Thunder: GQ features Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's fashion
All season, Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander brightened the tunnels of Chesapeake Energy Arena with colorful pants, printed t-shirts, puffy jackets, and an overall eye-catching fashion sense.
Without NBA games being played, Instagram has taken the place of the tunnel walk, and Gilgeous-Alexander's "#quarantinefits" caught the eye of GQ Magazine. In a Q&A with GQ, Gilgeous-Alexander talked about a range of topics.
On the subject of home workouts, Gilgeous-Alexander said he has a hoop in his driveway and dumbbells in his house to help him stay in shape.
When asked if he would be OK with playing without fans, he said: "It would suck a lot. It'd be weird, obviously—it'd feel like you're just playing pickup in uniforms. But I'd rather play with no fans than not play at all."
The majority of the interview, however, focused on Gilgeous-Alexander's "quarantine fits." The Thunder guard said he's approaching his fashion at home the same way he would on a game day.
"Basically, when I put on clothes, it's all strictly about my mood," Gilgeous-Alexander told GQ. "It's all about how I'm feeling that day or in that moment. Oftentimes, I'll be looking through my closet and I realize I'll have something that was new or something I didn't realize I had. Maybe I didn't buy it for the purpose [of a quarantine fit], but I figure, 'Oh shoot, that would look dope with that.' Then it'll come to life from there."
