Wemby Is Taking Over.

Even if Victor Wembanyama had no preferences for the NBA draft lottery outcomes, the top prospect seemed to have had some responses.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, who covered the Wembanyama sweepstakes from France and later recorded an episode of the "Brian Windhorst & The Hoop Collective Show," when the Mavericks and Trail Blazers appeared on the screen during the lottery broadcast, Wembanyama — and the room around him — showed some emotion.

However, neither club received the No. 1 overall pick, as the Spurs won the NBA Draft lottery and the opportunity to choose Wembanyama, who will join the league as one of the most anticipated prospects in years.

Windhorst added that for Dallas, Wembanyama "raised his eyebrows and gave like a look."

When the Trail Blazers pushed into the top four, there was "discussion in the room" about the possibility of playing with Damian Lillard, if the star returns, and assistant general manager Mike Schmitz.
Wembanyama, who ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski called "possibly the greatest prospect in team sports history," will instead join Gregg Popovich and the Spurs.

As NBA players from France, Tony Parker and Boris Diaw have previously shined for the Spurs, and if the Spurs follow through on what looks to be an easy decision at No. 1 overall, Wembanyama will have the opportunity to add to his country's heritage inside the team.

"I can't really describe it, it's just my heart is beating," Wembanyama said after the lottery in an interview with ESPN. "I've got everyone I care about and everyone I know around me. It's a very memorable occasion that I'll remember for the rest of my life."
It's obvious Wemby has the hype, lets see if he can live to it and be a the top 10 player of all time he is expected to be.
