Although Oklahoma law stipulates that having sex with a girl under the age of 15 will face criminal charges. This could be a huge blow to the Thunder, as the team managed to play in the top three in the West in the new season.
Josh Giddy's teammate Holmgren also quickly deleted his personal social media news related to Josh Giddy. According to US media reports, Josh Gidi is at risk of losing his $40 million sponsorship deal with Weet-Bix, an Australian cereal brand owned by nursing home health food company.
It's just a sponsorship contract from Josh Giddey's home country, and if this happens to the league and penalizes, he won't just lose $40 million in sponsorship contracts, he won't even be able to find a decent sponsorship contract by then.
A spokesperson for the nursing home health food company said, "We are obviously aware of the news about Josh Gidi and are waiting for confirmation of the facts." We are in contact with Josh's management team pending further details. ”
Recently, the American media broke the news that Josh Giddey's underage girlfriend seems to like Instagram posts, especially about Josh Giddy being investigated by the Alliance. Josh Giddey is a young player with a lot of potential, he has the size of a small forward, but he plays as a point guard on the court, and he has a balanced offensive and defensive ability.
Actually, the NBA is very experienced in this kind of thing, and they have privately helped teams solve many difficult problems over the past years. The best way to solve the problem is to get the players to give some hush money, after all, the image of the league is greater than the image of the players, and the league will not cause their image to decline because of the bad off-field problems of the players.
Over the years, the NBA has always wanted to be the number one sport in the world, but in the United States, they can only be regarded as the third or fourth sport, and they cannot surpass the NFL. The final result of this matter may be that Josh Giddy was deceived, and in the end the matter was settled.
