A previously unknown basketball player stole the show while fans were tuned in to watch a pair of NBA prospects.
On Tuesday, the projected 2023 No. 1 draft pick Victor Wembanyama and his French basketball club Metropolitans 92 took on projected 2023 No. 2 pick Scoot Henderson and the G League Ignite.
The 7^2 Wembanyama immediately started trending because of play.

Both Wembanyama and Henderson were overshadowed by Steeve Ho You Fat of the Metropolitans 92 due to his ridiculous name.

Listen. This game is absolutely all about Scoot vs Victor with some other potential first-rounders sprinkled in as filer. But I WILL BE DAMNED if Steeve Ho You Fat doesn't become everyone's favorite player.
