Happy 21st Birthday to Shai Gilgeous-Alexander!

The new face of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the King of Drip, point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, turned 21 today!

The former Kentucky Wildcat was recently traded from the Los Angeles Clippers after an incredibly hopeful rookie season to the Oklahoma City Thunder as the main piece of the Paul George trade. Chris Paul was (even more) recently traded to the Thunder in a deal that sent Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets (If I read that statement two weeks ago I would have thought I was reading The Onion).

In his first NBA season, Gilgeous-Alexander averaged 10.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game as the starting point guard for the 48-win Clippers. He was named to the NBA All-Rookie team for his performances this past year. Most importantly, he was a member of the All-Drip first team.

Maybe Paul can buy SGA a shot while the two are still teammates. Does Chris Paul even look the kinda guy who knows how to take a shot?

    SGA will be given plenty of rope the next couple of years on a very bad OKC team. Hope he doesn’t get burned out…
