Wembanyama debuted in the NBA and left a curious phrase: “I didn’t know what I was doing on the court”

After causing a sensation in the public with his irruption in the NBA, the French basketball player Victor Wembanyama -chosen number 1 in the draft this season- debuted in the San Antonio Spurs the Summer League against Charlotte and left an exciting performance. The NBA has a jewel in the rough to exploit this season in the French Wembanyama, who beyond his characteristic physical features -he measures 2.26 meters tall-, stands out for a surprising dribble and a good ability to handle the ball. At the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, with 19,000 seats sold out to see the young star, in just over a minute he showed his qualities with a block, an assist, a double and a free. Finally, the 19-year-old Frenchman was on the court for 27 minutes and generated nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and five blocks, in a 76-68 triumph. “It was a special moment to wear this jersey for the first time. It’s a great honour and I’m very happy to have won,” he said afterwards. Then, Wembanyama left a curious phrase regarding the role he played on the court. “Honestly, I didn’t really know what I was doing on the court tonight. But I’m trying to learn for the next games and the important thing is to be ready for the season.”
