维克托·文班亚马在圣安东尼奥马刺队的第一个赛季已经结束。

马刺队表示,这位 7 英尺 4 英寸的法国现象不会参加周日对阵底特律活塞队的赛季收官战,他的新秀赛季将结束,几乎可以肯定他将获得年度最佳新秀荣誉。

他的最终数据:场均 21.4 分、10.6 个篮板、3.9 次助攻和全联盟最高的 3.6 次盖帽。马刺队教练格雷格·波波维奇在周五战胜丹佛掘金队的比赛后表示,文班亚马可能会被排除在总决赛之外,而球队在周六证实了这一决定。给出的官方原因是右脚踝伤势管理。

“真正有趣的是,当你从年初看到他现在的时候,你会发现他进步了多少,”丹佛掘金队的教练迈克尔·马龙本月早些时候在谈到文班亚马时说道。“我的意思是,这是显而易见的。他是一个非常有天赋的球员,但当你现在看到他时…波波在短短一个赛季内就做出了非常出色的工作来培养他。”

文班亚马——2023 年 NBA 选秀状元——在马刺队出场 71 场比赛,马刺队进入了总决赛,以 21-60 的战绩与波特兰并列进入赛季的最后一天,创下西部联盟最差战绩。

在他的最后一场新秀比赛中,他得到 34 分、12 个篮板、5 次助攻、2 次盖帽和 5 个三分球,在周五晚上以 121-120 击败卫冕 NBA 冠军丹佛掘金队。马刺队从 23 分落后反败为胜——这是他们本赛季最大的逆转,而文班亚马在时间到期后庆祝地挥动球。

“作为一个不断发展的年轻球队,这对我们来说意义重大,”文班亚马在赛后说道。“我们未来需要这些胜利。我们需要每一场胜利。但是对阵强队、顶级种子的大比分胜利,我们未来需要这些胜利。”

他成为第四位,也是第一位在一个赛季中以至少 1,500 分、250 次助攻和 250 次盖帽完赛的球员。其他人:贾巴尔做到过五次,哈基姆·奥拉朱旺做到过两次,而马刺队的传奇球员大卫·罗宾逊做到过两次。自 1993-94 年以来,还没有人做到过,当时奥拉朱旺和罗宾逊都有这样的赛季。

文班亚马直到下个赛季才会再次为马刺队效力,但据推测,球迷们会在此之前看到他上场。他预计将成为今年夏天巴黎奥运会法国阵容的一员。

并且他多次表示,他认为马刺队正朝着再次成为争冠球队的正确方向前进。

“我们有很大的潜力,”文班亚马说道。“我们有机会和球迷一起经历这一切,我只希望它会不可思议。”

Spurs’ Wembanyama won’t play in season finale

Associated Press

Victor Wembanyama’s rookie season with the San Antonio Spurs is over.

The Spurs said that the 7-foot-4 French phenom will not play in Sunday’s season finale against the Detroit Pistons, ending a year that will almost certainly see him take home rookie of the year honors.

His final numbers: 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and an NBA-best 3.6 blocked shots per game. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich suggested after Friday’s win over Denver that Wembanyama might be held out for the finale, and the team confirmed that decision Saturday. The official reason cited was right ankle injury management.

“What’s really been interesting is when you watch him from the beginning of the year to now is how much better he’s gotten,” Denver coach Michael Malone said of Wembanyama earlier this month. “I mean, it’s noticeable. He came in as a really talented player, but when you watch him now … Pop’s done a hell of a job building him up in one season.”

Wembanyama – the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NBA draft – appeared in 71 games with the Spurs, who enter the finale with a 21-60 record and tied entering the season’s final day with Portland for the worst record in the Western Conference.

He had 34 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and five 3-pointers in what was his last game as a rookie, a 121-120 win over defending NBA champion Denver on Friday night. The Spurs rallied from 23 points down to win the game – their biggest comeback win of the season, and Wembanyama gave the ball a celebratory spike as time expired.

“As a growing team, a young team, it’s big for us,” Wembanyama said after the game. “We’re going to need these kind of wins in the future. We’re going to need any win. But big-time wins against big teams, first seeds, we’re going to need those in the future.”

He became just the fourth player, and first rookie, to finish a season with at least 1,500 points, 250 assists and 250 blocked shots. The others: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar did it five times, Hakeem Olajuwon did it twice and former Spurs great David Robinson did it twice. Nobody had done it since 1993-94, when Olajuwon and Robinson both had such a season.

Wembanyama won’t play again for the Spurs until next season, but fans will presumably see him play long before that. He’s expected to be part of the French roster for the Paris Olympics this summer.

And he’s said many times that he feels the Spurs are on the right path toward becoming a contender again.

“We’ve got the potential to be great,” Wembanyama said. “The fact that we have the chance to live this, with the fans, I can only hope it’s as incredible as it can be.”
