Too big, too strong, too gifted, too everything. Grandiose in Boulogne-Levallois’ victory over G-League Ignite, Victor Wembanyama delivered a new world-class score. Two days after his 37-point card, the Frenchman cemented his status as an absolute nugget by displaying his talent in the eyes of the world. And the United States wants more.
He was expected, he answered present. Despite a reinforced defense of the Ignite on him, Victor Wembanyama released an incredible performance this Thursday evening, one more. His stat line? 36 points at 11/24 shooting, 11 rebounds, 4 blocks, 4 assists, and a +/- of +24.
Victor Wembanyama still delights and releases mind-blowing moves
Scoot Henderson quickly injured following contact with Wembanyama, and forced to leave his partners, all the spotlights were on the Frenchman. Beyond its impact and the stats mentioned, nothing beats images of this insolent domination. Alley-oop, ultra-difficult shots and the like: enjoy yourself below.
A WALKING HIGHLIGHT REAL!!🤯

Victor Wembanyama makes it look easy with this absurd running pullup 3 falling out of bounds from the corner demonstrating his exceptional footwork and body control. We’ve never seen anything remotely close to this before from a player this size. pic.twitter.com/0pgRWuVSUj

VIctor Wembanyama makes it look easy as he scores this absurd three-point shot on the move as he drops into touch. This shot demonstrates his footwork and exceptional body control. We’ve never seen a player that size even come close to what he does.
Do you want more ? So let’s go. How about a good yard pull-up behind the three-point line, at the Stephen Curry ? Bank. And a poster dunk to conclude? Come on, sold.

For the road, know that it was Wembanyama, again, who made the interception that sealed the meeting in the last seconds…
If collectively the Mets have won one game and lost another, for a record of 50%, this American mini-tour will have been a colossal success for Victor Wembanyama at the individual level. His name is now on everyone’s lips in the United States, with one certainty: it is a potential future giant who will land in the NBA next spring. The best is yet to come.
