Over the previous years or two, the Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green has actually been among the NBA’s finest protective gamers, and he was called the Defensive Player of the Year in 2017.

This year, Rudy Gobert of the Minnesota Timberwolves appears to be the odds-on preferred to win the award.

But Green states that San Antonio Spurs novice feeling Victor Wembanyama need to win the Defensive Player of the Year award rather of Gobert, per The Volume.

While Gobert is balancing 2.1 obstructed shots per video game, which is respectable, Wembanyama is leading everybody with 3.5 blocks per video game.

The French phenom is noted at 7-foot-4, however his arms appear to be 20 feet long, and as an outcome, he can solitarily close down the paint and discourage dribble penetration.

Overall, he’s balancing 21.2 points and 10.5 rebounds regardless of playing just 29.3 minutes a video game, and recently, he has actually been choosing things up.

He had 40 points, 20 rebounds, and 7 helps in an overtime win over the New York Knicks last Friday, and on Tuesday, he was 2 helps and one block far from a quadruple-double, something that is very uncommon in professional basketball.

Despite Wembanyama’s exploits, the Spurs have actually been terrible this season, and it’s just due to the fact that they don’t have much skill or ability around him.

But you can see him coming as a future all-time terrific currently, and he’s currently appearing like a problem for the remainder of the league.

It’s frightening to believe how terrific he will remain in simply 2 or 3 years when he will still be a number of seasons far from entering his prime.
