The NBA Draft lottery took place on Tuesday night, and the answer to biggest question in the NBA this season will be answered; who is getting Victor Wembanyama? The top five looks to be full of pretty good prospects, and potentially 2 or 3 program changers.
#1-Victor Wembanyama-This will be the easiest draft pick since Lebron James. He is the most intriguing and special prospect that we have seen since James was selected in 2003.
He is a 7-5” wing from France who plays defense like Rudy Gobert and has a great handle and smooth shot, like Porzingis. His body is a little scary. He is thin as hell. If he can bulk up a bit, he has All-World Potential.
#2-Scoot Henderson-The second of the players that feels like a lock to be a star. Henderson has the athleticism at the point guard slot, that has become a staple of the best in the league. He has Westbrook flashes with his bounce and attitude.
#3-Brandon Miller-The first college prospect to make the list. Miller is a special talent who took over the college basketball regular season for more than one reason. Focusing just on hoops, he is a 6-9” wing who can shoot it, gets to the rack, and defend. He is a real player, and before the incident seemed to be mature beyond his years.

#4-Amen Thompson-One of the two twins that went to the Overtime Elite. These will be the first elite prospects that are coming from that league. It is hard to judge, but this kid is a freak athlete. He is a 6-7” wing who can handle it as well. He is probably the second-best downhill attacker in the draft.
#5-Asur Thompson- His brother was just talked about, and Asur is another elite athlete who looks to be involved early in the NBA. He isn’t quite the athlete that his brother is, but he is close. He is a better shooter than his brother, which is why he is also going to be a very early lottery pick.
