All are aware of the unlimited potential that is found within Victor Wembanyama's game. From his jaw-dropping highlight reels to his historic box scores, Wembanyama's rookie season has been nothing short of special, outside of struggling to turn those nights into wins.

Many current players, including LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kevin Durant, and more, have already given their flowers to the 20-year-old rookie sensation. Former players such as Kevin Willis and Lenny Wilkens have also given props to the French phenom, and another respected player adds his name to the long list of names who have set the bar high for the number one overall pick.

Metta World Peace gives a Wilt Chamberlain level prediction for Wembanyama.

On the 'Run It Back' show on Fanduel, former respected player Metta World Peace went out on a limb and said that Wembanyama would soon reach Wilt Chamberlain status, even predicting that he would rack up quadruple-doubles somewhere down the road.

This isn't even Metta's first time throwing the Wilt Chamberlain title at Victor Wembanyama. In January, Peace was again on the 'Run It Back' show and threw out another wild prediction for what he thinks Victor will eventually do in his career.

Now, throwing around Wilt Chamberlain's name is no joke, especially predicting that he could break the 100-point scoring record. Many believe that Victor could replicate a similar type of career that Chamberlain had many decades ago. Since the hype around Wembanyama began, people were already setting the bar pretty high for him. With about a fourth of his rookie campaign left, the bar continues to be elevated for The Alien.
