The 2023 NBA Draft is 8 months away, but even before the start of this season it was widely expected that Victor Wembanyama will be the number one pick.
A couple of exhibition games against the G League Ignite solidified his status as the best player to be drafted. His compatriot Rudy Gobert was asked recently about the 18-year-old prodigy.
“He’s unique, something the world has never seen,” Gobert said, per Eric Walden. “He’s taller than me, longer than me. He can space the floor, he can pass. But (he) also wants to play defense. … And he just loves to win.”
