NBA – “This guy will become a real rival of Victor Wembanyama if…

In just a few months, Victor Wembanyama has extinguished any possible competition with other rookies, but also with other defenders in the league.

Finally, according to a journalist, there is indeed a man who could take up the challenge and tickle the Frenchman…

If the title risks escaping him this season, even though many fans and players like Draymond Green are campaigning in his favor, Victor Wembanyama will retire with numerous Defender of the Year trophies.

In fact, the only thing that could prevent him from beating the record of Ben Wallace, Dikembe Mutombo and soon Rudy Gobert is voter fatigue.

As for LeBron James with the title of MVP at a certain period of his career, the DPOY could no longer reward the best defender in the world, but the best behind the French pivot.

It’s an important nuance that could have a real impact in a few decades, especially if he manages to find a place in the GOAT conversation.

Jonathan Isaac future DPOY ?!

Unless a rival emerges in the years to come and overshadows him in the racket.

For a journalist this player already potentially exists, and he would simply need more minutes on the floor to prove it.

But it’s a condition that has been a problem for Jonathan Isaac since his debut.

Jonathan Isaac could become a real rival for Victor Wembanyama in the Defender of the Year race if he is given more regular minutes next season.

Jonathan Isaac has always been an excellent defender, this is his primary quality on the pitch.

The problem for him and the Magic is that he never really manages to string together matches, since he is particularly prone to injuries.

The proof is that he has missed 25 games this year, his second lowest total since his Draft in 2017…

Jamahl Mosley could therefore find himself with a big dilemma next year, as the Magic look to confirm their status as a playoff team.

Build your defense around Isaac, even if it means overworking him and risking injury, or use him occasionally depending on the opponents and the matches? Orlando’s development could depend on it.

If he wasn’t injured and absent so often, Jonathan Isaac would clearly be considered one of the best defenders in the world.

With health, he could clearly overshadow Victor Wembanyama on this side of the field.
