NBA draft hopeful Wembanyama records double-double in loss
The top prospect of the 2023 NBA Draft, Victor Wembanyama, continues to capture the attention of the basketball world with his superstar potential.
The 7ft 4in 18-year-old sensation has always produced for his side, Paris-based Metropolitans 92, and that trend continued in his most recent outing against Strasbourg.
Wembanyama had a double-double of 26 points and 18 rebounds in his last game of the calendar year, but Metro 92 lost 84-81.
His 8ft wingspan was on full display on both sides of the ground during Monday’s LNB Betclic Elite game.
