In this year's Basketball World Cup, the French men's basketball team, the runner-up of the Tokyo Olympics and the third runner-up of the past two World Cups, performed poorly, missing the round of 16 in the group stage and could only enter the 17-32 qualifying round.

However, since the French men's basketball team has made it directly to the Paris Olympics as the host, they still have a chance to redeem themselves at next year's home Olympics. Munbanyama said in an interview: "Success at the Olympics will be a great story and we will not have other goals than a gold medal. Of course, I will be at the Olympics. ”

"I watched the World Cup and the results were very disappointing. I'm not worried though. I can't judge because I'm not in the team and it depends on the performance of the top players. I don't think that will change the determination that next year at the Paris Olympics, we need to do something big. Vembanyama added.

Venbanyama was selected as the NBA's rookie this summer, and he made the decision to withdraw from the basketball World Cup after consulting with his closest advisers, the medical team and several members of the French national team's leadership. Vembanyama said at the time: "I hope people will understand, and I am also frustrated. The French men's basketball team is still my focus. I want to win as many titles as possible, but I think it's a necessary sacrifice. ”

In November 2022, Venbanyama made his debut in the FIBA World Cup European Cup qualifiers, playing four games for France, averaging 19.0 points, 8.3 rebounds and 22.5 efficiency points, which is also expected to lead the team to compete for Olympic gold next year with Gobert and Fournier.
