Is Victor Wembanyama the greatest NBA Draft prospect of all time? He still has to prove himself in the “big leagues,” but if two games in Henderson, Nevada against G-League’s Ignite team are any indication, he’ll be a superstar.
If there’s one potential client that could go up against Wembanyama, it would be Scoot Henderson, the player many believe will be second overall in the draft after the French sensation. The problem for Henderson G-League Ignite was that he, unfortunately, suffered a knee injury early in the game, and that meant the stage was completely set up for Wembanyama to show one man.
The 7-foot-4-year-old 18-year-old center back scored 36 points, 11 rebounds, 4 blocks and 4 assists as his Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans 92 beat Ignite, 112-106.
It was the second 30-plus performance that Wembanyama beat Ignite in a two-game series of scenarios on American soil. Earlier in the week, he had 37 points with 5 saves against the G-League leaders.
Wembanyama played so well on the “US Tour” that LeBron James went so far as to call him an alien, and he meant well.
