Spencer Dinwiddie: Just to be clear I haven’t opted out and want to play like I told @ShamsCharania . Unfortunately I have been one of the cases that has various symptoms.

Maybe the statement that best sums up Dinwiddie comes from the bio on his Twitter page: Just a tech guy with a jumper. “Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely a little tongue-in-cheek,” Dinwiddie said of the sly self-description, in a conversation in April while the NBA was on a hiatus caused by the coronavirus. The league is set to resume play at the end of July. “My primary focus on a day-to-day basis is being a great basketball player. … But when I say that, it’s truly because I have a certain passion for tech, and because I understand it. I almost fit in with that community a little more than I do with the NBA.”
“In the basketball space, one of the things you can’t appear to be is non-focused,” he said. “Because I was a minimum player for the first four-and-a-half years of my career, you have to be focused, be the workman, be that guy, you know what I mean? “You can’t just go full bore, because you would seem to be, quote-unquote, distracting from the goal of winning. Once you solidify yourself and get to the second, third contract and have a high level of production, now when I speak about these things, it’s not seen as a distraction. Because I’ve already proven myself.”
By selling off stakes in the contract, Dinwiddie could get access to liquidity now that otherwise wouldn’t have been available for years—liquidity that could then go toward other investments. And investors in the token would receive annual dividends, with the guaranteed nature of NBA contracts making it a relatively low-risk proposition. For Dinwiddie, who was integral in crafting the offering, it would also have the added elegance of streamlining a marketplace he sees as rife with inefficiency. “People always act as if the NBA is where all the value is really retained, and the current dynamic, they try to make it seem that way,” he said. “But really, they’re brokers within the system. The consumer is purchasing access to the asset, and the asset is the athlete. So the more you can bring the consumer and the asset closer together, the more you bring value to the system.”

Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma tweeted, “Looks like a tracking device.” “Does Adam Silver wear one with us while we’re all in there,” Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie asked on Twitter. To be clear though, these devices are optional – an issue that has been collectively bargained between the league and the NBPA.
This didn’t get him an All-Star berth, which he would’ve appreciated as validation for his family and vindication because “that shit’s in Chicago,” where he was cut before the 2016-17 season. And his positive press usually came with a side of speculation about his future: Next year, with Kevin Durant and Irving in the picture, is there a place for a pick-and-roll guard like him in Brooklyn? Dinwiddie’s answer is yes.
“First, I’m a basketball player,” he said, “and I try to have the most well-rounded game possible. But people forget when I was recruited out of high school, I was recruited as a passer.” He continued by walking me through his career, explaining that he only became a scorer in college because that’s what the team needed. The same was true in Brooklyn. He cited his 4:1 assist-to-turnover ratio in 2017-18.
“With Kyrie and KD, if you’re telling me I get to come out here and pass to two phenomenal scorers and get 10 assists a game and maybe be in second gear a lot of times with my scoring, I’m fine,” he said. “If I average 14 and 10 and we win a title, but KD averages 35 and Ky averages 25 or whatever it would be, like, I’m good with that. I’m more than fine with that. That’s more in line with how I played the game growing up than it is a lot of the other spurts and seasons that I’ve put together since I’ve been older.”
Shams said that the Nets opening was created because a number of Nets players —not just Kevin Durant and Irving— weren’t crazy about Atkinson’s offense. “There were a few things,” said The Athletic reporter. “Let’s start early in training camp. The offense he still wanted to go with was something that didn’t vibe with his best players, from Kyrie Irving to Kevin Durant to Spencer Dinwiddie on … and so forth … which was a free for all offense. It wasn’t like a set regime, a set style. He still wanted to play the way they were kind of playing with D’Angelo Russell. And I don’t think guys went with that.
Spencer Dinwiddie: … so here we go, I’ll explain this again for hot take Twitter. The question was revolving around what a less athletic KD could possibly look like because of how serious an Achilles injury is, especially for Bball players. Let me also first preface this with I don’t know what stage of rehab he’s at, I don’t have insider information, I don’t know when he’s going to return to play or any of that. This is my personal speculation from a basketball fan perspective. (Yes I appreciate HOFs, which he is) At 80% athleticism or so, which takes away his hyper mobility/dexterity for a 7fter. Who has a game that was built around mid post iso, pick/pop, a unblockable left foot turn around fade and overall extreme revolutionary proficiency in terms of a jumper/touch at that size. Sounds a lot like Dirk to me… and at the end of the day we’re comparing clear cut HOFs. Y’all acting like I said dirk was a bum or something

Spencer Dinwiddie understands that expectations are raised to championship if Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving return for the Orlando playoffs. But the Nets guard is unsure what his star teammates will decide. “That’s the billion dollar question. But that’s not something I can answer,” Dinwiddie said Wednesday morning on ESPN’s “First Take.” “I know they’re both working really hard. They’re two of the hardest working in the NBA on the court, and two phenomenal players. If they are able to return and that’s the decision they make, our aspirations turn from playoffs to championship. “If they’re not able to return, which they’ve pretty much said that’s kind of the stance that they’re taking, we still want to be a team that grinds to get to the playoffs and makes a run in the playoffs. But we also understand the talent they add with being two of the top-10 players in the league and KD being, in my opinion, the greatest scorer of all time.”

“When I was talking the GOAT for me means highschool, college, pro dominance, longevity, all of that. Kareem I don’t think lost in highschool. I think he was 85 and 2 in college, won a championship every year, was the best player every single year. They changed the rules for him. That’s why he got the sky hook. He comes to the league, obviously dominates, has the most points of all time, and things like top 5 or top 10 rebounding. He has 5 rings. His career speaks for itself. Played 20 years. “But it’s that 30-year span of just complete and utter basketball dominance in how define it is taking the big picture view. I don’t argue MJ’s pinnacle of dominance. I definitely don’t argue that. I want no smoke MJ fans. Everybody got mad, I was like ‘let me just explain myself’.”

At least one player, Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie, has raised one of the issues the league and the union will have to navigate if the league, as some have suggested, returns and goes straight to the playoffs. “If we go 16 teams directly to playoffs do those teams get paid more for the risk and carrying this years revenue after Corona and China?” Dinwiddie, who is not the designated players’ union representative for the Nets, posted on Twitter, referring to the loss of revenue from the league’s rift with the Chinese government.
If he somehow hits the goal, Dinwiddie says he will allow the fans to determine his next destination and he’ll sign a one-year deal with that team. He’s expected to hit free agency in 2021. If his fundraising falls short, Dinwiddie said he’ll donate all the money to charity. He announced the project with the understanding he probably won’t reach the goal.

Storyline: GOAT Debate
An NBBF official told ESPN that conversations had been going on for at least a year about the Nets star, who doesn’t have any obvious connection to the country. “His name has been under consideration since last year,” the official said. “We started talking about two years ago because we had some areas where we have weaknesses and the point guard area was a major one.”
Acquiring the Nets guard is another piece to their puzzle and may certainly not be the last. NBBF president Musa Kida explained: “New Orleans Pelicans centre Jahlil Okafor is also reportedly interested in fighting for a shirt. There are many top players out there who are eligible to play for us while some may also be thinking of naturalization as allowed by FIBA rules.”
