Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards made a promise to Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons on Tuesday following his team’s series-clinching win over the Dallas Mavericks.

The Timberwolves avoided the series sweep with a 105-100 victory in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals to bring the series back to Minnesota.

After the contest, Edwards was seen talking to Parsons in one of the hallways at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Edwards was heard guaranteeing that he would see Parsons again in Dallas for Game 6.

During his post-match press conference, Edwards was asked about his conversation with Parsons.

“What am I supposed to say?” Am I supposed to say we’re going to lose game five? No, I would never say that. Micah Parsons, you know, he was wearing the AE1s and I told him he was wearing a size 14. I’ll bring him some nice shoes for Game 6. That’s what I told him,” Edwards said.





The AE1s are Edwards’ first signature shoe with Adidas. Parsons was seen on the court wearing a Luka Doncic Mavericks jersey while also wearing Edwards’ sneakers.

Edwards made a similar guarantee to a guard in the Denver Nuggets locker room during the Western Conference semifinals. The Timberwolves star then kept his promise.

Edwards had team highs across the board with 29 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists in Game 4.
