Thick Brush Stroke

The theme of the new NBA season

Meeting Victor Wembanyama was one of Chris Paul's preseason basketball activities.  

Now 38 years old, Paul is on his way to the Hall of Fame. With the Warriors, he has a shot for a title this season.  

No NBA game has ever been played by the 19-year-old Wembanyama. His 30 game winning streak with the Spurs this year would be considered a miracle.  

But when they're side by side, it's easy to see how the league has evolved through the years. Following the game, they consented to a photo session.  

Wembanyama stands at a height of 7 feet for his height. Although six feet is an aspirational height, that is what Paul is labeled as.  

You'd think they'd reposition the photo such that it doesn't appear like "bring your kid to work" day.   

But no. It was Paul who was left hanging. He was shown in a wide angle picture, perched precariously on his toes as he strained to get an extra inch or two.   

The National Basketball Association works like this: you're on top of the world one second, and the next thing you know, you're just a marketing prop.
