Victor Wembanyama has received praise from all over. Now one of the biggest stars in the NBA has sung his praises.
The future No. 1 overall pick has produced some noteworthy juice already. He dazzled many in a game against another player who will be picked early in the upcoming NBA Draft. He received praise from LeBron James himself. That praise has now extended even further.
It’s now Giannis Antetokounmpo’s turn. Giannis spoke highly of Wembanyama to teammate Serge Ibaka on Ibaka’s How Hungry Are You? show earlier in the week.
Giannis said via Ballislife.com’s Twitter, “Get ready my friend…I’ve never seen this before in my life. I saw him up close. He’s taller than Rudy Robert. He can block shots like Rudy but shot like KD. Bro. Bro. Crazy. Crazy.”

At this point, the praise has been earned. Wembanyama has wowed everyone lately, including the Milwaukee Bucks star. Wembanyama had people saying the “t-word” with emphasis never used before. It will be fascinating to see if he can live up to it. For now, the biggest and best basketball players in the world have made their voices heard. All seem to have become enamored with his game.
He has high expectations, but it’s perhaps true that we’ve never seen the things Wembanyama can do.
