. Iverson is arguably the game’s greatest ball-handler, James and Durant are elite scorers who can impact the game in many different ways, and Shaq helped revolutionize what it meant to be a big man in the NBA. If Edwards can put together the type of career he thinks he’s capable of, this could be a legit All-Time lineup in the future.
