JUST IN : What Victor Wembanyama said after his game against Brooklyn on Sunday,


Victor Wembanyama sometimes puts on performances like the one he had against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, when he scored 33 points, and you forget he is only in his rookie season. However, Wembanyama believes there is much more to come from him and that he is “not even close” to his best, making an unsettling remark for the rest of the NBA given some of his rookie performances.
Despite playing a key part in his team’s 122-115 overtime victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, San Antonio Spurs player Victor Wembanyama claims he is “not even close” to being at his best.

Wembanyama joined an illustrious group as he became just the fourth player, after Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Charles Barkley and Joel Embiid, to finish a game with over 30 points, 15 rebounds, seven blocks and seven assists since blocks were introduced as a stat in the 1973-74 season.
Another remarkable stat from Sunday’s games was that whilst Wembanyama had seven blocks, not a single team who played on Sunday blocked more shots than him, in total.
He ended with 33 points with 13 of those coming in the fourth quarter and overtime as the No. 1 overall pick played a pivotal role in his team’s win.

Speaking afterwards, Wembanyama said that whilst things were getting easier for him after some struggles earlier in the season as a rookie, he was nowhere near his peak.

“I love it,” he stated about his team’s performance in overtime. “I think it’s those moments we progress the most, where we get better rather than any other moment in the game so it’s really, really enjoyable – especially when you win.”Looking back and over the season, I can see not only our improvement, but also my progression, and while it feels like it’s happening little by little every game, doing it every day adds up to something enormous over the course of the season.

“So this is stuff I wouldn’t have been able to do in the first game of the season, but I’m proud of how we improved.

“It’s a day-by-day thing but what’s for sure is I’m not even close from being at my best so … I don’t see my progression stopping anytime soon so it’s good, good for confidence and, you know, there’s a lot to correct, a lot to adjust.”
It’s been a difficult season for the Spurs, with Wembanyama facing a steep learning curve at the start.
With a 15-53 record, they are currently at the bottom of the Western Conference and have the third-worst overall record in the NBA.
