It's the final hours of the first year of the Victor Wembanyama era in the 2-1-0. Fans of the Spurs, paired with the rest of the league, have been in for a treat while watching the number one overall pick shine on a nightly basis. While his play has yet to translate consistently in the win column, there are plenty of reasons to be hopeful for his sophomore season.

Victor has been on another tear in his last five games, with averages of 27.0 PPG, 11.6 RPG, 5.4 APG, and 2.6 BPG. His stellar rookie campaign is coming to an encouraging end.

Wembanyama knows how dangerous he can be

Amid his hot streak, Victor has been doing much more than producing numbers in the box score. During this stretch of five games, Victor has put up 30+ points in three outings. Most notably, Wembanyama rewrote the history books again in his matchup with the New York Knicks, where he recorded 40 points, 20 rebounds, seven assists, and four three-pointers, becoming the first rookie ever to put those numbers up.

In their recent clash with the Golden State Warriors, Wemby once again stuffed the stat sheet with a box score of 32 points, nine rebounds, five assists, three blocks, and four steals. The performance would not be enough, though, as the short-handed Spurs without Devin Vassell, Jeremy Sochan, and Keldon Johnson would fall 117-113.

Victor's star-studded night was not taken for granted. After the game, he made a tremendous statement in his press conference that displayed immense confidence in himself and what he's capable of.

Victor didn't receive the "generational" label for no reason. His talent on the court is spectacular to watch on any given night but to see the significant mental toughness and confidence in himself as a twenty-year-old is generational in itself.

While the first season with Wembanyama at the helm hasn't been successful in sparking a winning culture, Spurs fans have another reason to be assured that Victor will be the one to provide it in the coming future.
