Zion Williamson et Victor Wembanyama

Despite the Spurs’ big defeat against the Pelicans, Victor Wembanyama made a good impression against Zion Williamson’s teammates. At a press conference, the latter spoke about the Frenchman’s talent.

Hard return to reality for the Spurs. Gregg Popovich’s men hoped to continue after their success against the Lakers on Friday, but they ended up suffering a rout against New Orleans: 146-110 after 48 minutes of play.

CJ McCollum provided the essentials with his 29 points, while that Brandon Ingram finished with 26 units, 4 assists and 3 rebounds. Zion Williamson was a little more discreet.

Determined to silence the critics, Zion is still at 15 points and 8 rebounds in 12 shooting attempts. An effective match for the interior, which will especially remember the great victory over the Spurs. It must be said that opposite, Victor Wembanyama’s 17 points, 13 rebounds and 4 blocks were not enough to make the difference.

An evening that we imagine would be relatively frustrating for the Texan team.

Zion Williamson speaks out on Wembanyama

Despite this score, Wembanyama made the Pelicans dizzy, who did not find any real solutions to prevent him from scoring. At a press conference, even Zion paid tribute to the Frenchman’s match.

Zion Williamson on Victor Wembanyama:

“He’s a threat everywhere on the floor. He will become a nightmare for the opponent because he is capable of scoring whenever he wants. I think the more he plays in an NBA style offense, the better he’ll get at it. His mere presence is enough to affect many shots. He has long arms, he is tall, so his presence can allow him to have an impact on the attack on the other side of the floor.”

Quite nice for Wembanyama, who has a big impact on the opposing attack with his simple presence. It’s indeed difficult to score against a 2m24 player who is so mobile and ready to do anything to prevent you from shining.

Brandon Ingram also shared a comment about Wemby:

Brandon Ingram on Victor Wembanyama: “It’s crazy. He’s so big, long, he can do amazing things, grab rebounds or even deflect (shots). When you think you’re open, you’re not. He’s got talent for sure, and when he figures out how to put it all together, he’s going to be a problem.”

Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram were shocked by Victor Wembanyama’s talent. A problem to manage for the Pelicans, even if the franchise comes away with the victory. The future of the Frenchman looks bright in any case.
