Nba Draft: Spurs Feel Confident With Pick
NEW YORK — Victor Wembanyama was the presumed No. 1 decision for months, a rarity in the NBA Draft process, which is rife with uncertainty.
However, as the clock above the stage neared zero, he began to experience palpitations.
Wembanyama has more height and anticipation than the majority of No. 1 choices. In his final season in the French division, he led all players in scoring.
Now he moves to the NBA, possibly as the greatest prospect since LeBron James graduated from high school in 2003.
Throughout the draft process, Wembanyama was the center of attention and sat in the midst of the green room — for the brief time he was there, at least.
The Portland Trail Blazers selected Scoot Henderson of the G League Ignite, whose bling-filled blazer stood in stark contrast to Wembanyama's consistent green attire.
