16 years old. 2.18 meters. Maddening capacities. Victor Wembanyama is still far from the NBA but the young talent of JSF Nanterre is already followed with attention by scouts around the world. And this for years. The experts ofESPN describe him as the “best prospect in the world”. Because of its size but also its agility and skill. So many elements that were brought to light during a friendly 2 vs 2 against Rudy Gobert and Vincent Poirier with his teammate Maxime Raynaud. The opportunity to test oneself in front of players from the biggest league in the world and among the best French in his position. And it caused a sensation in two actions.

Of course it’s just a video. Just two isolated passages of a 2 vs 2 where nobody really gives their all. But that’s enough to make the buzz. Above all, that is enough to show some obvious qualities in Victor Wembanyama. The potential is certain. The dribble, the address, the size. The leader of the France U16 team, silver medalist at Eurobasket 2019, has a very promising future.
Ah yes, for the record: Gobert and Poirier largely dominated this 2 vs 2 afterwards. Let us give them back what is theirs all the same.
