Kevin Durant Praises Victor Wembanyama’s Talent and Looks Ahead to Paris 2024 Olympics

Victor Wembanyama still impresses as much. A few days after All-Star Weekend, Wemby is still on a few minds. Notably that of Phoenix Suns star Kevin Durant who praises the talent of the French giant in an interview.

In the show Cover Story from the media Boardroom, which he founded, Kevin Durant was asked about the player who would dominate the NBA in 10 years. His response was in two words: “Victor Wembanyama”. A few months after his arrival on the floors of the prestigious American league, the number 1 in the Draft won over all observers. “It’s crazy how dominant he’s going to be.” Fortunately, I’m at the end,” declared the 35-year-old Suns All-Star a few days ago at a press conference.

« Il y aura LeBron, moi, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving… »

Kevin Durant also took advantage of the moment to discuss the Paris 2024 Olympic Games with Team USA. “I’m excited to get that connection back with the guys. It’s unrivaled. Having All-Stars who don’t play together just for a weekend, but a whole summer, he relishes. You’re pretty much on tour with some of the best players in history. 1 on 1 before and after training, there is no better,” he says with the hope of adding a fourth gold medal to his list after 2012, 2016 and 2020.

A list of 41 names was announced by Team USA in January. A five-star cast for the pre-selection with LeBron James, Stephen Curry and other legends of the orange ball. “There will be LeBron James, me, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, Paul George, and young people like Anthony Edwards, Devin Booker, Jayson Tatum, details the double MVP of the finals. I like to observe others, their routine, what makes them who they are. And I want us to show how dominant we are, to win by 40, 50 points,” he hopes before, perhaps, crossing paths with the Blues and Victor Wembanyama.
