Clippers rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander said in a recent interview that he is most looking forward to playing Russell Westbrook in his rookie season.
In an interview with The Athletic he said:
“Just ’cause of the energy he [Westbrook] plays with, his competitiveness. I feel like it’ll be fun to go against him. It’ll spark me to play harder.”
The 6-foot-6 Point Guard hopes to make a splash in his rookie season and to be a candidate for Rookie Of The Year.
The Clippers will face Thunder on the 20th October for their 2nd regular season game.
We will see how it goes…
