French unicorn Victor Wembanyama is going to be a member of 2023’s NBA draft class, and people talk about him as a “generational” talent.

At 7’4″ and blessed with athleticism that belies his height, Wembanyama could turn a drifting team into a contender in his rookie season. It’s a fair call that he would improve any NBA team that drafts him, and he could surely improve any of the teams likely to finish poorly enough this season to earn a high draft pick.

Wembanyama has been at the top of the NBA radar and has wowed fans due to his unique combination of size, athleticism and skill. He can push the ball up the court seamlessly, can shoot the ball beyond three-point line and can protect the rim on the other end while towering over anyone with his 7-foot-4 height and 8-foot wingspan.

Jumping out as a can’t-miss generational talent, many have been lining Wembanyama up to the likes of LeBron James, who entered the league straight out of high school and was arguably the most hyped prospect of all-time.

Yesterday, Wemby once again reminded everyone why he is one of the most-hyped prospects of all-time. During the Metropolitans 92’s game against A.S. Monaco, Wembanyama followed up his own missed step-back three, with a huge putback dunk.



Upon seeing a seven-footer putback dunk his own missed three-pointer, NBA Twitter reacted accordingly and couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
