He has already broken records, he will break many more, and here he continues to break records even though he is not even playing. Selected in the All-NBA Defensive 1st Team for the 2023-24 season, Victor Wembanyama thus becomes… the first rookie in history to achieve this feat.

The suspense was as unbearable as during a Rafael Nadal – Gael Monfils between 2005 and 2020, but the NBA made it official at exactly 8 p.m.: Victor Wembanyama is part of the All-NBA Defensive 1st Team. He accompanies Rudy Gobert, who in the process recovers his seventh scepter of this kind, and he therefore becomes at the same time the first rookie in history thus distinguished.

San Antonio’s Victor Wembanyama is the first rookie to be selected to the Kia NBA All-Defensive First Team. The NBA has named an All-Defensive Team (First Team and Second Team) annually since the 1968-69 season.

Messrs. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Manute Bol, Hakeem Olajuwon, Tim Duncan and David Robinson, move on, there’s nothing to see, the flex of this sentence is enormous, but know that if the five legends mentioned above have all been rewarded with a place in an All-NBA Defensive Team in year 1, none of them had then squatted the 1st Team.

One more feat for Wemby, who wonders what he will leave to the competition from the 2024-25 season, as he has already dominated from his first hectometers in the NBA…
