For the last few days, everyone in the NBA has been talking about Victor Wembanyama.
The young French basketball player has been called everything from a “unicorn” to an “alien” to the most exciting draft prospect the league has seen in years.
Some people are saying that he could literally transform the league in many ways, much like LeBron James did when he entered the NBA 20 years ago.
The value of Wembanyama is obvious: he could join just about any team and add a player who can guard, block, and shoot in ways that a man his size usually can’t.
REPORT: An NBA executive says drafting Victor Wembanyama may add as much as $500M to the value of that franchise.

However, he will also add financial benefits too.
It is estimated that any team that drafts Wembanyama may add as much as $500 million to its value.
This young man is already a superstar and he hasn’t even played a single NBA game.
Is this all hype or is he the real deal?
Victory With Victor
We don’t know which team will be lucky enough to get the number one draft pick in next year’s draft.
But unless they make the most shocking choice in the history of the league, they will select Wembanyama.
He brings it all and really is a bonafide monster on the court.
He is being hyped up, there is no doubt about that, but he truly is a fantastic young basketball player who still has room to grow.
Plus, he is fun to watch on the court so he is bound to become a fan favorite as well.
All of this will work wonders for the team that lands him – they will have a new All-Star and also someone who gets the crowd on their feet.
