The goal is open in the long term to organize a friendly match between Metropolitans 92, Betclic Elite team and Team G League Ignite in Las Vegas. So, of course, this is all just in the planning stages for now, but we still have to admit the hype it already exists for several reasons. First and most obvious, because it would be an opportunity to show again how valuable the French team is against Uncle Sam’s basketball players. And secondly, probably a little less obvious for some, because such a meeting would result in a clash. some prospects announced at the beginning of the next Draft. Among them is Victor Vembanyama, whose name should still remind us of two or three things hereafter. The Metropolitans’ new player is regularly revealed as a tricolor nugget first choice the potential of the next cuvée seems insane. In front of him is Scoot Henderson, a diamond in the rough just waiting to be polished.
