Victor Wembanyama is easily the biggest draw of the NBA Summer League so far. Unfortunately, his first game with the Spurs was a huge disappointment. His shooting statistics were abysmal and a lot of fans rushed to call him a bust. However, over on Sunday night, he had an opportunity to redeem himself. In his second game, he played the Portland Trail Blazers in what promised to be a huge draw. Overall, Wembanyama was able to change the narrative around himself with a truly incredible performance.
The first-overall pick was able to pick up 27 points and another 12 rebounds throughout the night. Additionally, his shooting splits were a massive improvement from Friday night. He also had some big blocks, some three-pointers, and even some dunks that had fans singing his praises. All-in-all, he was looking a lot like the first-overall pick he was always destined to be.
