3/29/24 - 40 points and 20 rebounds completely rewrites the history books

In his first matchup with the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden, Knicks fans were chanting "overrated" toward Wembanyama, and he took that personally.

In the rematch at Frost Bank Center, Victor would take control from start to finish, recording 40 points, 20 rebounds, and seven assists. His performance would lead the Spurs to the win despite Jalen Brunson's 61-point barrage.

Wembanyama would cement himself amongst NBA legends by becoming the first rookie, once again, Shaq, to rack up a 40-point, 20-rebound double-double. Victor would also become the second-youngest in history to accomplish the stat line, behind John Drew of the Atlanta Hawks.

The 20-year-old also became the first rookie in NBA history with 35+ points, 20+ rebounds, 5+ assists, and 3+ makes from three-point range.

Wembanyama's rookie season was a highlight reel

Victor finished the year with averages of 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 3.6 blocks, and 1.2 steals per game on shooting splits of 46.5% from the floor, 32.5% from three-point range, and 79.6% from the foul stripe.

While his stellar play has yet to translate into the win column, the Spurs have their future face of the franchise in Wembanyama. It'll be another six months till we see him take the floor for the Silver and Black, but he left no shortage of highlights to keep us entertained in the offseason and he's only sure to add more during the Summer Olympics.
