The NBA, more than any other sports leagues, has empowered its players to have fun on social media. Few players have had more fun with this than Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who enjoys the opportunity to be engaging on Twitter. This has led to Dinwiddie’s online profile growing as he’s become one of the best sixth men in the league.
Dinwiddie had a pretty good afternoon on Sunday by nature of being employed by the Nets. Before free agency opened up, basketball fans learned that Brooklyn will land a trio of players on the open market: Kyrie Irving, DeAndre Jordan, and most notably, Kevin Durant. In response to all of this, Dinwiddie put his tweeting shoes on and got to posting. (ED. NOTE: we do not know if Spencer Dinwiddie owns tweeting shoes.)
Immediately after word of the Durant deal hit social media, Dinwiddie, who reports indicated was set to be part of the team’s meeting with Irving on Sunday, gave the basketball world a thumbs up.
From there, he called out those who were critical of him signing a three-year extension worth $34 million with the team last season.
And of course, as a person who has a vested interest in good things happening to the Nets, Dinwiddie took a moment to laugh at the New York Knicks, which had reportedly wanted Durant for months, if not year, but could not land the plane.
Dinwiddie will presumably take some time to go speak to Irving and let whatever other chips have to fall in place, which would probably take him away from Twitter for a bit. But we are confident that he’ll eventually get back to posting to further celebrate his newest teammates … and, of course, to get some jokes off at the expense of the Knicks.
