Victor is a potential superstar of the future and he has got the game to back that up.

His stellar performances in his rookie season haven’t gone unnoticed, as he signed a multi-year deal with the French luxury brand, Louis Vuitton.

James wore an all-white oversized suit during the 2003 NBA Draft. While LeBron’s iconic all-white suit remains one of the most memorable draft night outfits, Wembanyama isn’t particularly impressed with LeBron’s fashion sense.

During an interview with GQ Sports, Wembanyama called LeBron’s 2003 draft night outfit “funny.” 

He said, “I remember LeBron’s draft suit was so baggy. It was cool back then, but now it is just funny.” 

For his own draft night fit, Wembanyama enlisted the help of Louis Vuitton.

Wembanyama was dressed by the luxury French brand in a forest green suit, which he described as “just beautiful.” He said, “I think it was well worth it, because it’s definitely the best suit of this year’s draft, and also the past years, in my opinion.”
