Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie says playing with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant will help him ‘figure out new dimensions’ in his game
Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie is excited about the prospect of playing with All-Stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
In a recent Q&A he held on Twitter, the five-year veteran answered a fan who asked him how KD and Kyrie’s arrival in Brooklyn will help him improve. According to Dinwiddie, playing with the two superstars will give him the opportunity to get better and discover new dimensions in his game.

Dinwiddie is already a rising star in the NBA, and learning from two of the best players in the league could help him hone his skills on both ends of the floor.
While Durant could have the patience to teach Dinwiddie and the other young guys on the team while he’s recovering from his Achilles injury, the same thing cannot be said about Irving. The All-Star guard struggled to take a lead role with the Boston Celtics last season, and one of the main reasons why is because he struggled to get along with the team’s young core.
Irving called out the Celtics youngsters after losing a game against the Orlando Magic back in January, saying that they do not know how to play championship-level basketball. Considering the fact that none of those guys have won a title, or even reached the NBA Finals, Kyrie should’ve been more patient both on and off the court.
If Irving has learned from his mistakes with the Celtics , then obviously a lot of great things will go the Nets’ way. If not, then it will be for Dinwiddie and Brooklyn to figure out a way to make it happen.
