1. Tony Parker
Tony Parker is the best French player to ever grace the NBA, and he set an example for Wembanyama to follow if he ever wants to achieve team success and notoriety in this league. We would list all of his accolades, but it would take an entire article to highlight the achievements of the soon-to-be Hall of Famer.
Wemby grew up a massive Tony Parker fan, and ending up on the same team as the player he idolized as a child is almost too good to be true. Parker won four championships and a Finals MVP with the Spurs, and having him as a mentor should motivate Victor to give it his all to reach the same heights as the French superstar.
Bringing Tony Parker back as someone who can show Wembanyama the ropes could be helpful for San Antonio. After all, he was once an inexperienced teenager from France who arrived stateside to play for the Spurs under the tutelage of coach Pop. Is there anyone better to help him transition to life in the NBA?
A new era of Spurs basketball will soon begin, and there is no better time for a generational prospect like Victor Wembanyama to carry the torch for all the legendary players who came before him. Perhaps he will even become the leader Parker got to be for Popovich as he tries to lead the Silver and Black into their next golden age.
