Brooklyn Nets

Superlatives

Most Likely To Brighten Your Day — Spencer Dinwiddie

Dinwiddie is the type of guy who plays with a chip on his shoulder every night. The former second-round pick has always felt like he had something to prove. Even after finishing third in the Most Improved Player voting last season, Dinwiddie wasn’t satisfied.

He’s the gritty, no-frills type of player that Nets fans should absolutely embrace. Madison Square Garden’s shadow looms large over the Barclays Center and even when the Nets are the better team (they are), the Knicks dominate the city and make all the headlines. Dinwiddie challenged the orange and blue’s supremacy over the summer and there’s a rivalry brewing in Gotham.

From his attitude to his hard-nosed play, Dinwiddie is a player that Nets fans shouldn’t take for granted.

Most Likely To End Up On Sportscenter — Jarrett Allen

This one could go both ways for Allen unfortunately. Let’s start with the bad. Allen is a high-flying rim protector and the occasional posterization comes with the territory. When you’re job is to protect the rim, sometimes you’re going to get dunked on.

But fortunately for Allen, he’s capable of doing the posterizing from time to time. Allen is a rim-running big man who can soar above the rim for a lob at any time. This year, he and Russell should see a lot of pick and roll action together, setting Allen up for a few posters in the process.

Allen could have won the category for Best Hair as well, but Most Likely To End Up On Sportscenter seems more fitting for a basketball preview.

Most Valuable Role Player — Joe Harris

This is a tough one to choose. The Nets have a slew of guys that fill valuable roles, but look for Harris to take the next step from solid role player to an invaluable three-point assassin. Harris is coming off the best year of his career. He averaged double figures for the first time ever and he shot an impressive 41.4 percent from deep.

Harris returned to Brooklyn on a relatively team-friendly deal because he feels so comfortable in Brooklyn and playing in Kenny Atkinson’s system. Harris should see an uptick in his three-point attempts this season and if he keeps his three-point shooting above 40 percent, he’ll be a dangerous threat whenever he steps on the court.
