Top prospects Wembanyama, Henderson shine in the match

The future of the NBA could have been on display Tuesday night, as No. 1 contenders Victor Wembenyama and Scoot Henderson went head-to-head in an exhibition game and exceeded expectations.

Wembanyama, playing for French professional team Metropolitans 92, finished with 37 points, 5 saves and 4 rebounds. The 18-year-old shot 7/11 from a three-point range, demonstrating a keen shooting ability alongside his otherworldly size and length.

Wembanyama says he stands at 7 feet-3, which will make him one of the most active players in the NBA when he’s enlisted.

On the other hand, Henderson could be the lead for the overall No. 1 pick most of the other years. The 18-year-old did not disappoint, scoring a total of 28 points, five assists, nine rebounds and two steals as he led the G-League Ignite with a 122-115 win. Henderson shoots 11m from the field, leading his team in points and assists.

While Henderson sparks superstar potential, the opportunity to see Wembanyama play against high-profile rivals in the US is something NBA fans should cherish. LeBron James, Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton were on hand to watch these two go head to head, based on Marc Spears of ESPN.

As the hype surrounding Wembanyama continues to grow, the French major could become the NBA’s most anticipated prospect since James joined the league in 2003.
