Victor Wembanyama’s name is the hottest name in NBA circles right now.
Everybody’s talking about the No. 1 pick, and rightfully so, as he has a unique combination of shooting and ball-handling skills for a guy his size.
But as impressive and dominant as he’s been throughout the course of his career, Draymond Green still believes there are ways to contain him as he makes the transition to the pros.
In a sitdown with Paul George for “Podcast P,” Green explained that players would need to pressure him and crowd him as soon as he starts running up and down the court, stating that you just cannot let him get comfortable because no one is going to be able to contest his shot.

Green also claimed that Wembanyama is already as elite a rim protector as they have in the NBA right now, even taking a minor jab at Rudy Gobert for all the money he’s making for just being a rim protector.
Wembanyama has been a subject of debate for years now, with some people thinking he has all the tools to be one of the greatest — if not the greatest — players in the history of the game, and others preparing themselves for him to be a generational bust.
Whatever the case, he’s going to be must-watch television early in his career, and it’ll be interesting to see if he’s able to develop counters and dominate all the little things that the elite defenders in the NBA will look to take away from his game.NEXT: Analyst Says Warriors Have The 'Best Big 3' In The NBA
