Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is one of the NBA’s better prospects. After being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Paul George trade, he exploded onto the scene, partnering with Chris Paul to drag them to the playoffs. However, he can still improve. Now that he is the sole star on this young OKC team, his numbers will improve since there are no other stars on this team. He can easily average 25+ points which should be good enough to pick up his first award, and maybe even make an All-Star Game.
