4. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
Last week's rank: N/A
After dropping out of the top five last week, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has had a resurgence in play.
The Thunder star has played amazing over the last week and has led Oklahoma City to an 11-5 record which is currently second best in the Western Conference. The Thunder's recent winning can be attributed directly to the play of Shai and how he has made others around him better.
Over Oklahoma City's last four games, Shai has averaged just over 34.5 points per game. if Shai is to continue on this hot streak of dominance, he will quickly rise on this list. He has even accounted for 16 steals over the last six games; this would be on pace for almost four steals per game.
Shai's dominance this season should come as no surprise for basketball fans. Over the summer in the FIBA World Cup, Shai would lead his country of Canada to their first-ever medal in Men's Basketball play. This was not only a huge leap for Canadian basketball but also for Shai because it showed he could lead his team.
With the NBA season now well underway, fans have gotten a glimpse into just how beneficial playing for the Canadian national team has helped Shai mature.
The Thunder's schedule will only get tougher as the season tracks along. The Mavericks and Thunder will play for the first time on December 2.
