Dudley is one of the most active participants in social media in the NBA. He was nominated for the HoopsHype “2012 Tweeter of the Year,” an award won by his new teammate Jamal Crawford. However, he did not immediately join the Twitter-sphere. Dudley said future Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal got him into it when the two were teammates in Phoenix. “Another thing that’s cool is something that Shaq kind of got me into, is connecting with fans,” Dudley explained. “My whole thing is, I wish when I was a kid, that I could have got free tickets. I never went to NBA games or baseball games, so it’s a way to connect with the fans.” NBA.com

Q: Doc, you've been a part of big splashes before, and I have to imagine that as Chris (Paul) and those guys were introduced (at the Wednesday press conference in Los Angeles) that the presser with KG crossed your mind at some point. Does this experience remind you of that one at all in terms of the major makeover and instant expectation? Doc Rivers: "Well, Chris is going to be a Hall of Famer, and so should Blake (Griffin) and DJ (DeAndre Jordan), hopefully, but we were getting (surefire future Hall of Famers). Paul was and Ray and Kevin are, so in that terms, that day is bigger just because of those three guys. You just don't bring those three guys together very often. This was neater in one way in that it was more about the key guys, signing Chris back, bringing Matt back, and getting Darren Collison and JJ Redick and Jared Dudley, it's more that we're building this team, and that was a great message … I couldn't have asked for a better day."
