The NBA is the gift that keeps on giving. Even though the 2019-20 season was put on hold due to the global coronavirus pandemic, the traditional drama took no vacation, as evidenced on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the NBA Central Twitter account posted a video of New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson showing off some serious handles for a seven-footer. But crosstown rival Spencer Dinwiddie slowed everyone's roll on Wednesday morning, saying that while Robinson has a talented step-back jumper, the Knicks would never let him be the primary ball carrier (or try any of this nonsense) under any circumstances.
A Brooklyn Net criticizing the Knicks? Oh man, here come the pitchforks and torches!
After Dinwiddie's tweet, a Knicks fan went full nuclear in the replies. This individual actually posted a highlight reel of the Brooklyn guard missing a variety of step back 3-point shots, Harden-style.
Of course, Dinwiddie had a clap-back suggesting that even though he's missed, he still has 16 game-winning shots.
If there's a lesson to be learned, it's to never come at an NBA player about his individual misses -- they've just got to move on from those, constantly.
The only way this situation could get more awkward if fans vote for Dinwiddie to sign with the Knicks in 2022 via bitcoin. Is it wrong that we want this?
