Spencer Dinwiddie says Brooklyn has ‘No Fear’ playing the Philadelphia 76ers and when looking at the series odds, Vegas strongly disagrees
Spencer Dinwiddie recently spoke on the Brooklyn Nets upcoming playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Brooklyn Nets lost to the Philadelphia 76ers in just five games during the 2018-2019 NBA playoffs. That team featured D’Angelo Russell, Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen, and Spencer Dinwiddie.
That team was also the sixth seed and honestly, none of that even matters because the Nets team this year is completely different and so are the latest version of the Sixers. The only remaining players on the Nets this year from the 2018-19 season, would be Dinwiddie and Joe Harris
Still, Dinwiddie had this to say about the Nets this year, which was basically pieced together after losing Kevin Durant at the NBA Trade Deadline back in February.
Spencer Dinwiddie: ‘No Fear’ playing the Philadelphia 76ers
“We’re more established,” Dinwiddie said. “That was a young team trying to find their way. We have a lot of guys who understand who we are in the NBA already. We’re trying to find our way as a unit. That one was more so we had a lot of guys trying to find their way as individuals in the league. Now we had great vibes, a bunch of great character guys. It wasn’t selfishness, but we still just kinda were wide-eyed and didn’t necessarily know.”
“You got guys on this team who went to the finals, conference finals, things of that nature, have experience, and have an appropriate respect for Philly obviously, but there’s no like fear or anything,” the Nets guard continued.
Okay fine. He’s really not wrong here.
The “No Fear” comment will certainly draw some eyes but really, it wasn’t that big deal.
The top four players on the 2018-19 team never appeared in a playoff game before they faced the Sixers that year. This season, you have Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson who joined the Nets via the Phoenix Suns, Dinwidde and Dorian Finney-Smith who arrived via Dallas, along with Clayton, O’Neale, Harris, and Seth Curry, who all have playoff experience.
Regardless, I hate to break it to Dinwiddie, who’s already having a rough day on social media after Kyle Kuzma buried him in a tweet thread, Vegas does not believe in the Nets at all during Round 1.
Dinwiddie and company should be very afraid.
