There is no doubt that the entire NBA has its eyes firmly set on upcoming draft prospect Victor Wembanyama.
The young French star will be part of the upcoming draft and everyone knows he will be the number one overall pick.
Not since LeBron James has any player generated as much buzz and excitement as Wembanyama.
ESPN’s measurables on Victor Wembanyama:
Height w/o shoes: 7’4”
Height with shoes: 7’5”

It’s not just because he’s a big player but also because he’s so highly skilled.
However, his size must be seen to be believed.
With shoes on, Wembanyama is a shocking 7-foot-5 with an enormous eight-foot wingspan.
Wembanyama is still the biggest player in the room even when standing side-by-side with Rudy Gobert of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
His size is one thing but the Wembanyama doesn’t play like a typical big man.
He moves and passes and shoots like someone much smaller than him.
There have been comparisons to players like Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant when talking about Wembanyama.
It’s not often that we see a man of this size move with such efficient and deft footwork.
He is regularly putting up close to 30 points, nearly 20 rebounds, and several blocks a game.
It is clear that Wembanyama could completely transform the fate and future of any team in the NBA.
We don’t know which franchise will land the coveted first overall pick in the 2023 draft.
But we do know that whoever is so lucky will definitely leap at the chance to sign Wembanyama.
By doing so, they will get a draft pick who is not only massive but massively talented too.NEXT: Former NBA Player Has Announced The Release Of A New Book
