NBA stars salute Victor Wembanyama ROY win

In order to get the best images from all six camera angles, the crew in the Frost Bank Center pits near the loading docks rehearsed the scene with an actress and a 6-foot-3 stand-in, who acted out the rookie's towering height.   

The clock was ticking down until Wembanyama's arrival.  

Using the same creative team behind the 2019 ad for "Dwyane Wade’s Last Swap," Wembanyama’s partner Fanatics produced the documentary short   

The Exhibit: Wemby’s Rookie of the Year Surprise" with appearances by other NBA greats and past recipients of the honor.  

A number of NBA greats, including Shaquille O'Neal, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, David Robinson,   

Allen Iverson, Vince Carter, Pau Gasol, Chris Paul, Jason Kidd, and Grant Hill, are featured in the Wembanyama video.  

Wembanyama showed up to the set believing he was at the "Origins of Greatness"  

touring exhibit put on by Fanatics, which has autographed jerseys, trading cards, and other relics from the game's greatest players.
