It’s no secret that Spencer Dinwiddie, after signing a three-year, $62 million deal with the Washington Wizards, did not enjoy his time in D.C. at the very least. And the feeling is mutual; it’s apparent that Dinwiddie’s former teammates in Washington don’t like him one bit either. This much was evident in Kyle Kuzma’s reaction following the Washington Wizards’ surprising win over Dinwiddie’s Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.
Spencer Dinwiddie couldn’t help but be salty following the Mavs’ dispiriting loss to the confounding Wizards. The scoring guard proceeded to throw some serious shade towards his former team following the loss, saying that they’re “not trying to play winning basketball” and that they’re “playing for nothing for real”. But Kyle Kuzma is not the type to back down from such scathing words.
Posting on his official Twitter account, Kuzma clapped back at Dinwiddie’s claims, saying that Dinwiddie’s like a pot calling the kettle black.
“The funny thing is they don’t play winning basketball 🤣🤣🤣✌🏽✌🏽✌🏽👋🏽🤡,” Kuzma wrote.
Outside of Luka Doncic’s nightly MVP exploits, it’s difficult to disagree with Kyle Kuzma on this one. Despite yet another 41 point performance from the Slovenian wunderkind, the Mavs were not able to come out on top yet again. It’s difficult to envision just how much better Doncic could be and yet the Mavs remain nothing more than a middling team. Just how awful would the Mavs be without their talisman?
Kuzma could talk his talk too, since he scored 30 points to lead the way for the Wizards. The Wizards may be facing criticisms for their decision to give away Rui Hachimura for scraps in an attempt to re-sign Kuzma in free agency. However, Kuzma could very well render those criticisms moot if he continues to play at this level and then he decides to re-up in Washington.
