It may be the NBA offseason, but the social media beef never really wanes all that much.
That was on display Monday, when Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie and Knicks center Enes Kanter went at it on Twitter.
It all started when Metta World Peace made a (rather bold) prediction for the 2018-19 season, stating that the Knicks and Pacers would meet in the Eastern Conference Finals. Dinwiddie got wind of it, and laughed it off, stating that, in his mind, the Knicks aren’t even the best team in New York.
Kanter responded with the following tweet — saying that Dinwiddie “poked the wrong bear.”
Dinwiddie then sent the following tweet in response — clearly referencing how Kanter flip-flopped rather quickly in his interactions with LeBron James. Kanter took a few shots at James on social media earlier in the year, but not too long after, he actually attempted to recruit LBJ to the Knicks.
Fans have to love that the NBA news cycle, even in August, continues to provide entertaining exchanges between players.
