There is a player who is evaluated as the best talent since LeBron James (LA Lakers).
Victor Wembanyama (19). Having a father from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a mother from France, he currently plays in the French professional league and plans to challenge for the NBA draft in June. The NBA’s official website is attracting a lot of attention to the extent that it broadcasts all the games of his team, Metropolitans 92. ESPN of the United States evaluated him as “the greatest prospect in NBA history,” and the British Guardian praised him as “a prodigy that comes once in a thousand years.”
Wembanyama, who is 221cm tall, has mobility, dribbling and shooting skills. He inherited his athletic talent from his father, a track and field long jumper, and his mother, a basketball player. The Guardian said, “The wingspan is 8 feet (about 244 cm), but he is a player who can shoot like a point guard.” The New York Times said, “Watching Wembanyama play basketball is surreal. His height and wingspan often make him look like he has two bodies.” “My goal is to be something you’ve never seen before,” says Wembanyama. I want to do everything differently and originally, including sports.” 카지노사이트
Wembanyama scored a total of 73 points while playing two games against Ignite of the G League (NBA lower league) in Las Vegas last October. 200 people, including scouts and executives from each NBA club, attended the event, including active players such as LeBron James (LA Lakers) and Chris Paul (Phoenix Suns). James said, “Wembanyama is more like an alien. I’ve never seen a player so tall and so smooth. He definitely deserves to be called the talent of the century.”
Wembanyama was born in the western suburbs of Paris, France. As a child, he played soccer goalkeeper and once took up judo, but eventually chose basketball against his mother’s wishes. When he was 11 years old, he was already 180 cm tall, so people around him mistook him for a coach. Wem Banyama made his professional debut in the 2019-2020 season when he was 15 years old, and also participated in the Euro Cup, a European basketball club competition. In the 2022-2023 season, he played an average of 32.2 minutes in 21 games, recording 22.2 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 3.1 blocked shots. 1st overall in all three categories.
The NBA draft picks are held in May. “It doesn’t matter how many times you get drafted, it’s important to build your best career after that,” said Wembanyama. He said, “I cannot accept that he is not number one as an athlete.”
