White declared, “Shai’s one of the best in the league.” They are quite adept at confusing us, testing our communication, and doing all of that. They are therefore a difficult squad to defend, and I believe the entire league is attempting to figure it out.

In the West, the Thunder hold the second-best record. 23-9 is their number. Gilgeous-Alexander is shooting 54.9% overall, 33.0% from three, and 90.7% from the foul line to average 31.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 2.6 steals, and 0.8 blocks this season.

In terms of total points, points per game, total steals, steals per game, field goals made, and player efficiency rating, Gilgeous-Alexander is ranked third in the NBA. One of the favorites to win this season’s MVP Award is the Kentucky product.

With Gilgeous-Alexander leading the way, OKC has a chance to win it all with the Thunder making the playoffs for the first time since 2020, according to all the signals.
