Victor Wembanyama Expresses Desire to Stay with Spurs for the Long Haul

NBA – After 24 hours of an incredible media whirlwind, Victor Wembanyama appeared before the press to formalize his arrival at Spurs.

All that was missing was Tony Parker! Arrived Friday afternoon in San Antonio, Victor Wembanyama had dinner the same evening with Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan, David Robinson, Manu Ginobili and Sean Elliott! A meal he won’t soon forget.

“It was without doubt one of the best dinners of my life. In about two hours, I learned more about the NBA than in my entire life before.” he blurted out. “It’s so reassuring to see that these people, who are so important to San Antonio and to this franchise, are so kind and so generous. In a really sincere way, they want to share their experience with me. They really want to take care of me. It’s so comfortable to be in such a position. »

“My will would be to stay in the same franchise for a long time”

“Wemby” thus learned that Tim Duncan had experienced the same thing, the day after his Draft, and there is a real transmission at the Spurs. “Tim Duncan told me he found himself in the same situation, with David Robinson and Sean Elliott. He followed their path, and he was in good hands. »

This identity and this culture suit him perfectly, and he would see himself, like Robinson, Duncan or Ginobili, spending his entire career in San Antonio. At least, stay there for a long time. “My first hours here made me want to live in this city for a long time. Loyalty is something that is important to me. I don’t know what the future will be like, but my wish would be to stay in the same franchise for a long time. »
