Josh Giddey NBA debut

It's a momentus day, another Aussie into the NBA. Not often we get a young kind into the NBA and a first round pick at that.

Here's hoping he does himself proud and this is the start of a successful NBA career.

Go Josh!

solid so far without trying to force anything early.

Thought he was lazy when the team went down by 20+, the whole team.

Happened last season, when the team was down so did his effort just diminish.

Giddey most rebounds for a thunder player on debut.

It's a momentus day, another Aussie into the NBA.
And another one: Landale had 4 minutes for the Spurs in his debut.

I thought he looked alright for a first hit out. Kept crashing the glass so was able to make an impact despite limited opportunities with the ball in his hands. Would definitely like to see him get more time at the point.

Giddey had a few off days leading to this game but this looks like a breakout here. There was always going to be an adjustment period when the real season started but seems he's getting up to speed now. Super impressive stat line.

Shame OKC doesn't have a better team particularly shooting wise - then opposition would really feel the damage he can cause.

Giddey looks like he is at home in the NBA - doesn’t look out of his depth at all.

Boomers starting PG for the next 2-3 Olympics.

Wait until OKC actually let him run the point. Right now he is only being used as a secondary ball handler to Shai.

His game translates well to the NBA. He's looking like the 2nd best player on the team, albeit an outrageously obvious tanking team. He's also not being used as well as he could be and not getting the minutes that he deserves on this kind of weak team. Giddey should be running the show. He creates so many more opportunities for his teammates. He also excels at the pick-n-roll and I don't see OKC running many PnRs, probably partly because they have no threatening frontcourt players that Giddey could run it with. It also doesn't help that his teammates can't convert so many baskets served on a platter.

He isn't playing with the same confidence and swagger as the pre-season, but he is still confident enough to attempt some ambitious moves. Spins in the lane, taking on Embiid one-on-one. It's great to watch. I've been impressed by his toughness too. When Embiid ploughed into him on the fast break in the 4th, he looked like his leg was hurt badly, but Giddey shrugged it off, knocked down a free-throw, then proceeded to cause a turnover and hit a 3 on consecutive play phases. His ambitiousness and mental toughness bodes well for his development.

Similar to lamelo seems like it is easier for them to rack up stats in the NBA. He also is doing this without any pick and roll play or inside threat.
