The rookie phenom was dominant on both ends of the court and he ended the evening with a very impressive stat line. Wemby only played 23 minutes, but he made the most of his short time on the court. He poured in 23 points on a very efficient 10-15 field goals made, while also adding four rebounds and four assists. He also made a big impact on the defensive side, as he finished the game with three blocks.

NBA Central posted a video to its X account, highligting some of his best plays and it goes without saying, it is very highly impressive.

At this point, it is safe to say that basketball fans have never seen a player quite like this before. His combination of size, length, wingspan, ball handling skills, shooting and defensive prowess is truly remarkable to watch and at only 19 years old, he will only get better, which is a scary thought for the rest of the NBA.

After Friday nights performance, basketball fans took to social media to react to what they had just witnessed, here is what some of them had to say:

With the NBA regular season less than two weeks away, the hype will continue to grow for Wembanyama and the sky is truly the limit for a player with his unique skillset.

The San Antonio Spurs will host their in-state rivals the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday October 25th for their season opener, which will be one of the most anticipated regular season NBA game in quite some time.
