After the sudden and tragic ending of Linsanity, Dinsanity continues apace in Brooklyn. I don’t want to sound like I’m happy that someone got injured, but I wasn’t going to get to do Jeremy Lin videos, and DinDins wasn’t going to get the playing time to show his stuff. Showcasing the unleashed talents of Spencer Dinwiddie on a regular basis is a dream I never thought I’d live out, unless I transitioned to doing D-League videos instead.
It’s hard to tell, at this early stage, if Dinwiddie is actually good or not. History is replete with players who had good stretches and then sputtered out, never to be good again save for the rare single-game outburst. Whether he ends up being a consistent starter or regresses back into brown-gray sludge, we can always say that we enjoyed to the greatest extent that time when he put up some decent stats and made the Nets look a bit like a basketball team.
