NBA Analyst Makes Huge Claim About Minnesota Timberwolves Star

The NBA has been lucky enough to be a league filled with stars throughout history from Larry Bird and Magic Johnson to Michael Jordan all the way to Steph Curry and LeBron James, and now, there's a new generation of stars emerging.

According to former NBA player turned analyst Kendrick Perkins, there's one that stands above the rest and will be the future face of the NBA, and that's young Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Anthony Edwards.

After another scintillating performance for Team USA, Perkins claimed he will be the next face of the NBA, and with his likeable personality combined with strong performances on the court (25, 6 & 4 in his third NBA season), there could be something to this statement, despite the plethora of young stars around the NBA right now.
