Big Baby Davis taking some shots.
Count former NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis as someone who believes he would have no trouble facing off against San Antonio Spurs’ No.1 draft pick Victor Wembanyama.
Davis, like many other current and former players, confidently expresses his belief that he could handle Wembanyama’s body, referring to him as having a “tomato chest” and looking like “a little baby Bambi” in his summer league debut.
Watch Big Baby Davis go in below:
Glen “Big Baby” Davis on playing Victor Wembanyama: “The length I probably would have struggled with, but the body? Tomato chest. They soft. That boy looked like a little baby Bambi out there the other night, a little baby giraffe… I don’t think he could handle all this pain.” pic.twitter.com/3fh6JqLlvJ

While attacking Wembanyama’s physique may provide some initial success, it is not a sustainable tactic.
Davis also acknowledges that he would have struggled with Wembanyama’s length, as the French phenom stands at 6 feet 9 with an 8-foot wingspan.
Over time, as Wembanyama develops his understanding of angles and gains core strength, he will become an even more formidable opponent.
The NBA is constantly evolving, and Wembanyama’s unique combination of height and skill makes him a fascinating prospect. Only time will tell how far he can go in the league.
