There was no suspense regarding the NBA rookie of the year award this season. Chet Holmgren created an illusion in the first weeks of competition, before Victor Wembanyama picked up the pace, to the point of playing like an All-Star.

Quite impressive to see, especially for a simple 20-year-old rookie, whose career is only just beginning across the Atlantic.

He also confirmed it again in front of journalists this Saturday: he wants to win and if possible quickly.

Victor Wembanyama : “It was a big surprise, something I didn’t expect. Because seeing these guys, taking the time to encourage me, to congratulate me, it means a lot to me.

Especially since I didn’t think that some people were going to take the time to do that. I mean, how busy is LeBron? »

“It inspires me. In the future, once I’m a veteran, I hope I can encourage young people like that. »
