In the NBA’s vibrant scene, where style often dances hand in hand with skill, San Antonio Spurs’ superstar rookie Victor Wembanyama has taken the fashion game up a notch. Stepping into Monday’s game against the Toronto Raptors, Wembanyama’s all-black getup, topped with a face mask and sunglasses, sparked immediate Kanye West vibes among fans and onlookers alike.

Standing tall at 7-foot-4, Wemby is not only making an impact with his incredible agility and stature on the court but also turning heads off it with his distinctive style picks. He was also seen dressed up as Slenderman earlier on Halloween last year.

Notching his second triple-double, including 27 points, 14 rebounds and a career-best 10 blocks, the rookie swiftly redirected the spotlight from his outfit to his undeniable skill on the court.
