Spencer Dinwiddie, Kyle Kuzma beef is real and it’s spectacular

Spencer Dinwiddie and Kyle Kuzma were teammates for half a season in Washington.

That was enough to start a minor beef, which in the last 24 hours has blown up into a full-on steakhouse.

It all started in January when Dinwiddie suggested the Wizards were chasing stats for contracts — Kuzma is a free agent this summer — and not trying to win games. Kuzma fired back about the Nets trying to win.

Things ramped up this morning when Dinwiddie was on FanDuel’s “Run it Back” morning show with Michelle Beadle where he quoted Draymond’s “insecurity is loud” comment and took his shot at Kuzma.

“You know that you’re there shooting shots to try to get a contract. You’re probably not even a third star really on a good team because if you were the Lakers would have kept you.”

Kuzma wouldn’t let that stand and went on a Twitter rant.


You know this isn’t over.

Spencer Dinwiddie and what’s left of the Brooklyn Nets held on to the No.6 seed in the East and they are headed to the playoffs to take on the Philadelphia 76ers. It’s a long shot the Nets advance past that, but for the next couple of weeks Dinwiddie will have television cameras and microphones in his face to say what he wants. Which means this likely isn’t over.
