OKC’s Josh Giddy is essentially the next “PISTOL”…..

 

THE PLAY AND THE LOOK ARE THOSE OF PETE MARAVICH

 

Play the video below and tell me what you see in 19 year old Aussie Josh Giddy.  The 6’8 point guard of the Oklahoma City Thunder made plays in a single game against one of the best defensive teams in the world Wednesday night on Reno Street in OKC that reminds me of a specific player of of basketball lore.  Floppy hair, a distinctive personality on the court, a deft floor leader that is already one of the best passers in the NBA……I will stop there.  Sure, Giddy is not the total package yet and is not a prolific scorer in the Association. But the skill package is evident and within time, say three years, you are looking at an NBA all-star that will not be a second fiddle to the highest paid star for the Thunder.  Welcome the new “Pistol”…….again view the video and enjoy.
