Sports games and e-sports are becoming more and more interesting for gamblers every year. A striking indicator of this is the huge popularity of the game Aviator. But the season for fans of American sports will soon begin. For example, the NBA already holds summer series, and the regular season starts in the fall. Basketball fans are already speculating about how the teams will perform next season, with some notable roster changes taking place during the off-season.
Traditionally, after the end of the NBA season, a talent fair was held. Teams chose promising young players. Consider who from the top list made it to the National Basketball Association.
It came as no surprise that French power forward Victor Vembanyama was selected as the first pick in the draft. The player spent the previous season in the French championship as part of the Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans 92 team. But this did not help the club become champions. In the final series, Boulogne lost to Monaco, which dominated the league, 0:3.
Therefore, many questions remain about whether the Frenchman will be able to perform well at the top level. After all, the opposition in the NBA is much stronger than in the championship of France. And as the LNB final showed (especially the first game), Vembanyama does not always play well if he is played tightly.
Viktor's main trump card is growth. Thanks to this, the Frenchman is very effective both under someone else's ring and in his own half of the area on rebounds. Also, Vembanyama has a number of skills that allow you to beat an opponent. Well Victor throws. And here again, his height plays in favor of the Frenchman.
The basketball player is distinguished by an incredibly clean player and the ability to place blocks without breaking the rules. The block average is slightly over 2 fouls per game. But will this trend continue in the NBA? Attackers are more technical here.
It may take some time for a player to play at the top level in the NBA. Or maybe the striker's talent will be revealed already in the first games of the regular season. This is speculation so far. Everything will fall into place next season. The Frenchman will start his first year in the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs. The player is predicted a bright future and a career as one of the main stars.
It seems that Victor himself has already believed in this and accepts it as a fact, although recognition has yet to be earned. Victor has already managed to get into a scandal with Britney Spears, and also refuses to communicate with the press. Let's see if the Frenchman's media popularity will lead to a star disease that could leave its mark on the career of one of the most promising basketball players in the world. Moreover, in the NBA summer league in Las Vegas, the player showed decent results in only one match. And the small weight for such growth makes the Frenchman vulnerable in positional struggle. Experts also fear that the young star will be injured too often.
Brandon Miller will play for Charlotte from the 2023/24 season. The second draft pick is highly rated by experts. Many compare the player with Paul George at maximum speed. Miller is considered one of the most potential scorers among the representatives of the 2023 draft. The player has repeatedly proved a high level in the student league and is ready to play in the NBA.
Athlete's short stature remains. Also, with good dribbling, the player rarely goes into a single attack, as he feels problems with beating larger opponents. If in the NBA Miller manages to compensate for these shortcomings or improve his skills, Brandon may well become one of the main stars of the National Basketball Association.
Scoot Henderson was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers. The advantages of the player are considered athleticism and an explosive first step, which allows you to quickly beat opponents and go on the attack alone. Good dribbling makes Scut one of the most difficult opponents. The player constantly collects a large number of fouls on himself, since taking the ball cleanly from Henderson is not an easy task.
Scoot is considered one of the best playmakers in the draft. He has good passing with one hand and excellent vision of the playing field. Perfectly analyzes the opponent's defense. He sees safety nets and does not fly into the attack in hopeless situations, waiting for the support of the team.
Of the minuses to be worked on, we note:
But Henderson works hard on himself and plays with great dedication. So Scoot has a lot to learn in his first season in the NBA.
