Wemby is planning on going old school.
Victor Wembanyama is being compared to the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and is determined to perfect the skyhook move.
In a recent interview, the rising star from the San Antonio Spurs shared his plans to incorporate the famous shot into his offensive arsenal for his rookie season.
Wembanyama expressed his hope that the skyhook will become a formidable weapon for him in the future.

In today’s NBA, the skyhook has become a rarity, with only a few seven-footers occasionally attempting it.
The game has shifted away from traditional low-post, back-to-the-basket plays, resulting in Abdul-Jabbar’s signature move being overshadowed.
However, with his towering height of 7 feet 5 inches, Wembanyama could be the one to bring the skyhook back into the spotlight.
He possesses an old-school NBA mentality and could ignite a revival of this near unstoppable shot, which is widely regarded as the most effective in the sport’s history.
Can’t wait to see his first Sky Hook!
