Oklahoma City Thunder sensation Shai Gilgeous-Alexander continues to dazzle on the court, earning high praise from former NBA star Stephon Marbury, who hails him as the premier Canadian basketball talent of all time.

Marbury’s bold proclamation comes amidst Gilgeous-Alexander’s stellar performance this season, solidifying his status as a top-tier player in the league and a key figure for Team Canada on the international stage.

At just 25 years old, Gilgeous-Alexander boasts an impressive resume, highlighted by back-to-back NBA All-Star selections and remarkable statistical output, averaging 31.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game.

The Canadian guard’s impact extends beyond the NBA hardwood, as he played a pivotal role in securing a historic bronze medal for Canada at the 2023 FIBA World Cup, propelling the nation to its first Olympic appearance in over two decades.

Marbury’s assertion, delivered via Ball Don’t Stop, underscores Gilgeous-Alexander’s unparalleled skill set and transformative influence on the game, positioning him ahead of esteemed Canadian basketball icons like two-time MVP Steve Nash.

“Shai is already the best Canadian basketball player ever. His skill set is something we haven’t seen before. He’s different,” Marbury said.
