NBA Star Accused of Improper Relationship With Minor

Oklahoma City Thunder’s own star Joshua Giddey has allegations of a relationship with a minor.
Joshua Giddey accused of a romantic relationship with a minor.
Thunderous Intentions
Joshua Giddey accused of a romantic relationship with a minor.

Joshua Giddey is a member of the National Basketball Association (NBA), currently playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder (OKC). Giddey is originally from Melbourne, Australia and was drafted to the OKC Thunder in 2021 fresh out of high school at only 19 years old. Giddey is a guard who continues to put on impressive stats, bringing him to fame in the basketball world, but his decisions off of the court put his career in jeopardy.

Recently on social media, many videos and photos were posted of Giddey, a 21-year-old, and a young girl who is believed to be a junior in high school. The photos insinuated they were in a romantic relationship. The news was all over TikTok, with many people relating him back to Karl Malone who was one of the greatest forwards from the Utah Jazz. He had an alleged relationship with a 13-year-old girl, which obliterated his chance to further his professional career. So many are saying Giddey is done for, but he did play 28 minutes against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Nov. 3 while all the allegations were known.

It was reported that on Nov. 3, the Newport Beach Police Department was setting out an official investigation. They started by taking down the initial account that leaked all the photos and videos, so that they could ensure a safe and fair investigation for all. Giddey was interviewed, but he declined to comment on any questions. According to New York Post, Thunder’s head coach Mark Daigneault stated “I’m not gonna comment on anything as it relates to Josh off the court.” It seems as though the Thunder organization is trying to excuse the matter and only deal with on court problems, not personal.

The girl and her family are all avoiding the matter, not speaking on anything. No one is aware if she’s been in contact with Giddey, but they have a lot against him. He still seems to be continuing on with his normal routine with the team. This makes it seem as though he’s hoping for a roadblock in this investigation.

    Why is everyone accusing him without knowing the whole truth? He seems like a nice young man. The person that has not ever done anything wrong should cast the first stone. I don’t think there is any one alive that would be so good that they could cast a stone. I think some of the people talking is just jealous.

      HE IS A CHILD PREDATOR. He should not be defended just for his basketball skills.
