Victor Wembanyama on NBA and FIFA: 'Two different sports'

During the French national team's media day, we had the opportunity to talk about many things with Victor Wembanyama, most notably the difference between an NBA match and an FIBA ​​match.

Wimpy now knows both. Who has just finished his first season with Tottenham, played for the first time in France, in ASVEL and with Mets 92 as a reminder. Therefore, he knows the “European” and “American” game. The Chesnai native already has his own preferences, and is well aware that it's not the same thing at all.

I asked Victor Wimpanyama if he feels stronger in the NBA or FIBA:

“It's not even two different games, it's two different sports. My personal preference is the NBA, but I have little experience, and I still have a lot of things to discover…@TrashTalk_fr pic.twitter.com/BeASU55vdM

Regardless of the competition, Victor Wimpanyama should have a big impact on EDF's game. With Rudy Gobert as their sparring partner, the UFO want to shock the basketball world, and they have what it takes to do so. However, he's on the same wavelength as Rudy on this level.

Victor Wembanyama on his association with Rudy Gobert: “I'm very excited about the idea of ​​sharing the field with him, we talk about it a lot with the staff and the players. We are on the right wavelength. The goal is to do something new.”@TrashTalk_fr pic.twitter.com/LyHKWX98pm

Regardless, Wimpy seems really keen to compete in the 2024 Olympics, in Paris, in front of his home crowd. The ambition overflows and the desire to compete with the greatest nations in basketball is great.

Victor Wimbanyama: “I don't know if this is the toughest tournament ever, we'll only know after the competition is over. Team USA? It's really exciting, and I hope we get the chance to play against them, it's a dream to play against all these legends.@TrashTalk_fr pic.twitter.com/UGzqemRweh

It's really no coincidence that the Olympics are considered the biggest international competition by many, but the meaning is different when they're played in your own country, with an entire nation cheering on the French players.
