Congolese Descent, Wembanyama Set for First Taste of NBA Life

  • 0

The Basketball French player of Congolese descent, Victor Wembanyama is set for his first taste of NBA life as he takes part in 2 exhibition games against the G League Ignite this week.

To get a sense of how much of a prodigy he is, it’s worth mentioning that about every prognosticator anoints him as the top pick in the 2023 NBA draft.

This was disclosed on the NBA social media platform.

In an interview with AP, The Basketball sensational player, Wembanyama said, “I was built for this, I guess. All that happens to me I expect it for myself. It’s just a checklist of expectations.

“There are so many players I respect but my goal is to be like something that you’ve never seen. That’s why I’m not a big fan of comparisons.

“Regardless of what position you get picked in the draft, I think the most important is to have the best career afterwards. But as an athlete, as a competitor, I can’t accept not being number one. I don’t like having anyone above me.”

Wembanyama’s favourite players in the NBA right now are Kevin Durant and Giannis Antetokounmpo. However, the Metropolitans 92 player has skills to focus on, in order not to compare.

The teen is endowed with technical and athletic qualities and while listed as a centre he plays all over the floor with guard skills in a big-man frame.

Before he evolves on the international basketball scene, the 7-foot-2 teen will do his best to shine Wednesday and Thursday during the exhibition games. He will challenge another top draft prospect in Ignite guard Scoot Henderson.
