Who is Victor Wembanyama, the Frenchman called to revolutionize the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs?

There are players who from the first moment are seen as outstanding, players who come to change established paradigms in the sport and allow the competition and level of the league to be raised.

The French Victor Wembanyama is called to be the new unicorn in the NBAAt just 19 years old, he already measures 2.21 meters, but far from impressing only because of his height, what really attracts attention are his outstanding skills on the court.

“Everyone has been a unicorn in the past few years, but he’s more like an alien. No one has seen anyone as tall, as fluid and elegant as him. LeBron James would be No. 2 in the Draft if he was the exact same age and in the same class as Victor Wembanyama.”were the words of Richard Jeffersonformer partner of Lebron James in the cleveland cavaliers.

He has been on the radar for a long time and it is not a minor issue, since the NBA itself acquired the television rights to be able to broadcast the games of the Metropolitans 92 (Victor Wembanyama’s team in France) in the United States.

Victor Wembanyama is averaging 21.6 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.1 blocks; in addition to 28.3% in shots from three, 55.3% in shots from two and an 83.7% success rate in free throws.

He comes from a family of athletes, since his father Felix was a long jumper and his mother, Elodie, was a player and now a basketball coach.
