“He puts no fear in my heart” Anthony Edwards savage insult of Rudy Gobert goes viral after insane trade to Timberwolves 

The 30-year-old three-time All-Star was pretty mature when responding to the commentary as well, so he has probably forgiven the youngster by now.

Former DPOY Rudy Gobert has registered himself in the headlines after his massive trade from Utah Jazz to Minnesota Timberwolves in some style. However, on the same note, fans cannot help but imagine the environment in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ locker room after the Frenchman will be sharing the same area with Anthony Edwards, a rookie who went onto insult him in a savage manner.

Back in December 2021, Anthony Edwards famously insulted Rudy Gobert with, “He puts no fear in my heart,” comment. The NBA Twitterverse poked fun at Anthony Edwards as NBA fans dug up an old video of the athletic guard savagely insulting the defensive guru.

Edwards had some rather bold comments about Gobert after the Timberwolves lost to the Jazz at the time. He highlighted that he doesn’t consider the Frenchman the best rim protector in the NBA. “Anytime I go against [Kristaps] Porzingis, I don’t get no layups. I don’t get why we couldn’t finish on Rudy Gobert. He don’t put no fear in my heart. I don’t know why,” Edwards said at the time. 

Edwards could also just say he was simply talking trash at the time and trying to get into the head of Gobert. The 30-year-old three-time All-Star was pretty mature when responding to the commentary as well, so he has probably forgiven the youngster by now. That being said, it will be interesting to see how Timberwolves play out now, with two of the most elite big men in their team. Given that Gobert is an insane protector of the rim, the likes of Karl Anthony Towns and Anthony Towns can focus on just end of the court. 

Will we witness Minnesota Timberwolves registering their greatest ever season in the 2022-23 campaign? Surely, with Gobert coming into their side, they have all the necessary weapons to do so. What action awaits further in the off season? Remains to be seen.
