The Spurs Shut Down Victor Wembanyama After Just Two Summer League Games In A Sad Display Of The Load Management League

I'm at a crossroads with this. On one hand, props to Victor to leaving Vegas while he's ahead, something that is a lot easier said than done. On the other, he had one good game and one absolutely atrocious one in his first taste of American basketball and what is going to be one of the most anticipated rookie seasons ever. How do you possibly shut down a guy who in his first game ever went on a postgame press conference and said "I didn't know what I was doing out there":

Obviously summer league means nothing in the grand scheme of things, but load management in summer league with a rookie is crazy. Kawhi load management really killed the league I love. You think LeBron would have taken the rest of the summer off his rookie year? He didn't, look at him cook:

Even if you throw him out there for 10-15 minutes a game just to get some reps in, it's still better than nothing. The Spurs aren't exactly in win-now mode, but welcome to the load management league Wemby. What a run he had in Vegas. Two games played and one altercation with one of the most famous singers of all time. Britney stans get the last laugh this time I fear.
