“There must be no one in front of me”
Announced as the future number 1 of the Draft 2023, Victor Wembanyama spoke out on the matter. And reported by RMCthe Frenchman explained: Sportingly, the most interesting thing is to always fall into an organization that will take care of the project and the player. I have no doubt about that. It’s better to be 2nd, 3rd or 20th if you have a better career afterwards. But I still have this part, I don’t know if it’s pride, of telling myself that there must be no one in front of me, that I must be above « .
“It brings me no stress”
Relaunched then on the pressure which must only increase about him as his arrival in the NBA approaches, Wembanyama added : » Against all expectations, what I keep in mind is that everything I do is for myself. The expectations of each other have nothing to do with my career. It brings me no stress. I’m really into my thing and everything I do comes from me, my thinking, my work. I have in mind what I will accomplish in the future. And I had in mind before what I have already accomplished. It doesn’t stem from anyone’s expectation but myself « .
