Shai Gilgeous-Alexander nominated for 2023-2024 MVP award

The NBA announced the finalists for the 2023-2024 season on Sunday. The Oklahoma City Thunder had several representatives among the groups.

The biggest is Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s MVP nomination. This shouldn’t come as a shock. The 25-year-old was the face of the youngest first seed in the competition’s history.

Gilgeous-Alexander has been one of the best players in the league this season, consistently scoring over 30 points in high efficiency.

After finishing fifth in the MVP voting last season, Gilgeous-Alexander has emerged as one of the best players in the league. He averaged 30.1 points on 53.5% shooting, 6.2 assists and 5.5 rebounds in 75 games this season.

Other nominees are Nikola Jokic and Luka Doncic. The 2023-24 MVP winner will be announced during the NBA playoffs. Gilgeous-Alexander was also nominated for Clutch Player of the Year along with Stephen Curry and DeMar DeRozan.

Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault and Chet Holmgren also received nominations for Coach of the Year and Rookie of the Year, respectively.
