The Oklahoma City Thunder haven’t had a season as bad as some predicted but they also haven’t been incredible either.
With a record of 3-3, the Thunder are better than some teams who were expected to trounce them.
But they have a long way to go before they are in the playoffs.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander tonight:
— NBA Retweet (@RTNBA) October 30, 2022
One player, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, has been again showing his skills.
The team overtook the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night, beating Luka Doncic and his squad 117-111.
And Gilgeous-Alexander was a major part of that with his 38 points, 9 assists, and 6 rebounds.
It was just the latest great night in a string of them for the young guard.
SGA Strikes Again
For his career, Gilgeous-Alexander has been remarkable with an average of 18.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 4.3 assists.
But he’s on a whole other level in 2022-23, with 31 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists.
The greatness of this young player has led many to question how much longer he will be in OKC.
Perhaps he will be wooed away by his hometown Toronto Raptors or another team that wants to give him a legitimate chance of making it far in the playoffs.
Some inside reporting has suggested that the idea of Gilgeous-Alexander leaving Oklahoma City isn’t far-fetched.
However, he seems fired up and committed to his team lately, like someone who believes in his squad 100% and thinks they could win.
We don’t know what’s ahead for Gilgeous-Alexander and his promising career.
But we do know that even when he is playing for a team with a low chance of playoff success, he plays his heart out.
That says an awful lot about him and what his future in the league could look like.
