The term "generational" gets thrown out a lot ahead of the draft — regardless of year, sport or whether a player is actually deserving of that moniker.But in the case of Victor Wembanyama, the French prospect who is unanimously projected to go first overall in the 2023 NBA Draft, it might be an understatement. At 7-4, he would enter the NBA tied as the league's tallest player alongside Boban Marjanovic. Unlike Marjanovic and the vast majority of NBA players over 7 feet tall, he has moves and a shooting motion that better resemble a point guard than a center.While Wembanyama may be an "alien" outlier in the basketball world, he is simply one of several athletes to emerge from his family. That includes his grandfather and mother, both of whom played basketball professionally; his Olympic athlete father; and his siblings, who have their own playing careers in France.Considering the athletic pedigree of his family, it's no wonder Wembanyama is considered the can't-miss prospect of the 2023 NBA Draft.
