As the Oklahoma City Thunder gear up for the playoffs, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander addresses the team’s youthful roster and its impact on their postseason prospects.

Despite concerns about their youthfulness and inexperience, Gilgeous-Alexander remains confident in the Thunder’s abilities.

“It’s not going to change. We’re still young. We’ll probably be young for another four or five years. We don’t worry about it,” Gilgeous-Alexander said, per Joel Lorenzi.

With Gilgeous-Alexander leading the charge, the Thunder have exceeded expectations this season, showcasing their potential to compete at the highest level.

Heading into the playoffs, Gilgeous-Alexander’s leadership will be crucial in guiding the young Thunder squad through the challenges of postseason basketball.

The 25-year-old guard has been instrumental in the Thunder’s success, averaging 30.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 6.2 assists in 34 minutes per game as a legitimate MVP candidate.

OKC will face the winner of the play-in game between the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans in the first round of playoffs.
