After drafting international superstar Victor Wembanyama with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, the San Antonio Spurs were expected to be a team that might be able to turn things around immediately, even if it was a slight improvement from last season.
Unfortunately, Wembanyama hasn’t yet been a game-changer for the Spurs as he adjusts to the NBA game and figures out how to continue dominating in a way that only he can.
Despite the team being on 7-32 on the season and in last place in the Western Conference, Wembanyama is good for at least one or two highlights a night that have basketball fans dropping their jaws, and that remained true on Monday in the loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
It seems like when Wembanyama is determined to get to the rim, there’s no stopping him, and he proved that against the Hawks with this crazy dunk on the road at State Farm Arena, via Hoop Central.

Unfortunately for San Antonio, the team still lost this game in convincing fashion, with Trae Young getting the win over the visiting Spurs, 109-99.
However, Wembanyama, much like Young, who scored a game-high 36 points, put on a show with a team-high 26 points to go along with 13 rebounds, five blocks, two assists, and two steals.
Even though Wembanyama has not turned the Spurs into a legitimate force to be reckoned with in the West thus far, there’s no doubting his ability to make these games entertaining as he is must-see TV, with it only being a matter of time before San Antonio becomes a threat in the conference once again.
