After breaking down about Dinwiddie’s performance in the game, Coach Nick asked him about his time with the Nets. Dinwiddie, whose contract runs another two years at the vets minimum, talked about how much he wants to stay in Brooklyn … and why. “Right now, I have two team options left on my deal, so it looks like I’ll be here. Who knows, you never know in this business how anything can happen or how it will all shake out but I’ve loved my time here and hopefully look forward to being here for a long time. The organization is great. The staff is great and hopefully we can turn this thing around and just make the playoffs next year. That’d be nice.”
There were questions about Dinwiddie’s shooting ability in the past, but he’s shooting 38% from three-point range this season. “It’s like a lot of things,” Pistons coach/president Van Gundy said before the game. “He didn’t really get an opportunity with us. He’s getting an opportunity to go out there and play every night and he’s playing well. He’s playing very, very well, and I’m happy for him.”
Spencer Dinwiddie is happy to engage anyone on basically anything, from his play to his political beliefs. Understand, this dude is different. “It’s not so much the strict commentary that you get mad at, because if you miss a shot, you miss a shot, it’s a fact,” the third year player explains in this NetsDaily exclusive interview. “But when somebody says ‘I bet you don’t practice,’ they’re talking as if they know…when we’re in here every day. Nobody goes to your jobs and says ‘I guarantee you’re not putting the effort in.’ For me, it’s never out of a place of malice, I don’t really get mad at it because I understand that they don’t understand, so I just kind of ask questions back usually.”
“I enjoy the back and forth,” Dinwiddie added, flashing a grin. “Sometimes these people have great insight, positive or negative – but sometimes it’s crazy stuff, and I usually like responding to the crazy stuff because they make no sense. This is the same reason I have some political tweets too and people will comment back ‘MAGA’ or ‘stick to basketball,’ and say ‘you don’t know what you’re talking about,’” Dinwiddie continued, followed by a laugh. “It’s like because I play basketball, I don’t know that Donald Trump hid his tax returns? So I can’t have any amount of common sense because I’m an entertainer? What does this mean, what are y’all saying?”
