Spurs Misspelled Victor Wembanyama’s Name On His Jersey In First Half Vs. Warriors
Rookie of the Year frontrunner, future Most Valuable Player, future Defensive Player of the Year—these are just some of the early impressions of Victor Wembanyama.
Even though all that glitters isn’t gold yet, Wembanyama has somewhat validated the hype and is putting everyone on notice. So far this season, he has been able to average 19.0 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game.
What sets the 19-year-old rookie apart is his versatility for someone who stands at 7-foot-4. He is more than just tall. He can handle the ball well, shoot from deep, move like a guard, and cover a lot of ground with ease. This rare combination of skills and frame is why he’s viewed as a generational talent and a future all-time great.
So even though the Spurs have been struggling as a team, Wemby has already put everyone on notice. Everyone? Well, apparently not, as someone on his own team managed to misfire when they produced his jersey for Friday night’s game against the Golden State Warriors.
On this jersey, his name was spelled “Wembanyana,”. He wore it for the first half until switching it out at halftime for one that rightly said “Wembanyama”. However, I can already tell that someone will be paying a lot of money for that official one-of-one misprinted jersey.
