Josh Gide in action against the Dallas Mavericks.
Australian teen sensation Josh Gide has been dropped from the NBA All-Rookie first team this season for his strong debut with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Melbourne-born star was placed in the second team instead.
The 19-year-old reacted to his latest snubbing after failing to get a single vote for the league’s Rookie of the Year award last month.
Expressing his frustration, Gaddy posted a pair of funny emojis on his Twitter account in response to the announcement.

He also added an Instagram story where he re-shared a picture of the second group with a confused face emoji.
The first team is proud of a notable list of players, including Rookie of the Year winner Scottie Burns and runner-up Evan Mobley, No. 1 pick Cade Cunningham, Orlando gunman Franz Wagner and Houston star Jalen Green.
The second team included New Orleans’ Harb Jones, Denver’s Bones Highland, Chicago’s Ayo Dosunmu and Indiana’s Chris Duarte Gidey.
Giddey received 32 first-party votes (worth two points each) and 59 second-party votes (worth one point each) for a total of 122 counts, placing him 7th overall.
It is thought Gideon would have been a shoe-in for the top team if his promising season had not been shortened due to hip pain.
The injury came at an unfortunate time for Giddy, who missed three consecutive triple doubles games. His first triple double for the season, a 17-point, 13-rebound and 14-assist effort against Dallas in January, made him the youngest player to record a triple double in NBA history.
He played just one game after the All-Star break, when Green began his advance for the Rockets towards the end of the season, scoring 30 points or more in six of his last seven games, including a Monster 41-point out against Atlanta. The hawk.
Giddy finished his season with 12.5 points, 7.8 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game in 54 games and was selected Rookie of the Month at the Western Conference on four separate occasions.
