This is the definitive account of how Victor Wembanyma became the best basketball prospect of his generation, told through immersive interviews with the star, stunning visuals, and behind-the-scenes stories from those who knew him best.

June 22, 2023. Wemby's face stretches high on the billboards of Times Square, New York. It's a big day. The day when he becomes the first Frenchman to be selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft. He was only 19 years old.

Drawing upon years of original research, interviews and unrivalled access to Wemby and his inner circle - including trainers, agents, teammates, family, and friends - this book unveils one of the most fascinating sporting personalities the NBA has ever seen, tracing his early life in Chesnay, Yvelines, to his arrival in the US, his historic season with the Metropolitans 92, his Las Vegas experience and his first season with the San Antonio Spurs.

Learn the mistake that led to his discovery, why LeBron calls him alien 'Alien' and how he has adapted to his new life at the apex of the sport.

This is the must-read genesis story of the most exciting player to have burst onto the scene in years.
