Victor Wembanyama, Rudy Gobert warn the NBA of the phenomenon

Victor Wembanyama no longer needs to be presented in the United States. With his performance against Team Ignite on American soil, the Frenchman has established himself as the #1 assured pick of the 2023 NBA Draft. And currently, the hype around the young interior has never been so strong.

Even in France, the Boulogne-Levallois matches have never aroused such interest. In the meantime, the Americans do not miss the slightest opportunity to collect reactions about it. Thus, the interior of the Minnesota Timberwolves Rudy Gobert does not escape questions about his compatriot.

And unsurprisingly, he is very complimentary towards the 18-year-old prodigy.

« He’s unique, we’ve never seen that before. I can’t wait to keep watching him grow. To see how he develops. A player like the world has never seen. It’s really exciting. I am not a scout.

But everyone can see him, he’s taller than me, longer than me. He can stretch the game, make passes. But he also wants to play in defense, he will be a very good defender. And he really likes to win.

That’s what I like the most about him, he really plays to win. A great kid, » replied Rudy Gobert in front of the media.

Nice compliments to the native of Nanterre. And from a very tricolor point of view, we can’t wait to see this duo in action with the selection. From the World Cup in 2023? It would be a good experience to prepare for the Paris Olympics in 2024.

Victor Wembanyama: 17 pts, victory and a counter from space
