1) Wembanyama is more than coachability

No matter how great you are as a player, there's always something you can improve on. As the old saying goes, "No one is perfect." As great of a young talent as Wembanyama is, he knows he still has much more to learn about the NBA game, and there's no one better to teach him than the master Gregg Popovich who coached five San Antonio Spurs title teams ('99, '03, '05, '07, '14).

Pop, 75, is the oldest head coach in the entire NBA and has been coaching in the league for over 25 years. He's seen it all not just in the NBA, but in life. Wemby's willingness to learn Pop and it being mutual helps benefit both parties.

"He tries to learn from us as much as we learn from him,” Wembanyama said.

That genius-level education Wembanyama is soaking in like a sponge from Pop will go a long way in determining the major progress we see throughout his career. We've already seen him take a massive leap since switching to the center position around December and it has done wonders for his efficiency levels on both ends.

With his dominance on both ends unlike any player in the league, and his willingness to be coached and get better, Wembanyama will be a top 10 player in the league. It'll all come down to winning and if he can stay healthy.
