NBA – Popovich snubs Wembanyama for his favorite Spurs player, fans surprised: “Ironic”

Gregg Popovich and Victor Wembanyama at a press conference

Still talkative at the press conference, Gregg Popovich revealed his favorite Spurs player today… and it’s not Victor Wembanyama. But his answer may surprise you.

While Victor Wembanyama once again broke the screen against the Warriors this Sunday, other teammates showed good things.

Jeremy Sochan, Devin Vassell and Keldon Johnson were all out, forcing Gregg Popovich to rotate his roster slightly for the game.

Sandro Mamukelashvili, or Mamu for short, took the opportunity to shine.

Gregg Popovich reveals his favorite Spurs player

With 10 points on 4/6 shooting, 11 rebounds and 2 assists, the 24-year-old confirmed he has interesting potential.

He is highly regarded at the Spurs and could earn a spot in the rotation next season.

Gregg Popovich is in any case a fan, since we are talking about his favorite player on the roster, ahead of Wemby.

Gregg Popovich on Mamu after his double-double : “He’s my favorite player.

He moves without the ball, he makes cuts, he tries to recover lost balls.

The way he plays is fun to watch.

He is always moving and never stops. It’s fun to watch him play. »

A feeling shared by many fans, who hope to see Mamu more often at the end of the season, with a possible place in the rotation.

It’s ironic to see Pop say he’s his favorite player when he doesn’t give him that many minutes.

Play it more often then

Gregg Popovich has his little favorite at the Spurs, and it’s not Victor Wembanyama.

However, fans certainly agree as Sandro Mamukelashvili is fun to watch play.

Let’s hope for them that his adventure continues in Texas.
