LeBron James -The day that LeBron James will officially welcome Victor Wembanyama to the NBA has been anticipated by basketball enthusiasts. Before the rookie was selected, the four-time MVP had already referred to the Frenchman as a “alien.” Two of the most highly-touted prospects to enter the league squared up on Friday night.

Due to a sprained calf, “King James” missed the game on Wednesday but was eventually able to participate on Friday. The first face-off between the teenage phenom and the NBA’s all-time points leader had fans excited hours before tip-off.

Victor Wembanyama is almost twenty years younger than LeBron James. Nevertheless, the seasoned player demonstrated that he still has a lot left in him with this:

Late in the second quarter of the San Antonio Spurs versus Los Angeles Lakers game, James gave the co-leader in shot blocks in the NBA a hard staredown. Wembanyama was in front of him and the shot clock was down to 10 seconds when the former Rookie of the Year winner sunk the clutch shot.

The last 3-pointer LeBron James made in the first half. In 20 minutes, he finished with 18 points, 9 assists, and 1 steal. James’ nine assists tied a record for most in a quarter during his career deserving of the Hall of Fame. He last had the same amount of dishes in a game against the Indiana Pacers on January 29, 2010.

Nevertheless, the San Antonio Spurs led by a slim margin at halftime, 69–62. Victor Wembanyama finished with two assists, two blocks, eight rebounds, six points, and one steal.

For the LA Lakers to overcome the San Antonio Spurs, LeBron James will need to continue playing at a high level.

Even with LeBron James having a strong first half, the Spurs led by seven points at the half. James and Keldon Johnson tied for the most points scored as the Spurs forward ended with 17 markers. The shooting guard for San Antonio, Devin Vassell, contributed 15 points.

Austin Reaves has also been performing admirably. Along with three assists, he has five rebounds and 14 points. However, Anthony Davis is not playing for the LA Lakers due to hip and abductor pains. If James wants his team to have a chance to catch up to the Spurs, he needs to continue playing well.

On most possessions, LeBron James and Victor Wembanyama don’t face off against each other. However, there are times when they will confront each other head-on. For months, fans have been anticipating this matchup. James has fulfilled his obligations, but “Wemby” hasn’t yet arrived.

Fans may get their money’s worth in the second half because the rookie is anticipated to play with more aggression.
