The 2023 NBA Draft features an all-time great prospect, Victor Wembanyama.

Every once in a while, a young prospect will take the basketball world by storm and impress scouts and fans alike with their elite talent and sheer dominance on the court. Sometimes, these players are so good that they are given the label “generational,” meaning their talent is so great that a player of their caliber only comes around once every generation.

Players like this don’t come around very often, but the 2023 NBA Draft features a prospect who fits this mold and has been so dominant over the last couple of years that analysts have begun calling him one of the best prospects the NBA has ever seen. That player is none other than Victor Wembanyama.

Wembanyama has received a ton of praise over the last couple of years, and it’s fair to wonder whether the hype is actually warranted. The simple answer is yes. He truly is that good.

Let’s take a deep dive into his game and see what makes him a generational prospect and why he has a chance to be the best player in the NBA someday.
