Speaking at the NBA All-Star Festivities in February, Dinwiddie didn’t exactly think the future was bright for his team’s crosstown rivals.
“You want a real answer?’’ Dinwiddie said. “Probably not. They’ll probably have a high draft pick. Unless they do something via trade or via free agency, which I don’t know if this free-agency class is that spectacular, they’re probably not going to be that good. We’ll see. I can’t tell the future. But more than likely, I mean Kevin Durant is coming back [next season]. And he’s Kevin Durant. He’s really good.’’
He even took a jab at Knicks center Mitchell Robinson for his penchant of getting into foul trouble. Dinwiddie tweeted out a picture of himself wearing a shirt featuring Robinson, but said "I would’ve put em on a shoe, but ima need him not to lead the league in fouls before I do that."
Speaking on the House of Highlights “Through the Wire” podcast this week, Dinwiddie explained why he pulls no punches when it comes to the Knicks.
“No, it’s not really shots. Like, I tell the truth. Y’all just don’t like truth and it turns into this whole big thing. Hey look, if y’all are buns, y’all are buns,” Dinwiddie joked. “Y’all got my guy Theo Pinson. I know y’all bench is going to be lively and dancing and stuff. It’s gonna be phenomenal to see. Still going to get your heads cracked. It is what it is.”
Dinwiddie averaged career highs in points (20.6), assists (6.8) and rebounds (3.5) this season, but he continues to throw down dunks – both off and on the court – on the Knicks, as well.
