Victor Wembanyama: 7'5" 220 lbs 19.4 years old Metropolitans 92 (France) 21.3 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 2.2 apg, 3.2 bpg, 0.8 spg, 46.5% fg%, 30.4% 3%, 82.9% ft%.

Victor Wembanyama is a phenomenon that has been a known commodity since he was 13, Yet, he still got better and is set to be a force in the NBA from day 1. Victor is a 7’5” power forward with skills of a guard and the shot protection of an all NBA caliber rim protector. I believe the reigning NBA Defensive player of the year, Jaren Jackson JR. is a comparison for Wembanyama but Victor should be better on both ends. He can average 20 plus points and 10 plus rebounds and 2.5 plus blocks as soon as he steps foot in the NBA combining unreal ball skills, shooting and all world defense to be a potent weapon on both ends. He can get stronger and improve in many ways to get even better, but he is as NBA ready to be very good as anyone with as high of a ceiling down the road as any prospect in the last 20 years. The Spurs won the lottery and will be gifted a 3rd franchise center number 1 pick. Saying he can be David Robinson or Tim Duncan may be rich, but this guy will have as good of a chance as anyone to be special in the NBA with size, grace, fluidity and the will to improve he has shown.

Strengths: Tremendous size and coordination combination. All time level Shot blocker who can defend the perimeter. Can rim run very well. Very good shooter. Roll and pop threat. Has the ability to self create in half court on perimeter and down low and anywhere in between. Soft touch around rim. Finishes well at the basket. 71% at the basket.
Willing passer. Sees over the defense and fires. Spot up shooter with potential to shoot on move. Lob threat. Weaknesses: Has to get stronger. More turnovers than assists. Not super efficient in the post.

If Wembanyama stays healthy, he has a chance to become one of the best bigs since the game became more skill oriented. He has every capacity to be a bigger, better Anthony Davis or Jaren Jackson Jr. type. Wembanyama could be a league altering talent. The Spurs have fast tracked their rebuild and the world should be excited to see Wembanyama in the NBA, scoring inside and out and becoming one of the most talented defenders ever instantly.

He’s alright, but he suffers from a uncureable disease, he is French. How do we know he won’t throw the white flag and surrender leads? Or surrender the ball to the other team? Sorry but French people do NOT have that DAWG in them, how many good French players have there been? Only one in Tony Parker, but only because he was a good passer, which requires you to SURRENDER THE BALL, I don’t care if he is 8,5 ft and shoot 100% from three with kyrie level handles, French is French.

Tier: Generational

Player Comparisions: Kristaps Porzingis, Kevin Durant, Rudy Gobert, Bol Bol

Victor Wembanyama is one of a kind. He's widely regarded as the greatest draft prospect since LeBron James in 2003. He's 7'3" yet only about 220 lbs. He's got a frame that we've never seen. For comparison, Kristaps Porzingis is 7'3" yet he's about 240 lbs. The Frenchman is tall and lean, yet he's got the skill set of like, every single NBA player combined. He's extremely fast for his size, towering over players to block shots, yet he's a great 3-point shooter and he's got as good handles as anyone in the NBA. He's a major factor on both offense and defense, which explains why teams can't tank fast enough. We've seen multiple teams, like the Jazz and the Spurs blow up their roster for just a chance at this guy. The only real worry with him right now is that his frame will make him injury-prone, but if he can stay healthy, it seems certain that he'll go down as one of the greatest NBA players of all time.

Bio: Metropolitans 92, January 3, 2004 (19), 7’3”, 230 lb, Center/Forward



  • Defensive instincts

  • Shot Blocking

  • Shot Making

  • Handles (for size)

  • Shooting Potential


  • Shot selection can be iffy

  • Lacks strength

  • Has injury history

  • Not Steph Curry


Wembanyama is a once in a vicennial prospect. His size and length, defensive ability, combined with his off the dribble shooting potential, make him an absolute nightmare for opposing defenders. There are injury and decision making concerns, but the team that lands him will be the envy of the entire league.

Shades of: N/A

19.5 year-old 7'4 C/PF/SF. 2-Way Glass Cleaning Playmaking Shot Creator. Highly-skilled alien with an 8'0 wingspan. Victor will undoubtedly be picked by whichever team lucks into the #1 pick.

Kevin Durant, Bol Bol, Rudy Gobert, Kristaps Porzingis, Chet Holmgren, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Ceiling: Hall of Fame, The G.O.A.T.

Floor: All-Star, Skilled Bucket-Getter

Team Fit:

No team will hesitate to make Victor their franchise player if they get the opportunity to draft him. He is 7'4, but with his foot speed, length, and ability to space the floor, he could in theory be used more like a wing by a team like Detroit that may already like their rotation of bigs.

Best fits within range: San Antonio, Orlando, Portland, Detroit

I mean what can I say that hasn’t already been said about Victor Wembanyama? The dude is a really good basketball player and has so much upside. Every non playoff team will be praying to the basketball gods that they are lucky enough to get the 1st overall pick and draft Victor.

Best team fits: San Antonio Spurs, Charlotte Hornets

Victor Wembanyama is one of the most tantalizing prospects in a long time. Already, multiple teams are tanking to get just a 14% chance to draft him. They’re tanking for good reason, as Victor is a 7’5 shot blocking machine who can shoot and dribble. He’s every unicorn in the NBA’s - Poku, KP, Chet - dream. He’s the most extreme example of a unicorn ever. Unlike most unicorns, teams don’t have many concerns about him, and he will undoubtedly be drafted first overall by whatever team the ping pongs balls select. He’s one of the best prospects in a long time, and here’s what makes him so great.


  • Good shooter, can shoot off the dribble and off the catch from the outside. shot has a low starting point but that’s not a big deal

  • can create from the perimeter, has an array of finishing moves he can score with

  • super fluid with his movements, can move insanely well for his size

  • his handle’s pretty good, can make moves but doesn’t have a super tight handle. amazing handle for his size however -he’s a splendid passer for his size, showing he’s a very well rounded prospect


  • amazing shot deterring, if he doesn’t block the shot he is deterring it in some way

  • insane ground coverage, gets steals in passing lanes easily

  • generational shot blocking ability, has an 8 foot wingspan. insane timing and doesn’t need to take time to generate power for his jump.

  • can guard the perimeter decently well, he has pretty quick feet and is super mobile for his size

  • only reservations i have about his defense is the close puts can be a bit lazy and his motor isn’t super high


  • 7’4, could be taller with an 8 foot wingspan

  • super fluid, we’ve never seen someone that tall move like this before

  • isnt a beanpole but the strength leaves some to be desired. he also isn’t chet holmgren, victor’s frame isn’t terrible. it shouldn’t be a huge problem as his frame can be filled out

  • his footwork and dexterity is amazing for someone of his size and age

  • very coordinated


  • generational center, day one will be one of the best, if not the best, on his team.

  • id even say he might be an all time level guy. every decade there’s one or two guys that defines it. in order it’s mikan, russell/wilt, kareem, bird/magic, mj, duncan/kobe, and lebron. wembanyama could be the next one. he should rack up DPOYs and be one of the best defenders ever

Generic Person



Victor Wembenyama is undoubtedly the best prospect of all time in my eyes. His offensive repertoire is so extremely versatile and simply combining that with the fact that he is 7’5” is insane. We haven’t seen his type of length just move the way he moves. His dynamic perimeter game flows so fluidly which alludes to an offensive ceiling the likes of Kevin Durant. Last year his shot looked very smooth but it just wasn’t falling which caused him to not earn a lot of minutes now with his new club, Metropolitan 92, things have changed. In this new environment, he has shined as the main star and creator of the team and is actually shooting better splits on a larger volume which is most likely due to confidence and just overall improvement. His shooting stroke has been a little inconsistent but the arc looks good and the fact that he puts up a respectable percentage and looks the way he does puts away most worry. He can hit from really deep. The NBA range is legit and it’s not just from spot-ups. He loves to hit fadeaways and step-backs which is the type of bag you would expect from a player a whole foot shorter than him. His jumper is impossible to block so I don’t really care if everything isn’t 100% together yet. We have seen a much larger sample size of his otherworldly perimeter mobility which had been very assuring to those who doubted his ability to play at a high level. He moves on the perimeter like a guard and is an exceptionally gifted ball handler for any big man let alone someone of his staggering size. Opponents are often caught off guard and aren’t able to handle the combination of size and fluidity in his game. He can work around the rim very well and has displayed his ability to make very tough finishes and complete difficult post moves. He can basically outreach his man with his never-ending arms to complete challenging lays, floaters, and hooks. Victor isn’t afraid to use his dominance on that offense either, he can play like the 7’5” he is. Although skilled around the basket he is fine with just using his size to bully his opponents. He can crash down like a tidal wave on pretty much anybody. He runs down the court like a gazelle with long strides and is super efficient when getting to the rim. In transition he is unstoppable because he can pace with everyone on the run before just slamming over whoever’s in front of him. He rebounds the ball well but doesn’t do it quite as much as I would like. Despite his size, his numbers off of boards aren’t usually too crazy due to this perimeter play. When he does go for the ball he can easily get it. He has had some crazy highlight plays where he’ll miss a shot and immediately swoop in for the board and dunk. Once the ball is back into his hands nobody can poke it away. I would like to see him positioned to get rebounds more often but I understand why that isn’t currently the case. Victor is a bit of an underrated passer. Despite being ball dominant on offense he does like to share the rock and distribute when the situation calls for it. He’s very unselfish and while it’s clear he has his draft stock in mind, his first priority is winning. On the defensive side of the ball he is just unstoppable physically. Victor is rumored to have an 8’0+ wingspan which wouldn’t be surprising at all after just looking at him and his other measurements. He uses his length to swat any shot attempt in sight. Although he is very good already, if Victor can continue to improve the mental aspect of his blocking, I can see him as being a lock as a league leader in blocks. He sometimes overgoes when it comes to blocks because he has a chance to deflect on almost every shot attempt which can sometimes be a real detriment. I would also like him to be a little more controlled when deterring a shot and try to get it toward a teammate rather than just sending it out of bounds. As for perimeter defense, he is actually better than you might think. His mobility allows him to be pretty effective and just the idea of his blocking deters opponents from shooting when he’s on them. Sometimes he can look like a deer on ice but his big plodding feet help to keep him planted and from being super skittish. Something I was afraid of going into this season was how Victor would handle mentally and so far he’s really surprised me with how much grit he has. Despite news coverage around him picking up drastically since last year's draft cycle ended he has held up well and has shown that he can be very tough. On and off the court he hasn’t been too frightened of all the attention and has actually been a bit of a trash-talker (which is a good thing). He has that tenacity you would want and he understands what he needs to do to reach his ceiling. Victor has probably the highest expectations for a player going into the league since Lebron so the off the court mental aspect is a very important piece to projecting how his career might play out. The big concerning part of his physical profile is his health and durability. Even though he is young, he has already been plagued by injuries and although none of them were serious it is quite worrying. Players close to his stature have historically been derailed by their bodies breaking down and even though a lot of that has been used as unfair stereotyping like it was with Chet last year, it could be a problem. Adding a bit of weight would probably ease the minds of NBA franchises but if you were to actually look back at how big versatile players like Victor have done after adding weight they actually fare worse. The problem with adding too much bulk to a special player like him is that they often lose the touch or skill that makes them unique in the first place so finding a balance will be very important moving forward. Victor has some small concerns but is a lock for this year's number-one pick. He is definitely a generational talent and will change an entire franchise and maybe the entire league once he gets to the NBA. We haven't seen someone of his size do the things he can, and there isn’t much that can stop him on his road to greatness.
