With the NBA Draft Lottery just hours away, most of the league is already under Victor Vembanyama’s watch.

The French Big Man is widely regarded as the best prospect in NBA draft history, even ahead of LeBron James.

The experts are so high on him at the moment that an unnamed front office member told NBA insider Sean Hykin that every single team in the league would pick him No. 1 even if he suffers multiple season-ending injuries like Joel Embiid, and They signed him out in his second contract despite not seeing much of him play.

That’s a lot of praise, especially considering that the projected No. 2 pick, Scooter Henderson, is also earning a generational player at the point guard position.

Vembanyama has turned heads left and right over the years.

He has a phenomenal combination of size, length, handle, shooting and shot-blocking.

Plus, they’ve already demonstrated their prowess in the US by dominating the G-League Ignite in a couple of exhibition games, and the league has actually started broadcasting its games on the League Pass app.

Obviously, there will always be some concerns about the durability, health and ability to withstand the physicality of stronger players in the colour, but Vembanayama has had no history of injuries in his short career.

He is the ultimate unicorn and something this league has never seen, and he has yet to scratch the surface of his potential.

NBA fans will hope it doesn’t reach him, but the fact that everyone will take him even when he’s injured speaks to his sky ceiling.
