In just his second NBA season, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has already made some NBA history.
On Monday, Gilgeous-Alexander racked up 20 points, a career-high 20 rebounds and 10 assists in his first triple-double, leading the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 117-104 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
At 21 years, 185 days old, he became the youngest player in league history to record at least 20 points, 20 rebounds and 10 assists in a game. He is the fourth second-year player in NBA history to register a 20-20 triple-double, joining Shaquille O’Neal, Charles Barkley and Oscar Robertson. The only other guard to have a 20-20 triple-double in the past 30 seasons is All-NBA star Russell Westbrook.
Needless to say, the future is very bright for the former Kentucky Wildcats star.
