The NBA world was treated to quite a show on Tuesday night when the top two prospects in the upcoming 2023 NBA Draft faced off in a prime-time showdown as 7-foot-4 Victor Wembanyama and his French club Metropolitans 92 took on explosive guard Scoot Henderson and G League Ignite.

While both prospects showcased their talent, Wembanyama stood out from everyone else on the court. The French do-it-all player showcased a long, 7-foot-4 frame as well as the skillset and athleticism of an elite guard.

During the game, Wembanyama scored a game-high 37 points, shooting 11-of-20 from the field and an eye-popping 7-of-11 from three-point range. He also used his length to block five shots in the contest. As NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports, the performance had one NBA GM speculating that a lot of teams will be tanking this season.

“Victor distorts basketball reality,” one GM told ESPN on Wednesday. “The tank/trade market will really shift after that showing. It feels like last night will start a race to the bottom like we’ve never seen.”

The shocking comments caught the attention of the NBA world.

While a lot of teams will likely try to tank and land that coveted No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, only one team can ultimately land the generational prospect. But whoever lands him is going to get one talented and extremely confident player.
