Josh Giddey Waived: There are concerning allegations surrounding Oklahoma City Thunder guard Josh Giddey, suggesting involvement with an underage individual.

Anticipation is mounting as the NBA community awaits the response from both the Oklahoma City Thunder and the league regarding the allegations surrounding guard Josh Giddey.

The situation has become a focal point on social media, casting a shadow over the otherwise positive developments on the court.

Despite the potential distraction, the Thunder have performed exceptionally well this season.

With an impressive record of 11-4 through 15 games, they currently hold the second spot in the fiercely competitive Western Conference.

Riding a six-game winning streak and victorious in eight of their last ten matchups, the Thunder are displaying the potential for strong playoff contention, a significant shift from their last postseason appearance in 2020.

Giddey, now in his third NBA season, has been a consistent starter in all 15 games for the Thunder.

In an average playing time of 27.2 minutes per game, he’s contributing significantly with 12.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game, showcasing his growing impact on the team’s performance.

As the on-court success unfolds, the off-court situation looms, adding an extra layer of complexity to the Thunder’s season narrative.

Once more, there has been no official statement from either the NBA or the Oklahoma City Thunder, Giddey’s team.

Should the swirling rumors prove accurate, specifically if the girl in the video is confirmed to be a minor, the potential consequences could be truly staggering.

Giddey stands at risk of losing his promising NBA career, and the gravest consequence looms ahead—he could potentially face imprisonment.

Giddey’s situation is unfolding, laden with unanswered questions, yet public sentiment appears indifferent.

The void of official information hasn’t deterred people from engaging in merciless comparisons and trolling the Oklahoma City player across his social media platforms.

Currently, the available evidence includes photos and videos, coupled with suggestions that the individual involved might be underage.

However, neither Josh nor the Oklahoma City Thunder has provided any statements at this juncture.

As more details emerge from all involved parties, we will share them. In the meantime, exploring Josh Giddey’s X account and mentions offers a glimpse into the online trolling he’s facing.

Josh Giddey Comparison To Karl Malone

NBA enthusiasts on X are eager for comprehensive information about a case that could potentially alter Josh Giddey’s career in the league.

Comparisons have already surfaced, drawing parallels with another scandal involving an NBA legend and an underage girl — none other than Karl Malone celebrated as one of the greatest scorers in NBA history.

It’s undoubtedly a situation Malone must find disconcerting, resurfacing for one of the darkest moments in his life.

To provide context, Josh Giddey of the Oklahoma City Thunder went viral after images and videos with an underage girl named Livv Cook circulated online.

In these videos, Giddey refers to the underage woman as ‘my girl’ while conversing with another man, presumably her brother.

The question persists: why are people drawing comparisons between Giddey and Karl Malone?

What the 14-time All-Star did was much darker than what Giddey is currently being accused of.

While playing for the Jazz, there were reports that Malone got a 13-year-old girl pregnant. He was accused of statutory rape after he reportedly had a child with the girl when he was still in college.
