Though OKC Thunder superstar Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's fashion choices are extremely loud, his demeanor both on and off the court is often considered to be quite soft and silent.

Despite what his in-game play may warrant, the 25-year-old has proven himself to be far from the type of individual who showboats and chirps excessively.

Of course, whenever he does something that strays from his normal manner, it seems to take center stage among both his teammates and media circuits, and his entertaining actions after Wednesday's commanding win over the Utah Jazz have certainly drawn attention in his direction.

As has been customary for the Thunder following hard-fought triumphs throughout this year's campaign, players were found making barking sounds, a trend they've adopted to highlight the "dog" this team has in them.

During such celebration, while on air with Bally Sports' Nick Gallo, seemingly out of nowhere Gilgeous-Alexander came into the frame and hijacked the microphone to do his best soundbite.

Naturally, it got his teammates hyped.

The surging Thunder have become somewhat known for their entertaining postgame celebrations and on-court interviews, as they're seemingly radiating with joy at all times and, simply, appear to be having fun while playing through their incredibly succesful 2023-24 regular season.

Gilgeous-Alexander continued on with his historic brand of play against the Jazz, as he wrapped up his night with an incredible stat-line of 31 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds, and 4 steals while shooting 54.5 percent from the floor and 50.0 percent from distance.

Led by him and the stupendous efforts of Chet Holmgren (35 points, 14 rebounds, 2 steals, 3 blocks), the Thunder thrust themselves into the top spot in the Western Conference standings, as they hold a half-game lead over the second-seeded Denver Nuggets with a record of 48-20.
