On Wednesday evening, the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves will play Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals at the Target Center.

Before the game, the All-NBA teams were announced by the league.

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was named to the All-NBA First Team.

The former Kentucky star finished the season with averages of 30.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 2.0 steals per contest while shooting 53.5% from the field and 35.3% from the three-point range in 75 games.

Following the announcement, ESPN’s Bobby Marks revealed that Gilgeous-Alexander will be eligible to sign an extension next summer that would pay him over $81 million for the 2030-31 season.

At that rate, he would be paid just under $1 million per game.

The Thunder are coming off a fantastic year where they were the first seed in the Western Conference with a 57-25 record.

They made the NBA playoffs for the first time since the 2020 season.

After sweeping the New Orleans Pelicans, the Thunder lost to the Dallas Mavericks in the second round (in six games).
