Victor Wembanyama is already proving he’s a beast.
Victor Wembanyama is taking a different approach from the rest of the NBA.
In a recent meeting with the San Antonio Spurs, the 19-year-old center expressed his desire to play all 82 games in the upcoming season, according to a report by LJ Ellis.
According to a source associated with Metropolitans 92, Wembanyama’s French team, the 7-foot-5 center recently had a meeting with the Spurs to discuss his vision for how he wants his first year in the NBA to play out. The most notable request from Wembanyama was that he wants to play in every possible game. The source told me the Spurs responded by telling Wembanyama that the franchise agrees with his vision and will do everything they can to make that happen.
Wembanyama, who didn’t miss a single game for his French team Metropolitans 92 last season, is proud of his record and the Spurs agree with his vision, promising to do everything in their power to make it happen.
In a league where load management is prevalent, Wembanyama’s goal may be an unusual one, and it may not be wise for a player listed at 7-foot-5 and 237 pounds to go all-out without proper preparation.
However, with the right mentorship and a winning mindset, he could achieve his ambitious goal.
