Victor Wembanyama and the Spurs Will Work Well Together

By Miguel Mike Medina

Top prospect Victor Wembanyama will be very special for years in the NBA if he can stay healthy. He’s the biggest hype name since Lebron James. Victor could change the NBA forever. He’s a combination of Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant, and Rudy Gobert all in one package. He can shoot, play defense, and score from anywhere.

The San Antonio Spurs won the 2023 NBA Draft lottery for the first time since 1997 when they drafted Tim Duncan. We all know what happened when they got Tim Duncan. It changed the entire franchise. With Duncan, the Spurs won five championships. Can Victor Wembanyama bring the Spurs back to the glory days?

Landing in San Antonio is the perfect fit instead of starting his career in a big market city. San Antonio is a classy organization. When you come to play for the Spurs, you must check your ego out the door. 

Victor needs a coach and mentor like Gregg Popovich, who is the greatest NBA coach ever, in my opinion, to guide him and mold him. Pop doesn’t give special treatment. He will call you out if you are not doing your job on the court. 

The NBA Draft will be must-see TV because of the first selection. 

Sports Throwback Thursday: Tracy McGrady’s 13 Points in 35 Seconds

Seventeen years ago, Tracy McGrady did the unthinkable: he dropped 13 points in the last 35 seconds of a game against the Spurs to win it for the Rockets.

The game was televised on NBA on TNT. The play-by-play announced for this game was the legend Marv Albert. No one expected what was about to happen in the last minute of the game. The game was pretty much over. Rockets have no chance to come back and win. T-Mac had other ideas.

McGrady got the ball one more time after Spurs guard Devin Brown fell down in the corner of the Spurs’ frontcourt with 7.9 seconds remaining, the Spurs leading 80-78. T-Mac hit the game-winner with a three. The crowd went crazy.

The Spurs were stunned. They squandered a 10-point lead to the Rockets with 1:02 remaining – and it got snatched away by McGrady’s heroics.
