Anthony Edwards' viral postgame remark to Charles Barkley has become the new tourism slogan in Minnesota.

With the Timberwolves set to face off against the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference finals, Explore Minnesota has started featuring Edwards' "Bring ya ass" message on its website and social media.

Edwards made the now-infamous remark while chatting with Barkley and the rest of TNT's "Inside the NBA" crew following the Timberwolves' Game 7 win over the defending champion Denver Nuggets. Barkley pointed out that he hadn't been to Minnesota in 20 years, prompting Edwards to say, "Bring ya ass."

The Timberwolves last reached the Western Conference finals in 2004 where they lost in six games to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Game 1 of the Timberwolves-Mavericks series will take place Wednesday night in Minnesota.
