New Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, acquired along with Danilo Gallinaro from the Clippers in the Paul George trade, says he will bring his own style of play to the point guard position. He was talking with local reporters for the first time since the trade. SGA was handing out books from the Rolling Thunder Book Bus at Oklahoma City's Eugene Field Elementary school Tuesday afternoon.
He will share the point guard job, at least for a few months, with Chris Paul but eventually it will be SGA who will replace Russell Westbrook as the guy who runs the Thunder offense. He will also spending time at shooting guard and small forward depending on matchups.
Asked about the pressure of replacing a future Hall of Famer (actually two because CP3 will be there too) Gilgeous-Alexander told reporters he's not even thinking about that and will just try "to be the best me I can be."
