Fans talk a lot about how incredible it would be if the Detroit Pistons got wunderkind Victor Wembanyama, the consensus No 1 pick in the next NBA Draft. But what about the consensus No. 2, guard Scoot Henderson? Well, that could create some questions.

Pretty much all real basketball fans know by now about Victor Wembanyama. The 7-foot-4 French phenom is being hailed as the best player coming into the draft in years. A lot of NBA teams are plotting to be really bad at the end of the season just to have a chance at him.

Despite his size, Wembanyama can pretty much do anything. It is amazing as a 18-year-old at 7-4 what he does. Look at this:

However, while Wembanyama is hailed as a generational talent, the second-best rated player is no chopped liver: guard Scoot Henderson of the G League Ignite.

In a battle between the Ignite and Wembenyama’s Metropolitan Club in October, in a specially arranged match in Nevada, Henderson led his team to victory with 28 points and nine assists (despite 37 points from Wembanyama).

Even the big guy from France was impressed:

“If I was never born, I think he’d deserve the first spot,” said Wembanyama.

If there was no ‘Unicorn’ like Wembanyama, Henderson would easily be the No. 1 pick..

As CBS Sports put it about the 6-foot-2, 195-pound guard in its latest mock draft:

"He’d be a pretty clear No. 1 pick contender in most years with the way he can explode by defenders with his speed, and his competitive spirit is unrivaled among guards in this class."

Sounds look a player any NBA team would love to have.

With the Detroit Pistons currently having one of the worst records in the NBA, if things do not turn around (and there is still plenty of time to do so), Detroit certainly might have a chance at scooping up Scoot.

And that might cause a major problem in the Pistons future backcourt.
