Minnesota Timberwolves rookie, Anthony Edwards, is in the hot seat after a pro-Madden player exposed him for owing around 22K in unpaid Madden bets. Pro Madden player and YouTuber AB Got Game is putting the star forward on blast via Twitter for making a series of bets but not following through with the payment.
A Series of Unpaid Debts
AB Got Game took to Twitter on June 9 to blast Edwards. His evidence was a series of messages from Instagram, and text messages. He said, “NBA rookie, Anthony Edwards, is down bad…dude owes me 22K and blocked me on everything. Please make this go viral. This is some real scumbag shit. (Also I have audio/video recording of EVERYTHING)”
He continued, “Bro this isn’t about me getting the money. I’m tryna save y’all from playing this millionaire pro athlete for money and losing and paying him, even though he prob won’t pay you if he loses.” He included a video of them playing claiming it is “how it all started”.
Since the posting, many Twitter uses have interacted with claim sharing it and commenting under it. Responses range from calls to Edwards to pay up and telling AB to let it go.
A Rising Star
However, Edwards has yet to comment on the allegation.
Edwards is coming off an impressive rookie season. He averaged 19.3 Pts, 4.7 Reb, and 2.9 Ast and won three straight Rookie of the month awards. On March 18, Edwards became the third-youngest rookie (behind Lebron James and Kevin Durant) to have 40+ points after a 42 point outing against the Phoenix Suns. In December of 2020, Edwards signed a sponsorship deal with Adidas joining many other talented players under the Adidas umbrella.
Whether Anthony Edwards intends to pay up or not is unknown. Undoubtedly, this is not a great look for the Rookie of the Year candidate.
