Current champion, Jokic praises Wembanyama and guarantees: “It will change the game”

NBA star and current league champion, Nikola Jokic spared no praise for young Victor Wembanyama and guaranteed a change in the current game with the Frenchman

One of the main stars in the NBA today, Nikola Jokic praised one of the most promising players in the league today, Victor Wembanyama. Current champion and two-time MVP, the Serbian was full of praise for his professional partner, and also assured that the Frenchman will change the sport in the future.

He will change the game 100%. You are already on this path. Just enjoy, look at the calendar and let the boy change basketball“, said the player from Denver Nuggets. Last Sunday, the 26th, the two faced each other on the court, with Jokic’s team winning 132 to 120.

Even so, the young player managed a double-double, with 20 points and 11 rebounds, which earned more praise from the ‘Joker’: “He’s making mistakes, which is normal. I think the attention from the media surrounding him doesn’t help either. But he’ll get used to it, because he’s 19.”

It’s worth remembering that this is Wembanyama’s first season in the NBA, and he already has impressive averages, with 19.2 points and 9.5 rebounds. In addition, the player will still compete for the rookie of the year award until the end of the regular season, along with Chet Holmgren of Oklahoma City Thunder. Despite their good performances, Spurs are not doing well in the competition.
