Victor Wembanyama, the 19-year-old French center standing at seven feet and five inches, has been hitting the gym to prepare for the 2023 NBA Draft. He recently posted pictures of his toned body on Instagram and playfully mentioned his “big dreams” despite having “thin arms.”
The 2023 NBA Draft is expected to have Metropolitans 92 player Victor Wembanyama as the top pick.
Victor Wembanyama, a French basketball player, has been making waves on social media with his chiseled physique. He is considered the most exciting NBA prospect since LeBron James and is expected to be selected as the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft. While his weight has been a concern for NBA scouts in the past, Wembanyama seems to have bulked up during the 2022-23 LNB season. He has shared pictures of himself flexing his muscles on Instagram, impressing fans with his agility and shooting abilities rarely seen among seven-footers. Despite his slender frame, he remains an impressive physical specimen, already standing four inches taller than Shaquille O’Neal with shoes on. Wembanyama is having a breakthrough season, averaging 21.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.8 steals, and 3.2 blocks in 23 games for Metropolitans while shooting a career-best 47.6% from the field. Although his 3-point percentage has dipped below 30%, it is still a remarkable feat considering his height and shot volume.
