A blossoming superstar for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Toronto's favorite son Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is making waves as one of the NBA's brightest young talents. SGA's skillful efforts this season of over 31 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 6.5 assists have earned him a starting role for the Western Conference in the 2024 NBA All-Star Game.

But aside from SGA's talent as a basketball player, he is quite the fashion icon off the court too. With endorsement deals under Converse and SKIMS, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is quickly becoming a household name for the NBA in terms of crossover appeal.

SGA is certainly no slouch when it comes to high fashion. Shai pulled out all the stops with his superb class at the 2023 Met Gala, where he truly looked like a million-dollar superstar decked out in a Thom Browne suit. Even in the midst of some of entertainment's elite, SGA held his own and stunned the red carpet as a dapper representative of the NBA.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is possibly the NBA's best-dressed athlete today.

But SGA doesn't limit his fashion sense to fancy outfits, you can also find Shai wowing cameras with his trendy streetwear outfits. He got the people talking so much that fans voted him GQ's Most Stylish Man of the Year in 2022, beating out some other prominent names in music and Hollywood. SGA's typical everyday style might see him mix in a statement piece with a traditional sense of streetwear fads. SGA might pull a trick out of the bag and have on the MSCHF "Big Red Boots" or an extra puffy vest or fur coat.

SGA's synergy of fashion senses was on full display when he was showcased during the Paris Men's Fashion Week back in 2022. He would go from another standout Thom Browne striped coat on the runway to walking down the streets of Paris in a toned-down casual set of baggy pants, a work coat, and Y2K-style sunglasses.

But turned it up again for dinner looking like Michael Jackson in a leather coat, red leather pants, and one glove and all to top it off. In every setting, whether casual or going for official fashion business, SGA had rockstar written all over him.

At 25-years-old, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's star is only on the rise. The fact he already has the NBA and the fashion world on notice means the sky is the limit for SGA.
