San Antonio Spurs rookie Victor Wembanyama was his usual self on Tuesday, guiding his team to a 102-87 win over the Memphis Grizzlies with a complete stat line of 18 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, and 7 blocks.

Yet, it was not just his on-court prowess that grabbed headlines post-game; it was his trash-talking that stole the spotlight.

Grizzlies rookie GG Jackson could not help but marvel at Wembanyama’s towering presence, revealing that his trash talk was heard like mere whispers from high above.

“He’s so high in the air. When he talks trash, he sounds like he’s whispering,” Jackson shared, via Matt Infield. “He was like, ‘Go back up. Go. Go. You scared. You scared. You scared.'”

It’s evident that opponents often feel intimidated by Wemby’s imposing stature and defensive prowess, a sentiment Jackson acknowledges.

“He’s definitely gonna be one of the greatest defenders of all-time when it’s all said and done,” Jackson said of the main candidate for the NBA Rookie of the Year Award.

Wembanyama’s defensive dominance is reflected in his league-leading blocks, swatting away an average of 3.6 shots per game.

Moreover, the Frenchman is maintaining an all-around game, averaging 21.3 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.2 steals across 70 appearances.
