(Photo by Ronald Cortes/Getty Images)   Now that Victor Wembanyama’s rookie season is in the books, the San Antonio Spurs need to start building a legitimate team around him. He has definitely met the massive hype surrounding him, but this season, he had a very weak team surrounding him, and the Spurs cannot simply take their time. Atlanta Hawks star guard Trae Young has been rumored to be on the trade block, and while some have linked him to San Antonio, they reportedly don’t see him as a good fit with Wembanyama, per NBACentral via Kurt Helin. The Spurs reportedly don’t see Trae Young ..read more

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)   Defense seems to be a lost art in today’s NBA. More than that, two-way players are hard to come across, let alone two-way players who can make an impact right away. More often than not, good offensive players need a couple of years before being good on defense, and defensive-oriented players are usually a non-factor on offense for a while. That’s not the case with Victor Wembanyama. Besides his handles, playmaking, and shooting, he also proved to be an NBA-ready defender right out of the gate. That’s why it’s not much of a surprise to see him b ..read more

(Photo by Paras Griffin/Getty Images for Revolt)   Victor Wembanyama is a generational and unique talent, and it shouldn’t take long before he wins multiple awards. He’s currently the clear-cut favorite to win Rookie of the Year, but it might not be the only trophy he takes home this season. Despite his team’s subpar record and evident struggles, he’s currently one of the frontrunners for Defensive Player of the Year. That’s why, in the latest edition of First Things First, FOX analyst Chris Broussard explained why he should win the award. Wemby is @Chris_Broussard's 2023-24 NBA DPOY He ..read more

(Photo by Ian Maule/Getty Images)   Victor Wembanyama’s rookie season in the NBA is now over, and he has lived up to all of the massive hype that has surrounded him for at least the past 18 months. He averaged 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and a league-high 3.6 blocks in 29.7 minutes per game, and there’s no telling how much better he’ll be in just a couple more years when he’ll still be several seasons away from entering his prime. Nike has released a logo for Wembanyama’s merch with the company, and per “4thand1show” on Twitter, former NFL MVP quarterback Cam Newton likes it ..read more

(Photo by Ron Jenkins/Getty Images)   Victor Wembanyama of the San Antonio Spurs just finished his first season in the NBA and it was a truly historic one. As noted by StatMuse, Wembanyama’s rookie season featured him averaging 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 4 blocks per game. That’s the most blocks by a rookie in the 21st century and makes him the first rookie with 300+ blocks and steals since Shaquille O’Neal. This is the first season with 250+ blocks and 100+ three-pointers. If that wasn’t impressive enough, Wembanyama also earned the first 5×5 by a rookie in more than 20 seasons. In othe ..read more

Although the Spurs failed to live up to expectations this year with Wembanyama in the fold, the French phenom didn’t disappoint as he played his part and showed why he’s one of the most promising young players since the arrival of LeBron James in 2003. Wembanyama will almost certainly run away with the NBA Rookie of the Year award ..read more

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)   The San Antonio Spurs found a generational building block. Victor Wembanyama has proven to be as good as scouts said, and it didn’t take long before he made an impact. His offense looks ahead of schedule, especially his shooting stroke from beyond the arc, but his defense is already elite. He’s a strong candidate for both Rookie of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, and he’s leading the league in both blocks per game and defensive rating. As a matter of fact, Wembanyama has been so dominant as a rim protector that he’s actually averaged ..read more

(Photo by Ronald Cortes/Getty Images)   The San Antonio Spurs will finish the 2023-24 NBA season with one of the worst records in the league, but the franchise is in excellent shape moving forward because of the rapid development of Victor Wembanyama. Wembanyama somehow managed to exceed expectations after all the hype and attention he got the previous offseason before he was selected No. 1 overall in the 2023 NBA Draft. The France native had a relatively underwhelming start in the Las Vegas Summer League which dulled some of the excitement, but he quickly shut down any sort of doubt once ..read more
