We’re a little over a year away from seeing Victor Wembanyama play in the NBA and time can’t pass fast enough for that. The young Frenchman is a generational talent and fans were sweating at the prospect of seeing him on an NBA court.
He stated last month that the two NBA stars his game closely resembles are Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant, which is a fair guess. If he gets anywhere near as good as those two, then he would have justified all the hype that’s coming his way.
NBA fans react to Victor Wembanyama’s latest Highlight Reel
Wembanyama couldn’t represent France at EuroBasket 2022 as he recovered from an injury and he may miss out on a gold medal as they made it to the final. However, he is now healthy and recently a video of him dominating the pitch went viral.
NBA fans were in awe as they reacted to his latest highlight role.
“The tanking jobs we’re going to see in the league will be generational and shameless”
“That shaking motion…”
“The half spin fadeaway tells me all I need to know – the kid is going to be a problem.”
“There’s about 26 NBA teams that would be perfectly justified in giving up their entire roster for the 14 percent chance of this guy.”
“Defining Winning the Genetic Lottery”
“S**t he can basically do whatever he wants on the pitch”
“This man has the potential to be the best basketball player of all time”
“He’ll be like Kareem, Hakeem or Wilt 🔥”
“this looks so fake lol can’t believe there is a human like this”
“It became known, fam is a 🐐”
“OKC trades all their first all-rounders for him”
“If he gets that Giannis build, it’s over”
“I swear he’s the real-life version of a character created in NBA Live. Measurable and all…”
“Dear Lord, how do you stop this?”
“Wow. With that length, athleticism, grips and shooting…he’s going to be a NIGHTMARE!”
“I wish the cops would tank up this year. He’s worth the tank”
“He likes Rudy Gobert with his guard skills. Crazy.”
“One Man Wreck Crew”
“The man is about to kill the league lol”
The talent is clearly there to become one of the all-time greats, but he still needs to step up a bit when he gets into the league. As one fan points out, if he has a physical transformation like Giannis had after joining the league, it spells trouble for everyone else.
A few teams will be incredibly lucky to sign him next year and we can only hope they help him develop properly. He could be the biggest shot at entering the league since LeBron James, and we hope he’ll continue to dominate the court for a long time to come.
