All-NBA Second Team – Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

SGA had an extremely good statistical year in 2022–2023 and has almost single-handedly pushed up OKC’s rebuild timeline. He averaged 31.4 PPG, 5.5 APG, and 4.8 RPG on 51% shooting from the field. While his three-point shooting is still inconsistent, he is getting to the rim at an elite level and also racking up a ton of free throws every game (10.9 per contest last year).

Each passing season, Gilgeous-Alexander makes the Paul George trade for the Los Angeles Clippers look worse and worse. Not only is SGA younger and more reliable than George, but he now has as many All-NBA First Team selections as him.

The young Canadian guard also hit multiple game-winners throughout the season and was named to the All-NBA First Team last season, despite OKC having just a 40-42 record. He will represent the Canadian National Team at the 2023 FIBA World Cup this offseason, alongside a crowded backcourt of Jamal Murray, RJ Barrett, Dillon Brooks, and Lu Dort.

Starting on Team Canada should allow SGA to have some nice momentum entering the 2023–2024 season, along with a better supporting cast, most notably Chet Holmgren.
