16 year old prospect: Victor Wembanyama

If his tall body can hold up (which is often a challenge), he could be very interesting some day.

I get the point, but that video was made when Thon was 18. Victor shows more finesse to his game at age 16 despite being several inches taller. I don't remember Thon's high school hype or rank to compare, but Victor is widely considered an elite prospect that is starting to get Doncic like praise. He has already had success in international play in FIBA as well. Obviously there is no guarantee of development, but the ceiling is very high on this kid.

It's always off-putting to see someone so tall and long with such a thin frame. Gives off an alien-like feeling.

He's handled look smooth and polished for a 16 year old. Definitely on the scouting report.

That sounded lika a rap verse.
“Listen man, thank you Kobe for giving me my roses while I’m still here on this earth,” McGrady said. “He was, listen, I came in, I used to stay at this man’s house. I just knew how gifted he was gonna be, And he just brought the best out of me.

My thoughts as well. His legs are all over the place. He's young, so he's still growing into his body, but he just doesn't look like he's got the fluidity in his movements at this point. Improving that will be a big factor to his ultimate success.

Some people thought this kid was a CGI creation instead of being a real 17 year old
