The new guy had a lot to learn. Then and now.
26 summers ago, Tim Duncan got schooled by Jermaine O’Neal and Greg Ostertag.
This week, Victor Wembanyama had his NBA eyes opened by Kai Jones and … Britney Spears?

Victor Wembanyama was far from dejected, and answered questions with his usual thoughtfulness, but that was, let’s say, the least delightful press conference he’s given this summer.
I suspect he wanted to put on a show much more than he let on. Which is totally natural. – 12:58 AM

Awards votes are weird. Voters get bored and get stuff wrong. Injuries might muck this up. Chet and Mobley and Bam are all gonna fight for some hardware in the near future.
But holy shit, there is a chance Victor Wembanyama wins like nine Defensive Player of the Year awards. – 9:50 PM

The NBA is in a great spot when the arena is full for a summer league game. Just an awesome atmosphere in Vegas for Victor Wembanyama’s first NBA action.
How about his handles?! – 9:46 PM
Sam Smith @SamSmithHoops
At Thomas & Mack Center for Victor Wembanyama debut. Felt maybe the same anticipation as the French must have felt when Charlemagne emerged in 768. Kind of looks like a fluid Shawn Bradley, which isn’t bad. Holy NBA emperor? Not quite yet. – 9:44 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Victor Wembanyama’s first quarter here in Las Vegas reminds me of Ante Zizic’s summer league debut. Pretty clear immediately that Wembanyama is gassed after playing a long season overseas and just doesn’t have what it takes to thrive in the NBA game. – 9:43 PM

More on this storyline

“I think when he comes in to the league, I think he’ll be more of a defender. If you watch him defensively, he ruins games. He reminds me a little bit of a bigger Bill Russell, with a big reach, coming from everywhere–blindsides. Any offensive player is gonna have to be really cautious about where he is because he’s gonna mess up some offenses, that’s for sure.” -via Clutch Points / July 8, 2023
Tom Orsborn: Wembanyama says during chat with Kareem that he expects more rocky games ahead as he learns Spurs system: “I’m like a kid right now – I am a kid. I’m just ready to learn.” -via Twitter @tom_orsborn / July 8, 2023
