Wenyen Gabriel had a career night in the G-League

IG: WenyenGabriel


Last night, Wenyen Gabriel turned in his best game as a pro yet. Wenyen had a career-high 28 points, 18 rebounds, and four blocks in the Stockton Kings’ win over the Texas Legends.

Wenyen was 13-20 from the floor and 2-3 from three with a plus/minus of 19. Through nine games with Stockton, Sacramento’s G-League affiliate, he’s averaging 12.2 points and 8.7 rebounds. This dunk was particularly nasty:

Complete highlights below:

You go, Wenyen.

    I know he’s doing well but it’s aggravating these kids leave college for the g league. We could have really used him this year. But we say that every year about a player. Congrats to him though.

    Nice to see him FINALLY play free and with loads of confidence! Looks like he has put on a lot of muscle too as he is finishing much stronger than I’ve seen in the past. I love Cal, but I do not like how intimidating he can be to players. It’s really hard to play free and loose when you are afraid to make a mistake…bc you know if you do then Cal will chew your ass and yank you out quick. It just kills the player’s confidence. Look at Derek Willis, Wenyen, Skal, Sasha, and now Richards…never reached their full potential under Cal. Not all players react to screaming the entire game

      I agree with you and disagree. Not at all respond well is true. But don’t they know that is how he coaches coming in? Does he suddenly change year to year? No.

      Wenyen and Skal were/are late bloomers, same with Nick Richards. They didn’t grow up playing basketball and were a bit behind in some skill areas, but are capable of catching up. Willis and SKJ simply didn’t want to put in the work. Willis admitted to this during his senior year. Not putting in the work is on them, not Cal.

    John Stockton Jr. dropped crazy numbers in the G-League after being a walkon at Gonzaga, guess Mark Few just didn’t let him reach his potential either. Definitely doesn’t say anything about how garbage the G-league is.
