Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the Oklahoma City Thunder has had a very busy summer and deserves to let loose.
That is exactly what he did over the weekend.
According to a video shared by ClutchPoints, the OKC guard was spotted partying after Team Canada won the bronze medal at the FIBA Basketball World Cup.

The Canadian team wasn’t able to walk away with the gold medal but they still had some very impressive games.
And Gilgeous-Alexander was a huge part of all of them.
He averaged 24.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists during the tournament and was Canada’s most important player.
During the team’s final game to clinch the bronze, Gilgeous-Alexander put up 31 points, 6 rebounds, and 12 assists.
He was once again looking like the NBA All-Star that he is.
In 2022-23, he was dynamic for the Thunder and averaged 31.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 5.5 assists on 51% from the floor.
The Thunder aren’t yet playoff contenders but they are certainly an exciting team to watch.
And Gilgeous-Alexander is one of the biggest rising stars in the league.
Now that his time in the World Cup has come to an end, Gilgeous-Alexander is going to shift gears and get ready for the 2023-24 season.
The Thunder aren’t content with where they are at now and they are hoping that the new season will be pivotal.
Along with Gilgeous-Alexander, other Thunder players like Josh Giddey, Lu Dort, Jalen Williams, and others will be leading the Thunder.
And Chet Holmgren is also planning his big NBA debut, which would better enhance the team.
In other words, this could be a huge season for Gilgeous-Alexander and his team.NEXT: Fans React To Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's Dominant Performance
