Victor Wembanyama will make his NBA debut by competing against Luka Doncic, as there are tentative plans for the San Antonio Spurs to play against the Dallas Mavericks to kick off the NBA season 2023-24.
“Victor Wembanyama’s first official NBA game is tentatively slated for Oct. 25, league sources say, with Wembanyama’s Spurs due to play host to Dallas and Luka Doncic,” Stein tweeted. “The NBA’s full formal 2023-24 schedule release is expected next week.”
Considering that the Mavs outperformed the Spurs in last season’s standings and Doncic, along with Kyrie Irving, possesses more experience compared to most Spurs players, it’s debatable why the league would choose to have Dallas start on the road. Nevertheless, this matchup promises to be a must-watch event not only for fans of the Mavericks and the Spurs but also for basketball enthusiasts in general.
