After the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the struggling San Antonio Spurs 102-94 to end the Spurs’ 15-game winning streak, Victor Wembanyama became the target of the team’s lighthearted social media jabs. While Keldon Johnson (21 points) and Devin Vassell (22 points) led San Antonio in scoring, Wembanyama finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds. With 18 points, Mike Conley Jr. led Minnesota, aided by Anthony Edwards (17 points) and Karl-Anthony Towns (14 points). With a remarkable 21 rebounds and 16 points, Rudy Gobert stood out.

Following their most recent victory, Victor Wembanyama was featured prominently on the team’s social media accounts, which once again buzzed with inventiveness. Past the entertaining memes, the Minnesota Timberwolves emerged victorious, improving to 16-4 overall and establishing themselves as the team leading the Western Conference.

They also have the lowest record in the league, which is an unparalleled record. The only team in the NBA that comes close to them is Boston, which has only suffered five losses. Their unwavering drive for victory puts them ahead of the pack and sets an incredible benchmark.

Victor Wembanyama has held his own despite negative outcomes

Victor Wembanyama, the highly anticipated rookie, is proving that he is the league’s future star on tough NBA terrain. This season, he has averaged 19.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks, showing that even at the age of 18, he can compete with more experienced opponents. With averages of 19.8 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks over a recent five-game period, he showed even more domination. Wembanyama continues to have an increasing influence in the league with his steady play.

Although there have been some early similarities between Victor Wembanyama and Chet Holmgren, former NBA player Kenyon Martin advised against making too many assumptions about the French talent and the newcomer to the OKC Thunder;

“We don’t know what Chet would look like last year…So this is not fair to be comparing Wemby to a second-year guy, let’s start there, we don’t know what he would have looked like last year, coming in with a target on his back and everybody attacking him night in night out,” an article from sportskeeda.com mentioned.

Although Victor Wembanyama is a talented young player, he and the Spurs recognize that patience is essential to their success. When one considers the Orlando Magic’s journey under Paolo Banchero from the previous season—the team has since won this one—one can see that changes take time. Whether San Antonio and the top draft pick can have a similar trajectory of development and success remains to be seen. The secret to this story as it develops lies only in time.
