Brooklyn Nets PG Spencer Dinwiddie continues his beef with the New York Knicks, this time commenting on the behavior of their fans.
Spencer Dinwiddie has a history of fueling the crosstown rivalry between the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks.
Back in August, Dinwiddie let his Twitter Fingers get loose, stating that the Knicks “weren’t even the best team in NY.”
Malcontent Enes Kanter fired back online, stating that Dinwiddie “poked the wrong bear.”
Based on the Nets’ strong performance this season, it appears that Dinwiddie’s heavy statements from August have carried some weight.
As a result, on Jan. 24, Dinwiddie was back it again.
When asked about his interactions with fans of the New York Knicks, Dinwiddie let off a particularly prickly statement.
“All the time. All the time. They blow up my feed all the time.” Dinwiddie said to Brian Lewis, “‘Bad game.’ When the Knicks do anything of a remote positive nature, I hear about it.”
Dinwiddie, Brooklyn’s vocal leader, clearly basks in the attention from his doubters.
The New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets face off tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game is located at the Barclays Center and is their fourth matchup of the season.
Thus far, the Nets have won two of the three games. With a five-game winning streak on the line and bragging rights in a growing rivalry, one can only assume that Brooklyn will bring the full artillery.
Unfortunately, Spencer Dinwiddie will not be available for the game. He is currently out with a torn ligament in his right thumb and may require surgery.
It’s a shame, too. Dinwiddie has averaged 17.1 points per game on 51.3 percent shooting against the rival squad.
Regardless, Dinwiddie will be on the bench, cheering on his exciting, young teammates.
Not to mention, Dinwiddie will surely be antagonizing Knicks fans and players alike.
