Shai Gilgeous-Alexander announced today that he’s linked up with Converse Hoops, joining Kelly Oubre, Natasha Cloud and Draymond Green on the still-expanding roster.

“I show the kids that no matter where you come from, anything is possible,” he said in a brand new video that released today.

Just four days away from turning 22, Gilgeous-Alexander has already made a national name for himself. After a solid rookie season with the LA Clippers, he’s made a statement in his sophomore campaign by dropping an average of nearly 20 points a night and helping the Thunder stay securely in the playoff race out west. His unique pace on the floor makes him a difficult cover.

And his eye for unique fashion makes him the favorite over on LeagueFits.

“I’m a guy that wants to stand out, be different from the pack,” he said.

And now the Canadian-born, Kentucky Wildcat product is making the move from Nike to Converse where he’ll be given freedom to creatively express himself through sneakers and fashion.
