In his first game within the American spoil, Victor Wembanyama shocked the world with the intangibles and once in a generation skill set he has.
Due to his sky high potential as a generational talent, an anonymous general manager believes that the tanking this season to gain the best chance to draft Wembanyama next draft will be phenomenal.
“Victor distorts basketball reality,” the GM told Adrian Wojnarowski and Jonathan Givony of ESPN. “The tank/trade market will really shift after that showing. It feels like last night will start a race to the bottom like we’ve never seen.”
Another executive noted that the seven-foot-four giant is an exceptional talent and is set to be the most hyped player since LeBron James in 2003.
“He’s a 7-foot-4 (Kevin) Durant who blocks shots — and he’s not even close to what he’s going to be. He will be the most hyped player since LeBron (James),” the GM told ESPN.
Wembanyama didn’t fail to impress during his Metropolitans’ 92 exhibition match against the G League Ignite. The young center flirted with 37 markers on a losing effort, but he delivered jaw-dropping skills that are rare for a basketball big man. He flushed seven three-pointers outside and blocked five shots from the opponents. He also made occasional plays taking isolation shots and mid-range jumpers off post-ups.
