Victor Wembanyama Shines in NBA Debut: Impressive Stats and Promising Potential

Victor Wembanyama freaks out the stats. Authors of successful debuts in the NBA despite the disappointing results in San Antonio, the French interior meets the very high expectations placed on him. Friday, the 20-year-old Frenchman disgusted the Hornets in less than 20 minutes on the floor. Great architect of the Spurs’ great victory 135-99, the second in a row, a first since the beginning of November, “Wemby” once again displayed an impeccable stats sheet: 26 points, 11 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 blocks.

The click with the Blues at the U16 European Championship

In this last sector, Wembanyma already has no equivalent in the NBA this season. With an average of 3.1 blocks per match, the Habs, helped by his 2.24m, are quite simply the best blocker in the American League ahead of Milwaukee pivot Brook Lopez (2.9). “I remember passing a milestone at 15, before the U16 European Championship with the French team,” he explained after the meeting. “That’s when I realized the importance of being able to counter but not just your own player. It’s also about being able to help your teammates, having the power to sometimes save certain situations.”

Against Charlotte, we also saw Wembanyama make counterattacks and keep possession of the ball. Great art: “It’s something that’s still quite new (keeping the ball after a block). It’s a year old. Maybe less. It’s really hard to do. It’s a bonus. It’s really helpful.” San Antonio will have to do Saturday without its prodigy who announced his absence against Chicago, he who is rested by Gregg Popovich during the back-to-back (two games in two days). The Spurs are still last in the Western Conference despite their slight improvement.
