The NBA freaks out: Wembanyama and Henderson remember Magic and Bird

Sometimes a mere exhibition match turns into a historic day and that changes everything. And that has happened between Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson, two players who are called to mark an era and who are the big favorites to lead the next draft. The meeting has had titanic, epic overtones and for many it has even reminded Magic Johnson and Larry Bird in the 1979 NCAA final. Big words for the two stars of the future and a confrontation that has left in the background, in the world of Twitter and journalism, the returns of Zion Williamson and company. Almost nothing.

Wembanyama is a center of 2.20, who has a wingspan of 2.31, weighs 94 kilos (yes, it seems incredible) and plays for the Metropolitans 92 in Paris. Henderson, for his part, is an explosive point guard who is (also) 18 years old and 1.88 meters tall and plays for the G League project Ignite.. Both came together in a spectacular meeting, exhibition, in Las Vegas, before a large audience, eager to know the result. And they left no one indifferent with an explosion of spectacular talent that has gone around the world.

Ignite took the victory (122-115) and Henderson put on a spectacular performance, although individually his rival highlighted something else: 37 points with a tremendous 7 of 11 triples, 4 rebounds and 5 blocks for Wembanyama, something simply spectacular. Henderson, meanwhile, reached a not inconsiderable 28 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists. The plays have been repeated a lot on social networks and the world of the NBA is open-mouthed, impatient to see the future that awaits him. One that promises absolutely great.
