The wonder boy who has been drawing praise from basketball professionals around the world and especially from the player Lebron James, is known as Victor Wembanyama. The star, who is only 2.20m tall, currently plays for Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans 92 in France and caught the attention of American coaches when he was in the United States for a friendly against a team of prodigies.
During the match, Wembanyama scored 37 points, two balls from three and five blocks in the first game, in addition to beautiful defenses, strong points, attacks and blocks. Which led to him being considered to be No. 1 in the 2023 NBA Draft, which usually takes place in April.
Upon seeing the player’s performance, Lebron James stated in an interview that “no one has ever seen someone tall like him play so fluidly and gracefully. He is certainly a talent of the generation”, and that he can be considered a unicorn – a term used to refer to a great player who has technique and not just physical strength.
