20 Ways Victor Wembanyama would change the Spurs forever
1: Offensive Improvement
Wembanyama's ability to stretch the floor, dribble in space, and finish at the rim will immediately improve the offense by adding an incredibly versatile weapon. The gravity his presence demands will also benefit other players on the court, giving them more room to operate.
2: Defensive Impact
This kid is 7-foot-4 with an eight-foot wingspan, and he has averaged 3.1 blocks per game this season. It is easy to see the defensive impact he will make as a rim protector, but he also has the ability to move his feet on the perimeter and secure rebounds. After leading the LNB in rebounding by a wide margin, there is no doubt Wemby understands the importance of finishing the defensive possession by corralling boards.
3: Confidence Builder
The moment you know you have "the guy" on your roster, everyone from the surrounding players to the coaching staff receives a boost of confidence. Having an elite talent is the difference between knowing you may still lose even if you try your best and feeling like you always have a chance to win, no matter the odds.
4: Primetime Games
In 2004, the year after the Cleveland Cavaliers drafted LeBron James, they were on television for every single one of their regular season games. Landing Wembanyama could take the Spurs from zero nationally televised games to frequent primetime matchups on ESPN and TNT.
