People may not have the same outlook on Josh Giddey ever again. Recently, the 21-year-old NBA star was accused of entertaining a relationship with a 15-year-old girl. Obviously, this isn’t a good look for the athlete and it is considered illegal in the United States as well as in most parts of the world. If these allegations are true, his career could very well be in jeopardy.
It has been over a day since the allegations came out and fans have been blasting Giddey online. He is being harassed for answers at the moment, but he hasn’t responded to the situation. Several posts claimed that the Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard was in a se*ual relationship with the girl. This immediately reminded fans of another highly ridiculed legend, Karl Malone, and his statutory r*pe case involving Gloria Bell.
The girl has been identified as Liv Cook. Fans were able to recognize her from TikTok, as she has a decent amount of followers. Cook mostly posts TikToks by herself or with her friends. However, based on a few videos, she is still in high school. A few videos and images are circulating on social media which indicate that Giddey and Cook have been se*ually involved with each other. Unfortunately, Giddey’s silence will not work in his favor and the situation is expected to boil further.
Josh Giddey makes his first appearance since the social media allegations
OKC has been playing extremely well lately. They are currently ranked second in the Western Conference with a record of 11 wins and 4 losses. Their success is due to the chemistry that has been built between Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Josh Giddey, and rookie Chet Holmgren. Interestingly, Holmgren and Giddey happen to be extremely close. When the allegations came out, the Rookie of the Year Award candidate deleted a tweet that expressed how much he valued Giddey as a friend.
Unfortunately for Giddey, Chet’s social media move has also driven fans to believe the allegations are true. OKC last played on November 22, before the allegations came out. They are scheduled to play against the Minnesota Timberwolves on November 25. Giddey has been actively practicing with the team and was recently interviewed by the media ahead of the game.
“I understand the question obviously, but there’s no further comment right now.”
