NBA Makes Unprecedented Move Regarding Wembanyama

For the first time in its history, the NBA will be streaming the games of another professional league all season long on the NBA App, so that fans can watch all the French league antics of generational talent Victor Wembanyama. 

Of course, the fact that Commissioner Adam Silver has already warned NBA teams across the league not to tank to try to win the Wembanyama lottery this year is not lost on many fans who now see the NBA promoting the French wunderkind. 

Naturally, with all the attention on the 7'4" 19-year-old phenom, the NBA wants to capitalize and try to earn more subscribers for their app and League Pass. But any opportunity to watch this once-in-a-lifetime talent should be taken. 

Wembanyama is the most anticipated draft prospect since LeBron James 20 years ago. With the ability to block shots with ease, run the floor, pass, dribble, and step back and hit threes, he possesses an unparalleled set of skills never before seen in a player of that height. 

The first Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans 92 game from the French LNB Betclic ELITE league is being streamed on Saturday at 2pm Eastern.
