Meet Victor Wembanyama’s siblings, sister, Eve, and brother, Oscar, ahead of the 2023 NBA Draft which he is set to dominate.
The 2023 NBA Draft is almost here and for the majority of casual and hardcore fans, they’re here to see one man and one man only.
Victor Wembanyama is the French basketball phenom who is widely expected to be selected 1st overall by the San Antonio Spurs. The 7ft 4in teenager has been described as a generational talent the likes of which the NBA has never seen before.
The 19-year-old’s NBA career officially starts tonight with the draft, and it could very well be the beginning of a Hall of Fame career.
He comes from a family of athletes
Victor was perhaps always destined to become a superstar athlete. He was born in Le Chesnay, France, to parents Felix and Elodie.
His father was a Congolese track and field competitor who competed in the triple jump, long jump, and high jump, while his mother played basketball and later coached him.
