Zion Williamson can undoubtedly gain valuable lessons from his NBA peer, Anthony Edwards, in order to steer clear of online scandals.

Edwards, who recently secured a lucrative contract extension potentially worth $260 million over five seasons, captivated attention with a heartfelt social media post, emphasizing his unwavering commitment to his girlfriend.

In an Instagram video, Edwards proudly declared, "She the only one," pointing to his girlfriend and humorously including his dog in the mix. The Minnesota Timberwolves player also made it abundantly clear that he would not entertain advances from other women following his monumental deal.

Such loyalty and maturity exhibited by Edwards present an opportunity for Williamson to learn and grow. Conversely, Williamson, a prominent figure in the New Orleans Pelicans, has found himself caught up in a series of off-court incidents that have attracted gossip headlines, most notably involving a sex scandal.

The latest development reveals a third woman claiming involvement with the 22-year-old forward, who is also expecting a child with his girlfriend. These off-court distractions have unfortunately overshadowed Williamson's NBA accomplishments.

In contrast, Edwards has been steadily establishing himself as a key player within his team, having already completed three seasons in the league. In 2023, Edwards achieved a career-high average of 24.6 points per game, showcasing his scoring versatility with shooting percentages of 45.9 percent from the field and 36.9 percent from beyond the arc.

Additionally, he exhibited growth in other areas of the game, exemplified by solid rebounding skills, averaging 5.2 rebounds per game, and displaying court vision with 4.4 assists per game. Coupled with his drama-free personal life and dedication to the local Minnesota community, Anthony Edwards is rapidly emerging as a role model worth seeking advice from, particularly for young NBA players like Zion Williamson.

By observing Edwards' achievements both on and off the court, Williamson can glean valuable insights that may assist him in navigating potential pitfalls and controversies. Ultimately, learning from Edwards' example could help Williamson maintain a positive public image while focusing on his basketball career.
