Earlier today, in a game against Bosnia and Herzegovina, France center Victor Wembanyama bagged 19 points. While doing so, one of his plays left NBA Twitter in a frenzy. Wembanyama shot a step-back three-pointer. Following this, he instantly looked away. He was confident that the ball would go in. This one shot from behind the arc and the confidence that followed looked eerily similar to what two-time MVP, Stephen Curry does. Fans were quick to point this out.
