NBA Beef: Kyle Kuzma Holds Nothing Back in Post About Spencer Dinwiddie
As the competition heats up on the court with the start of the postseason, Kyle Kuzma and Spencer Dinwiddie are making sure it heats up off the court, too.
When asked about an ongoing beef with his old teammate on FanDuelTV, Dinwiddie had some thoughts. The veteran point guard for the Nets went on to call Kuzma out for focusing too heavily on his celebrity. He also didn’t hesitate to question his talent, saying that the Los Angeles Lakers traded him for a reason.
If we look at him and the way he approached life, fame, and all that stuff, you can see that his priorities tend to vary. Right, that’s why he dresses the way he does, approaches basketball the way he does, the comments he makes … You’re probably not even a third star on a good team because if you were the Lakers probably would have kept you. Part of the reason you left was to make more money. These things are fact … I played with the guys. We know what the priorities were,” Dinwiddie told Michelle Beadle.
Shortly after, Kuzma took to Twitter to respond to Dinwiddie’s thoughts. And to say he held nothing back would probably be an understatement.
After starting things off with a “Dinsihi**ie,” Kuzma immediately noted how the Dallas Mavericks traded Dinwiddie in what was his first full season with the team. He proceeded to point out that the Nets’ current playoff seed is primarily thanks to the work of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving before throwing out some of Dinwiddie’s poor stats with the Wizards.
If we’re being honest, it was a pretty solid comeback and an excellent display of pettiness. You can see the full thread here or below:
I’m not necessarily taking sides here because I do respect what both players bring to the floor, but it’s hard not to give Kuzma the win in this individual battle. He didn’t back down an ounce.
