An Apple a Day keeps the Doctor away is the old adage that you heard a million times growing up. Perhaps that needs to change to an apple a day could turn you into a superstar point guard, as that seems to be the key to success for OKC Thunder star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

This past month, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander signed with Kim Kardashian's life style brand "Skims" to launch a new males line in Kardashian's latest fashion venture.

As part of his new deal with Skims, Kim Kardashian released a question and answer with the Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. in the midst of this question and answer the megas star Kim Kardashian pulled out a shocking detail about Gilgeous-Alexander's pregame ritual.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander revealed that he has an apple before every game which has opened the door for this journalist to have a boat load of questions for the max contract point guard.

Does Gilgeous-Alexander eat this apple in full? Is it sliced? Is there any dipping component, such as peanut butter? What is the timing of this apple consumption? Typically, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander begins working out as the doors are open.

So that leaves an interesting window. Is this a morning apple? A late afternoon apple? Literally right before tip-off after he leaves his pregame warm up to head back to the locker room? Is this a red apple? Green apple?

Gala Red Apples with a little bit of peanut butter are the best snack for this scribe, and if that is not the caliber of apple Shai Gilgeous-Alexander could you imagine if he elevated his apple consumption to this elite tier?

When did the Apple tradition begin vs the rising uptick of his superstar production? There are a lot of questions that I have to hunt down from Gilgeous-Alexander on this topic. Just know, before we tip off the next OKC Thunder media game, I will be having an apple in hopes of playing like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
