Passing through the US, Victor Wembanyama stood out in the middle of a match!


Before settling there, no doubt definitively, within a year, Victor Wembanyama has decided to take a short trip across the Atlantic. On the spot, he did not manage to stay very long away from the parquet floors, and had a brilliant meeting there!

Before the return of the Betclic Elite, which he will compete in the colors of Boulogne-Levallois from September 24, he has a little time to relax, and to better tackle the coming season. Victor Wembanyama would probably have preferred not to be entitled to this rest, he who was to take part in the preparation of the Blues for the Euro, before his physique prevents him from doing so. No question, however, for him to brood in France.

In the US, Victor Wembanyama crosses paths with a French nugget

It has now been a few days since Wembanyama left France to discover the United States, where he had never set foot before. Passed by California, he recently put his bags on the side of Dallas, where he was able to attend a WNBA game of the Wings, this Thursday. Good news, another great French hope was in the ranks of the opposing team!

The announced 1st pick of the 2023 NBA Draft, Victor Wembanyama, went to the game between the Dallas Wings and the Las Vegas Aces this (Thursday) evening. He was able to exchange with his French compatriot and rookie of Las Vegas Aces Iliana Rupert at the end of the meeting.

A Franco-French meeting which unfortunately did not bring luck to Vegas, defeated 82-84.

The promising Iliana Rupert did not play a single minute of the game, set back for a few days by her coach, Becky Hammon, in the rotation of the Aces. A scenario that did not dampen the enthusiasm of Wembz, visibly overwhelmed by this experience!

Victor Wembanyama on his first WNBA game between the Wings and the Aces: “I loved it, I was excited. This is the first time he has traveled to the United States. He visited California, then arrived in Dallas, Texas… where his Comsport agency is located. He said American food could be better lol

Before finding a priori Iliana Rupert next year in the States under the status of NBA player, Victor Wembanyama has already been able to exchange a few words with her as a simple WNBA spectator. A reunion that apparently made him very happy!
