Oklahoma City Thunder fans may have discovered a video that will exonerate Josh Giddey.
Over the past few days, Giddey has been at the center of an unfortunate story. He stands accused of dating a high school girl who is under the age of 18. Multiple troubling photos and messy videos have emerged featuring the pair.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, on Saturday, a video came out potentially linking Giddey to a second high schooler.
In the midst of all that, Giddey’s Thunder teammates have begun scrubbing problematic tweets about him from their social media accounts.
It has been a rough situation – all the way around.
On Saturday afternoon, however, things may have taken a turn in the Thunder star’s favor.
A video began to circulate online that some think may change people’s perceptions of what occurred.
Fans are convinced that the video exonerates Giddey in some capacity:

Of course, with social media being social media, not everyone is convinced.
Viewers were left on very different pages regarding what the video means:
Is this guy Josh Giddey’s Angel ? Cuz He’s about to save his whole career.

In any event, clearly Giddey is caught up in a controversy nobody ever wants to be caught up in.
The Thunder are in the midst of a fantastic season, and this is a distraction that puts a dark cloud over the entire organization.

It also doesn’t help matters that all parties involved – Giddey, the Thunder, and the NBA – have yet to actually offer any substantive comments on what occurred here.
Will Giddey actually be exonerated by this video when everything is said and done? Time will tell.
