Victor Wembanyama‘s Las Vegas Summer season League debut occurred on Friday evening, because the No. 1 overall pick within the 2023 NBA Draft performed his first sport in a San Antonio Spurs uniform. On the opposite facet of the court docket was Brandon Miller and the Charlotte Hornets, because the league placed on a matchup between the top-2 picks final month to kick off Summer season League.
Wembanyama definitely flashed the expertise that made him a generational prospect in the course of the sport, however like every nice shot blocker, he ended up on the opposite facet of a spotlight. Kai Jones went up and grabbed a lob over high of Wembanyama and went to throw down. Sadly for him, he was a bit too far-off from the rim to really dunk, however sadly for Wembanyama, Jones is a ridiculous athlete who was simply in a position to throw it by means of the rim from a number of toes away.
Once more, Wembanyama altered an entire lot of photographs in the course of the sport, so it’s not like he was getting dominated on the rim all evening. That is simply an particularly nasty reminder of the way it’s unimaginable to cease all the things on the rim, even when you’re 7’4 with an 8-foot wingspan who alter photographs on the rim with relative ease.
