Victor Wembanyama proved beyond any doubt that he is the top pick, nine months before the upcoming NBA draft

After the Luka Doncic draft fiasco it was evident that the NBA will be more than ready to welcome top European talent, especially when a player is a phenomenon that seems to be the true heir of Kareem Abdul Jabbar and he is armed also with a jump shot.

French prospect Victor Wembanyama completed his voyage to Las Vegas for two exhibition games with 36 points on 11-24 shooting, 11 rebounds, four assists, four blocks, and +26 in 37 minutes in Metropolitans 92’s 112-106 win over G-League Ignite.

He had 37 points, seven threes, four rebounds, and five blocks in Tuesday’s loss to G-League Ignite.

While NBA scouts were already aware of what he can do, even NBA stars like LeBron James took notice, and NBA commissioner Adam Silver during his press conference for the NBA exhibition in Abu Dabhi admitted that he hopes NBA teams will not tank to get him.

Of course, that will not be the case and Wembanyama returns to France triumphant, after proving that he is the future of the NBA.
