Anthony Edwards' stellar performance and 50 cent sneaker gift sparks buzz
Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards stole the show with a game-high 32 points, six rebounds and 4-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc in a 111-90 win over the Houston Rockets. However, his post-game actions added even more excitement to the game.

After the game, Edwards met rapper 50 Cent outside the Timberwolves locker room at the Target Centre, and in a video documenting the moment, Edwards is seen taking off his signature sneakers, the AE 1 "Velocity Blue," and handing them over to an excited 50 Cent. The rapper exclaims, "Oh my God!" upon receiving the yet-to-be-released sneakers. .

In a funny interaction with the audience, 50 Cent made it clear that he considers himself the sole recipient of Edwards' trainers, saying, "You think you're important, but you ain't no mama ******* body," hinting that he doesn't want anyone else to get the prized trainers.

Edwards showed off his iconic "Velocity Blue" trainers for the second time, which originally debuted against the Orlando Magic. Fans took to Twitter to share their reactions to Edwards' unique sneaker collection.
