With their duel at the top, Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson achieved the feat of boosting their already enormous rating a little more. From now on, we are determined to obtain one of the two nuggets by all means, judging by the delirious reactions of the fans on the social networks.
We expected a lot from this meeting between Boulogne-Levallois and the G League Team Ignite, and the players involved clearly did not disappoint us. If the Americans won (122-115, summary here), sensation Victor Wembanyama was absolutely untenable between finishing with 37 points, 5 blocks and an incredible outside address (7/11). Suffice to say that he has thus reinforced his status as a potential first pick… The battle for him will be tough, which is why Bleacher Report launched the following debate on Twitter:

What would you be willing to give in exchange for having Victor Wembanyama or Scoot Henderson in your team?
Fans conquered after the Wembanyama show
Given the show delivered by the two men in question (Henderson meanwhile signed 28 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists), it was obvious that the fans were going to react in a completely inflamed way to this thorny question. Especially since some franchises should actually do everything to get their hands on them… The answers were therefore diverse and varied, some not going overboard to explain that they wanted them at all costs:

As a wizards fan. My entire team. We get off everyone bring in draft picks, young assets and let one of these two lead that team. Aim @TedLeonsis is more focused on being a play-in team and hockey then giving us any kind of feesable direction

As a Wizards fan, I’m trading my entire team. We get rid of everyone to get draft picks, young assets and let one of them lead this team. But Ted Leonsis is more interested in being a play-in team than giving us some semblance of direction.

Luka Doncic will be sitting on the bench all season 2022-23
Ultra-talented each, Victor Wembanyama and Scoot Henderson are tlogically particularly coveted by NBA teams as their fanbases. Anyone who gets them in the draft would have done an XXL operation, which could change the course of a franchise’s history.
