We don’t talk about him much, but Josh Giddey holds a very serious place in the league’s history books. The Australian rookie even incorporated an ultra-closed club that only had two members, including LeBron James! It rates you the guy’s level!
With a record 6 wins out of 12 losses, the Thunder made a start that was way above expectations and analysts predict a very complicated season. However, despite two victories against the Lakers, Mark Daigneault’s men are not yet strong enough to win all of their choppy matches. As a result, the arrival of Rudy Gobert’s Jazz ended in a defeat (110-104) that was just too strong for them.
Still, Oklahoma’s Young Wolves didn’t make it easy for the Mormons, starting with the duo Luguentz There – Josh Giddey. The former was the top scorer of the game with 27 units while the rookie was ultra complete with 19 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists. An impressive statistics sheet, especially since it enabled him to join a very selective club. In fact, he’s only the third player ever to make his debut!
Josh Giddey as versatile as LeBron and LaMelo Ball
Great statistics from @NBA_AU:
Josh Giddey, LaMelo Ball and LeBron James are the only teenagers in NBA history to have 100 assists and 100 rebounds in their first 20 games.

Angry, LeBron stops the game and has the fans kicked out!
Josh Giddey, LaMelo Ball and LeBron James are the only young players in NBA history to have 100 assists and 100 rebounds in their first 20 games.
This inspires confidence in the Australian, who is already establishing himself as a very good pick in 6th place. OKC can see far with him, the youngster has had 11 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists per game since his debut. At heart a Swiss Army knife with real shot potential, as his 8/15 shooting against Utah (3/4 distance) proves. If he continues like this, he could quickly become an indisputable owner … on site or elsewhere.
What do LaMelo Ball and LeBron have in common? Both became Rookie of the Year. We can only wish Josh Giddey that he goes the same way! Maybe he can polish up the image of Oklahoma City a bit.
