« Everyone is fighting for Wembanyama, but this team already has it for free »

In the minds of many observers, Victor Wembanyama is a player unique in the history of the Draft, and it could even revolutionize the game in the NBA. But for some fans, this image of the French pivot would be wrong, since another talent currently has similar qualities.

For several months, Victor Wembanyama has been presented as a unique player, a profile never seen in the history of the Draft and the NBA as a whole. It’s no coincidence that all of today’s greatest players showered him with praise after his time in Las Vegas with the Metropolitans. For LeBron James, the young French pivot would even be an “Alien” !

But is this really the case, or is Wemby benefiting from an absolutely exceptional media exposure which accentuates this impression? When looking at Magic games this season, the second option is perhaps the most believable. Because if Bol Bol does not have the level of the French international, he also succeeds in some breathtaking actions thanks to his size and his extraordinary mobility.

Bol Bol, the Victor Wembanyama 1.0?!

Bol Bol, 2m18, is in the process of revealing himself with the Magic after a complicated debut in Denver. Very little used until then, the strong winger now spends 25 minutes on the pitch every evening, and he proves that he has the level to evolve in the NBA. After his performance with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 blocks against the Sixers on Friday, he also received the most beautiful comparison. For Internet users, it is the first version of Victor Wembanyama:

Everyone is fighting for Wembanyama, but the Magic already have it for free

Victor is already in the NBA 🤫

Traded for a second round draft pick last season, Bol Bol received « only » $2 million this year, which is relatively little for a player who averages 13 points, 8 rebounds and 2 blocks. If he continues on this rhythm, his next contract should be much more interesting.
