Before they developed their own style, they were kids mimicking their favorite NBA players. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and other OKC players take us back to those days and players they emulated.
Every young basketball player has probably tried to copy the Michael Jordan fade away, the sky hook, shooting from Stephen Curry range or just shouted “Kobe” as they threw a bottle into a trashcan. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and these Thunder players discussed the NBA stars they imitated and pretended to be as they were growing up with their minds filled with hoop dreams.
