What was Victor’s background?
Victor was born on January 4, 2004. He joined the Nanterre 92 basketball club at the age of 10. At 11, he was already 6’2 tall. He will remain with Nanterre until 2021. He then joins ASVEL, a club chaired by Tony Parker. For the second time, he is voted best prospect in the French championship and wins the French championship title. To everyone’s surprise, he signed up for Metropolitans 92 in 2022. He is expected to join the NBA in 2023, where he is expected to be drafted number 1. In 2021, with the French U19 team, he became world champion against the USA. He was named in the tournament’s best 5 after dominating tournament MVP Chet Holmgren head and shoulders, despite being two years younger. 2023 was the year of consecration. His Mets club lost in the final to the Monaco armada, but Victor was able to console himself with the titles of top scorer, top rebounder, top counter-attacker and finally MVP of the championship. An unprecedented feat at the tender age of 19. These feats earned him a first-round selection in the 2023 NBA draft by the San Antonio Spurs.
Why does he generate so much anticipation?
