Just as Trae Young and Luka Doncic will always be linked and compared, Chet Holmgren and Victor Wembanyama could receive the same treatment.

 Moreover, the inside of the Thunder once again mentioned the start of the young Frenchman’s career…

Since a young age, Chet Holmgren has been presented as an extraordinary player, with an almost unique profile in the history of this sport.

Because he started as a point guard in high school, before reaching 2m16 and moving into the paint, he had time to develop good dribbling, quite impressive mobility and a fairly reliable shot for his size.

And it all showed on the field in his first season in the league. With 16.5 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.3 blocks on average, he greatly contributed to the Thunder’s great season.

Besides, any other year than this one, he would have been voted Rookie of the Year with a huge lead over his competitors. The problem is that he has to deal with a “major” rival.

Chet Holmgren still talks about Victor Wembanyama

Indeed, Victor Wembanyama is even better than him and he is already among the NBA elite.

A situation which must be all the more frustrating for Chet as they have been rivals since their clash at the U19 World Cup in 2021…

Speaking to Omar Raja of ESPN , he once again returned to this opposition with the young French

When I face Victor Wembanyama, I try to realize that there is a story being told in the media about us.

But at the same time, we must not forget that the match is Thunder against Spurs. You have to win, so I try to be at my best, while trying to leave my mark on the match.

The most important thing is to understand how big it is. It’s rare that I find myself facing someone bigger than me.

When attacking against him this is an important thing to take into consideration.

Chet Holmgren is each time in a particular state of mind before facing Victor Wembanyama.

He knows that the media are following this rivalry closely and he wants to leave his mark on this duel…

But on the other hand, he does not want to forget that the team comes before the rest, and that dominating without winning behind would be useless.

In any case, what is certain is that both will delight us for many years to come.

Chet Holmgren and Victor Wembanyama are perhaps the two most talented young interiors in the NBA.

Their rivalry fascinates the crowds, even if it is not easy for them to manage. Between individual pride and collective expectations, we must decide.
