Gilgeous-Alexander’s unique game on-court and influential presence off-court joins the brand’s growing Converse Hoops roster of innovators. Since Converse relaunched basketball in 2019 after nearly a decade away from the sport, the newly revamped roster has grown to include WNBA Champion and social activist Natasha Cloud, NBA Champion and avid investor Draymond Green, and fashion-forward creative and NBA small forward Kelly Oubre Jr.
The youngest player to achieve a 20-20-10 stat-line, the Oklahoma City Thunder sensation wants you to remember one thing, “You can’t spell swag without S-G-A.” This is the energy that Shai brings to Converse as the brand continues to provide its athletes with a platform for expression.
Gilgeous-Alexander’s calm demeanor complemented by his patient-yet-sneaky game have contributed to an impressive rise in the NBA. Off the court, he is a fashion enthusiast who finds harmony in sketching clothing designs before hitting the hardwood.
