Victor Wembanyama is set to begin his first NBA season with the San Antonio Spurs. The one who is considered the face of the league in the coming years will have no easy task: to meet the huge expectations on him. One of the criticisms made of Wambaynama by his detractors concerns his physique: the Frenchman is very tall, but also very thin. According to many, therefore, Wemby will go “under” against the massive physiques of the NBA.
For his part, the Spurs rookie at Media Day today updated on his own weight. He stated that he he has already added a few kilograms, but of wanting to proceed gradually to avoid injury.
“Since I have been in San Antonio I have gained 10-15 punds. [circa 5-7 kg, ndr]. I will try to stop here, I don’t want to add too many punds in too short a time. We are at a good point. As I said, my physical condition is much, much better than it’s ever been in my whole life, so I’m fine.” Wembanyama said.
Prior to these words, the talented Frenchman was rated at 95 kilograms in weight so now he should have cleared 100.
