Victor Wembenyama calls in tank teams

NBA Analytics Network

Young players are regularly labeled as the next big thing in the sport. Players are rated as young as high school as high schools, colleges and professional NBA teams around the world try to gain as much competitive advantage over the competition as possible.

The next big basketball star seems to be Victor Wembanyama. He came into limelight in recent years looking like the kind of basketball player that can only be made into a video game.

Standing 7’3″, Wembanyama is an intimidating presence on defense with his size and height. He uses it effectively, but he’s not your average tall man. Wembanyama also possesses the skills of a perimeter player with his ball handling and 3-point shooting ability.

He hasn’t done anything to slow down the hype around him as it’s probably even reaching new levels. The first time many basketball fans in the United States watched him was this summer in an exhibition game against Overtime Elite and Scoot Henderson, another top contender in the 2023 NBA Draft class.

Wembanyama did not disappoint during those matches and showed his unique skills. He added another feather to his cap this week when he became the youngest player to ever win All-Star Game MVP in the French league. He scored 27 points to go along with 12 rebounds and four assists as his All-Star French Team defeated the All-Star World Team made up of non-French players in the French LNB.

NBA teams have spent months putting themselves in a position to stand a chance of selecting him in the upcoming draft. Refueling like never before expected as Wembanyama looks like a generational talent. However, that strategy is not something Wembanyama agrees with.

“Tanking? It’s a weird strategy.” Wembanyama said to the French website Le Parisien via Basketnews. “I think it’s unreasonable and I try not to think about it. I also heard that the NBA is considering changing a few rules for me, but that’s none of my business.”
