OKC Thunder cornerstone talent Shai Gilgeous-Alexander finished fifth in Most Improved Player voting and should be aiming to win the award next season.

Although Shai Gilgeous-Alexander season with the OKC Thunder didn’t finish how he hoped the Canadian made strides this season. In his new role, Gilgeous-Alexander was more of the primary scorer and often played off the ball.

Former head coach, Billy Donovan instituted his creative genius by capitalizing on having three point guards all capable of playmaking, driving, or scoring from the perimeter.
