Thunder equipment manager Wilson Taylor was digging around the team storage facility prior to the start of the season. He happened to find five pairs of Thunder-colored Kobes initially intended for Derek Fisher, who played in OKC from 2012-2014. Within minutes, Giddey was at the facility looking to secure them. (Taylor) pulled out his phone, took a picture and texted it to Josh Giddey. “No way!” Giddey wrote back. “Can I come right now?” … Giddey, cradling the boxes like a child on Christmas, looked at Taylor and said: “Can I have them all?”
Giddey, playing in his 18th career game, recorded 19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds in nearly 34 minutes of work. He converted on 8-of-15 shot attempts from the field, including 3-of-4 from 3-point range, during the 110-104 loss. With the performance, Giddey joined LeBron James and LaMelo Ball as the only teenagers in NBA history to reach 100 rebounds and 100 assists within their first 20 games at 19 years, 45 days. He now has 131 rebounds and 105 assists on the season.
