Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie wants to build a working Iron Man suit when he retires
It is good to have goals. Even professional athletes need to aspire to something after their careers end. Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie seems to have his post-basketball goals all set.
According to Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype, Dinwiddie wants to build an Iron Man suit once his career ends. There is a lot of science involved, but he can certainly get it done.
When @SDinwiddie_25 retires, he wants to build a fully functional Iron Man suit. He's 100% serious. He said he'll take engineering courses and assemble a team to help. He explains exactly what he wants and what he'll need. Iron Man talk starts at 28:35: https://t.co/4KElr8fVJp

It’s poetic in a way. Iron Man is a hero saving the masses from evil on a daily basis. Dinwiddie will hopefully be returning soon from injury to help the Nets complete their playoff run. It is not a perfect comparison, the population has roughly zero percent chance of surviving against the evils out there…the Nets have a better than zero percent chance of making the playoffs.
Right now the Nets are sixth place in the Eastern Conference, three games ahead of the eighth-place Charlotte Hornets.
Dinwiddie is very close to his returning after tearing ligaments in his thumb back in January. Prior to injury, he was a top bench player in the league.
Coming off of injury, he is ready for retirement. Well, not quite. The 25-year-old Nets guard is only in his fifth year in the league after being a second-round pick by the Detroit Pistons in 2014.
It isn’t far-fetched to compare some of these NBA players to superheroes. They can do some freakishly athletic things. Dinwiddie just wants that image to become real. Let’s all just hope he does finish it because it will look amazing, and if it functional that would be even better.
