Tony Parker on Victor Wembanyama: “The sky is the limit for him. He can do whatever he wants”

Tony Parker doesn’t hold a grudge. As Victor Wembanyama leaves ASVEL for Boulogne-Levallois, the Villeurbannais president praised him on ESPN.

“As a person, he’s a wonderful human being, a wonderful child. And he is very, very talented. It’s hard to know how far he can go. That’s the beauty of it and that’s why I think every NBA GM thinks he’s going to be number one. The sky is the limit for him. He can do whatever he wants. »

Recall that Victor Wembanyama shot 6.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.9 blocks, 0.5 assists and 0.4 steals in 15 Euroleague games, and 8.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, 0.8 interceptions and 0.7 assists in Betclic Elite. He was shortlisted for EuroBasket in September.

” Nope “, he pointed out when asked if he could be compared to another player, “That’s why when people ask me who can you compare him to, I don’t know who to compare him to. He’s totally unique because he runs like a fullback, his tire like a fullback but he’s 2.19m and he’s super long, his wingspan is amazing. He wants to win and his mind is excellent too. Mentally, he wants to be the best. So, that’s the best part of it.
