Victor Wembanyama had a successful Halloween party. Winner at the last minute of the Suns with his franchise of the San Antonio Spurs last night, at the end of a very encouraging individual performance, the 19-year-old Frenchman had all eyes on him even before the start of the match. On this Halloween evening, the former Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans player arrived at the Footprint Center in Phoenix disguised as Slenderman, a faceless fictional character. Already immense in size (he measures 2.24 meters), “Wemby” stood out with immense arms and an all-white body under a black suit. You can't miss it!
“It was an easy choice,” laughed the Habs. “I think I won for the most realistic costume.” Following the example of NBA stars, like Giannis Antetokounmpo who showed up as a Hulk at a press conference on Monday, Wembanyama celebrated October 31 in his own way, picking up his first away victory of the season later in the evening. Opposed to Kevin Durant, the number 1 of the Draft gained momentum over the minutes before being decisive in the last quarter. He finished the game with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 5 blocks in 28 minutes to participate in the success snatched (115-114) by the Spurs, led for 47 minutes and 58 seconds!
Author of great actions and a decisive “money-time”, Slenderman (“thin man” in French) did not pass through the evening like a ghost. Quite the contrary.
