Watch: Victor Wembanyama one-ups Giannis Antetokounmpo with nasty self-alley-oop

Giannis Antetokounmpo (44 PTS) & Victor Wembanyama (27 PTS) Battle It Out In INSTANT CLASSIC!


San Antonio Spurs rookie Victor Wembanyama out-freaked the Greek Freak Thursday against the Milwaukee Bucks at Frost Bank Center in San Antonio, Texas, Renzo Pocholo Salao and Larry Brown reports.

Giannis Antetokounmpo gave the Bucks a 42-36 lead early in the second quarter with a sick spin move and slammed over multiple defenders. The kind of freakish athleticism earned the Bucks star his moniker.

Wembanyama took things to another level on the next possession. The Spurs youngster left the Bucks veteran in the dust and executed an unreal alley-oop to himself off the glass.


Here’s the dunk, as seen through the NBA phantom cam. Bucks’ big man Bobby Portis couldn’t hide his disbelief after watching the play up close.



Wembanyama entered halftime with an ordinary stat line of 8 points and 5 rebounds. It was a perfect example of how the box score does not tell the whole story.



The Frenchman also had another highlight-reel finish to start the second half. He paid homage to Jamal Crawford with the behind-the-back move, then dunked over 2023 DPOY runner-up Brooke Lopez.



The Spurs star’s jaw-dropping jams each counted as one field goal. But watching Wembanyama’s ridiculous combination of size and fluidity at work showcases his unbounded potential.

Wembanyama wasn’t even the only freakish 7-foot rookie to execute a self-alley-oop this season. The race for the 2023-24 Rookie of the Year projects to be one of the toughest in years.
