Wemby Reportedly Declined Drake’s Offer to Come Onstage Since His Teammates Couldn’t Join

Victor Wembanyama is a true class act. 

The San Antonio Spurs power forward has established himself as a strong contender for Rookie of the Year, as he ended the 2023-24 season with an average of 21.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 3.9 assists. His performance on the court has also led to lucrative endorsement deals with brands like Nike, Fanatics, Barcode, and Louis Vuitton. But despite his steady stream of W’s throughout the past year, the French-born athlete has maintained an admirable level of humility and loyalty to his teammates—so much so that he reportedly declined Drake’s invitation to join him onstage.

Former NBA player JJ Redick shared the information during a recent appearance on the 7PM in Brooklyn podcast hosted by NBA legend Carmelo Anthony and comedian The Kid Mero. At around the 39:40-minute mark, Redick discussed Wemby’s rookie season and praised his ability to embrace all the “hype” without inflating his ego. He underscored his position with an anecdote he heard in 2023, shortly after Wemby and his Spurs teammates attended an It’s All a Blur tour stop in Texas.

“There was a Drake concert in Austin and [Wembanyama] got asked to come up onstage ’cause Drake was doing that with a bunch of NBA guys this offseason,” Redick recalled. “And Wemby was like, ‘Can my teammates come up onstage with me? ‘Cause they are going to be at the concert with me.’ And Drake’s camp was like, ‘No.’ And [Wemby’s] like, ‘Then I don’t want to do it.’ What 19-year-old kid doesn’t want to go up onstage with Drake?”
