This youngster has already shown enough potential to invite immense attention from the teams and NBA fans alike.

Netizens have even compared this young talent to the veteran star, LeBron James!
LeBron himself even applauded Wembanyama saying, “No one has ever seen anyone as tall as he is but as fluid and as graceful as he is out on the floor … He’s, for sure, a generational talent,” NBA.com reported.
Wembanyama left an incredible impression after playing 2 games in Vegas. He scored 73 points on 22-for-44 shooting, nine 3-pointers, 15 rebounds, and nine blocked shots in two exhibitions. The highlight of the game was when Victor Wembanyama blocked a shot, sprinted to the other end of the court, jumped from just inside the foul line, caught an alley-oop pass with one hand, and dunked the ball. The entire sequence lasted eight seconds, leaving everyone in awe.
