Oklahoma City Thunder Josh Giddey is enmeshed in a scandal following social media claims that he is seeing a minor, purportedly Liv Cook.

Another twist in the story comes from a video that seems to show Cook confessing to dating the NBA player. “Hey guys! ” she says in the video. We don’t need to discuss the fact that I’m dating Josh.”

Giddey has not responded to the accusations as of yet, and neither the NBA nor the Oklahoma City Thunder have issued formal comments. It’s important to note that, contrary to social media rumors, Giddey has not been released by the Thunder, and misinformation originated from a parody sports page.

Thunder coach Mark Daigneault addressed the situation by saying, “Personal matter, and I have no comment on it.” And that’s all I have to say about it.”

Giddey has contributed significantly to the team’s success this season, helping them to an impressive second-best record in the Western Conference, despite the off-court developments.
