As the NBA postseason nears completion, Dan turns his attention to the upcoming NBA Draft Lottery and who will land French phenom Victor Wembanyama. The 19-year-old is the consensus projected top pick in the Draft with many, including NBA players, calling him a generational talent. Dan and the Danettes compare and contrast the hype surrounding Wembanyama to that of other “can’t-miss” players in history like LeBron James.
Dan Patrick: “You’ve got a sure thing in Victor Wembanyama. He’s going to be a generational talent, or at least we think he’s going to be...Wembanyama has touch, has handles, runs the floor, his mom was a basketball player, his mom’s dad was a basketball player, I think his father was a track athlete, so it’s in his genes. And then you have, you know, Giannis (Antetokounmpo) is talking (about him), you know there’s a lot of NBA players co-signing on this saying, you know this guy is going to be something special.”
