7-foot-4 Victor Wimpanyama, potentially the hottest NBA player since LeBron James, plays on TV tonight: How to watch


Cleveland, Ohio – The 2023 NBA Draft features a star at the top of the class unlike any star who might ever enter the league. The 7-foot-4, 7-foot-4 Victor Wimpanyama of France is considered the best in the draft.

He has been considered by many drafters and NBA staff as the best and most exciting player to join the NBA since LeBron James returned in 2003. On Tuesday night, fans will have a chance to watch him live as the 92nd Levallois Metropolitans play. A team from Paris will compete for the G-League Ignite, another title for the 2023 Probabilistic Project at Scoot Henderson, in Henderson, Nevada. The game begins at 10 PM EST and will be on ESPN2.

They will play a second time Thursday at 3 p.m. ET, also on ESPN2.

So what makes Wimpanyama the favorite to be the first pick in the 2023 NBA Draft?

Consider the fact that it is 7 feet 4 feet tall and has a wingspan of nearly 8 feet. But not only is he incredibly tall and skinny, he’s also more mobile and a better soccer player than players of his size should be.

Last season, he played 16 games in Betclic Elite, France’s premier basketball league, as the 17-year-old played against seasoned pros and averaged 9.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 18.4 minutes. He shot 47.3% from the ground and 26% from 3 point range.

He also played in 13 Euroleague games last season, averaging 6.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in 17.5 minutes.

Three games this season, Wimpanyama is averaging 17.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 blocks in 27.3 minutes. He shoots 44.9% from the ground and 33.3% from 3 averaging four attempts per game.

Henderson, meanwhile, is an NBA standout in his own right. The 6-foot-2 goalkeeper came to G-League Ignite last year as a high school rookie and averaged 14.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 11 games. He also appeared on the Rising Stars Challenge at All-Star Weekend in Cleveland in February and earned two points, two rebounds, two assists, and two steals.
