Despite their 18-56 record during the 2023-24 NBA season, the future is beyond bright for the San Antonio Spurs because of the rapid development of Victor Wembanyama.

Wembanyama, the 2023 NBA Draft’s No. 1 overall pick, has quickly become a rising star as he is routinely making an impact on both ends of the floor.

While the rest of the Spurs’ roster needs work, Wembanyama has established himself as the franchise’s new face and it’s almost impossible to predict how good he’ll be considering how quickly he’s improved during the regular season.

The France native had another impressive game recently as he led San Antonio to a thrilling overtime win against the New York Knicks.

Jalen Brunson dropped a career-high 61 points in the matchup, but Wembanyama held his own with 40 points of his own.

After the final buzzer sounded, Wembanyama threw the game ball into the stands and the league office fined him for the action via Marc J. Spears of ESPN.

“Spurs star rookie Victor Wembanyama fined $25,000 by NBA for throwing the ball into stands,” Spears reported.

Wembanyama was simply hyped after the Spurs pulled off the upset and didn’t mean to cause any harm, though tossing the ball into the stands is still considered behavior detrimental to the league.

Knowing the rookie, he’ll learn from the fine and be better about controlling his excitement.

San Antonio may be heading for another high lottery pick this year, but it’s hard not to feel optimistic about the direction of the franchise with Wembanyama looking as good as he does.
