ESPN’s Sharpe believes Spurs’ Victor Wembanyama will capture his first NBA MVP award quickly

SAN ANTONIO — In his rookie season, San Antonio Spurs‘ Victor Wembanyama took the NBA by storm.

The 20-year-old racked up countless records and multiple Rookie of the Month Awards and was ultimately named the 2023-24 NBA Rookie of the Year.

But will he see an NBA MVP Award sitting on his shelf soon? In as little as four years?

ESPN’s Shannon Sharpe believes it will happen.

During a recent episode of “First Take,” Sharpe expressed his thoughts on Wemby capturing the MVP award much sooner than expected.

“He’s going to win the MVP within his first four years,” Sharpe said. “Because he can score. He’ll average 25 (points), give you 12 (rebounds), give you three blocks with three assists. The Spurs will make the playoffs and it will be solely because of him. I say by the time he is 23 or 24, he’ll have an MVP on his mantle.” 

Wemby certainly has the skill set to be in the MVP conversation. However, the Spurs are still rebuilding and need time to become a perennial playoff contender to push the center in MVP talks.

The roster will need to complement him to make him an MVP, and San Antonio can make changes now to make this a reality.

The Spurs own a treasure chest of draft picks (first—and second-rounders), cap space to entice a solid free agent to come to San Antonio, and the ability to flip players on the current roster for a player (or players) to help Wemby.

Moreover, the Spurs will have to be a playoff team (1-6) in a strong Western Conference, remain healthy, and maintain their status as a playoff team for multiple seasons.

Wemby has made it clear he wants to win now, but will the Spurs help him make that happen?

What say you, Spurs fans? Can Wemby make it into the MVP conversation within four seasons? Let us know on X at KENS 5 and JeffGSpursKENS5.
