Lakers star LeBron James called Victor Wembanyama an “alien”
In a recent conversation with the media personnel, LeBron was asked about France’s rising star Victor Wembanyama. And in response to that he had nothing but good things to say. “Everybody’s been a unicorn over the last few years. Well, he’s more like an alien,” James said. “I’ve never seen, no one’s ever seen anyone as tall as he is, but it’s fluid and as graceful as on the floor.”
The upcoming basketball phenom also spoke up about his preference for being called an “alien” rather than a unicorn. “First of all, I’m really glad he said that because I didn’t like to be called a unicorn,” Wembanyama said. “I like it because it’s just something not from this world. I like being called an alien, yeah. It’s really what I’m working to be—something unique and original.” Also Read: Atlanta Hawks fire head coach Nate McMillan
