NBA – After his viral streak, a player’s confession about Wembanyama: “My life…
Even if the defeat is at the end, Victor Wembanyama delivered a great performance this Sunday evening against the Nuggets, unprecedented in history. An attempt by the Frenchman in the third quarter also created a buzz, with a frightened opponent.
This is what he told journalists.
Unplayable for a few games, Victor Wembanyama continues to feel more and more comfortable on the NBA floor. His performance, never seen before in history, against the Nuggets is there to confirm it.
We were still treated to numerous highlights for the Frenchman, while his first spectacular poster wasn’t necessarily very far away either.
The crazy action attempted by Wembanyama
For that we have to come back towards the end of the third quarter, the moment chosen by Wemby to rush towards the circle at full speed.
He tries to finish strong on Julian Strawther, who ends up making a mistake and above all preventing him from taking a very nasty poster.
Victor also ended up on the ground after this impressive contact, before getting up.
Julian Strawther on what’s going through his mind when Victor Wembanyama is trying to dunk on him:
"I don’t think he’s going to dunk it from that far. He went up for the dunk and I was like, ‘Oh, he’s going to try to dunk it from that far.’ My life flashed before my eyes." pic.twitter.com/lvoUlV8bxA

At a press conference, Strawther returned to this sequence. And he is very happy that the Frenchman did not succeed in his attempt:
Strawther: “I didn’t think he was going to attempt the dunk from that far.
He started trying to dunk and I was like, “Oh, he’s going to try to dunk from so far.” My life flashed before my eyes.
Wemby tried and without the mistake, he probably would have made this poster as a bonus.
Fortunately for the Nuggets player he did not manage to finish in the circle.
Strawther nevertheless remained very classy after this sequence, with some compliments for Wembanyama in front of the journalists. Like Nikola Jokic, the Nuggets guard is confident:
More Strawther on Wemby: "I mean, he’s able to affect the game in so many different ways with his length, just being in the passing
lanes and contesting shots. Yeah, he’s special."

Strawther on Wemby:
“He’s able to impact the game in so many different ways with his size, getting in the way of passing lanes and contesting shots. Yeah, he’s special.
Victor Wembanyama was not far from spectacular action against the Nuggets, but Julian Strawther decided otherwise.
The rear should obviously have a big memory of this interaction…
