Sorry, but the phenomenon leaves nothing to others. Victor Wembanyama won all the individual trophies of the France championship (aka Betclic Elite) put at stake this season, elected Wednesday MVP of the season for the first time, and again crowned best young and best defender.
"These trophies are sublimated only because we had this second place in the league. If we had been relegated or outside the playoffs, it would have meant nothing at all," added Wembanyama, who is committed to the best prospect (after 2021 and 2022) and his second best defender (2022).

"Wemby", who learned overnight the name of his very likely NBA franchise next season, the San Antonio Spurs having inherited the first pick in the draft of June 22, is also logically in the five major of the National Basketball League (LNB).
"I have to leave my mark"
He showed himself in front of the press satisfied with the raid carried out. "That's exactly what I want to be No. 1 for: I always want to innovate, to do new things," he said. I am obliged to leave my mark. The MVP award was "in his head" at the beginning of the season but "no individual title matters if he does not follow a goal," he said.
"These trophies are sublimated only because we had this second place in the league. If we had been relegated or outside the playoffs, it would have meant nothing at all," added Wembanyama, who joined the Mets 92 in the quarterfinals starting Sunday against Cholet.
The French back of Asvel Nando De Colo, the Zimbabwean Vitalis Chikoko (pivot of Pau-Lacq-Orthez) as well as the Americans Matt Morgan (leader of Le Mans) and Ronald March (winger of Roanne) complete the five major. Laurent Villa (Cholet) was named best coach.
