The hype surrounding Victor Wembanyama is at an all-time high after the 2023 NBA Draft, where the French sensation was selected by the San Antonio Spurs as the No.1 overall pick.

Wembanyama is unquestionably the most unique player in this year’s draft class. He stands at 7-foot-4, but he can run the open floor, dribble through defenses and splash threes off the dribble like he’s a foot smaller than he is.

There’s little question that Wembanyama can at least be helpful to an NBA team right away. Appearing now on “First Things First”, NBA analyst Chris Broussard shared his honest thoughts on the projected first overall pick, exploring his floor and ceiling in the NBA.


“The floor is like Greg Oden. He’s injured and is not able to play… If he’s healthy, it’s possible that he could be a Shawn Bradley, just not that good. But I don’t see that.

The ceiling, there is none. Ceiling is GOAT. Is it possible? Yes. He can handle the basketball, he shoots it okay… he can defend. He’s 19-years-old, was the MVP of the French league and I know that might not be the top-level European league. But he’s still playing against grown men and dominated offensively, led the league in scoring and defensively.

He’s going to a great organization where he’s got a great coach, they know how to handle not only stars but international stars. I’m not saying that I think he’s going to be the GOAT. I’m just saying that’s the ceiling. He’s better than Luka, Giannis, and Jokic were at this stage, and look at how great they became.”
