Still upset by the 71 points recently scored by Donovan Mitchell, NBA fans are now wondering who will be able to repeat such a feat. For some of them, and not the least, the lucky winner would be Victor Wembanyama!
The percentage of chances that he achieves such a performance was already minimal. It is logically even more so concerning a possible bis repetita this Wednesday. Back on the floor after his 71-point card, Donovan Mitchell will have a hard time reaching these historic spheres again against the Suns. Internet users are therefore already wondering who will be able to do this in the future:

Predict it now: Who will make the next 70-point game?
Wembanyama successor to Mitchell and the greatest?
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Devin Booker, Stephen Curry, Luka Doncic, Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid, Damian Lillard and so many other players seem capable of reaching that crazy 70 point mark one day too. However, they could all be overtaken… by one of their future counterparts, in the person of Victor Wembanyama. And it is the Americans themselves who imagine it!

Don’t go thinking that this honoring of the French prodigy turned out to be isolated. Several Twittos have indeed thought of Wemby when they discovered this debate, including a certain Brandon Jennings, himself the author of 55 points during his rookie season, and who included him in his long list of candidates:
Luka, Giannis, Curry, Poole, Kyrie, KD, Bron, Dame, Shai, Tatum, Tyler Herro, KLAY, Victor (rookie coming in) Scoot Henderson (rookie coming in)

Simply made up of 7 names at present, the list of players who have scored 70 points in an NBA game could soon include the name… of Victor Wembanyama. This is all the good that can be wished for the young talent of the Metropolitans!
