Is Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s star on the rise, or is he running for the hills?

Shaivonte Aician Gilgeous-Alexander is a star and even has a long, possibly Latin, name to go with it.

Unfortunately, when a star ascends into the firmament it draws a lot of covetous eyes...

Every game I’ve watched this year, I’ve listened to the opposing commentators, as I always do (and heartily recommend). And every single one of them has waxed lyrical over our boy’s blossoming abilities. The departures of Russ and PG have thrust our Shai sophomore into the spotlight, and he’s gobbling it up on the court... But what’s going on in that cunning mind of his?
