With the 2023-24 NBA season conclusion, it's time to start reviewing everything that the campaign left us. In this case, we're going to take a deep dive into the players who atracted the most audience on NBA social. Victor Wembanyama emerged as a force on social media given his size and unseen skills, but what about the experienced guys? Can they compete with the newcomers? Let's take a look.
After regular season Nยฐ21 ended for LeBron James one might think that the King doesn't draw that much attention on social media given his age. But actually, Lebron continues to lead the ranking. He's sitting on top of the rank, far from the second place, who also is one of the old guys.
LeBron closed yesterday another regular season, and he did it on a high note one more time with a fantastic 28 points, 17 assists and 11 rebounds triple-double. He turned 39 in December and he's still one of the most dominating players in the league, just insane. It's no secret the amount of effort and money that the King puts on his conditioning, but the results are out there to be seen. Watching his highlights is a must, from a dunk to a no-look pass, LeBron continues to be a "must see".
The second place is occupied by none other than Stephen Curry. Steph, at 36 years old, is the other prove that age is just a number. From his in-game highlights to the absurd trick shots while warming up, the Chef continues to be high quality entertainment.
The top three closes with Victor Wembanyama. The San Antonio Spurs first pick of the 2023-24 NBA Draft has surpassed all expectations and began immediatly to be one of the most sought-after players on social media. Wemby had an amazing season and he deserves all the attention he's getting from the fans through social media.
The Dallas Mavericks have two players on the top five: Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. Both of them are a pleasure to watch, they have fun and they're creative, super skilled players. There's always a new move or a new shot to watch.
