Oklahoma City’s Shai Gilgeous-Alexander continues to improve each year of his young career. He put up numbers this season of 23.7 PPG, 5.9 APG & 4.7 RPG on a very efficient 50.8% shooting from the field. Gilgeous-Alexander’s attention to working on making the right basketball plays has stood out more than anything in his three seasons. Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault talked about SGA’s impressive work ethic during his 2020-2021 exit interview.

(Via Oklahoma City Thunder):

“He maximizes his time and is a real worker. It shows up in all parts of his game and with his body. I mean you can’t fake that, and that’s encouraging for a guy that’s 22 and has a lot of runway ahead of him.”
