The Nets have been a bit of a surprise this season, as they currently own the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference. They continue to play good basketball against Finals contenders, like the Rockets on Wednesday night.
Brooklyn defeated Houston on the road in an overtime thriller, and one of the main reasons the victory came in the first place was due to G Spencer Dinwiddie. The 25-year-old is having the best year of his career at the moment, and is solidifying himself as one of the young cornerstones of the team.
In fact, Dinwiddie signed a contract extension earlier this season, which will keep him in a Nets uniform for the near future. So New Yorkers should know about one of the hot, rising basketball stars in town, right? Well, maybe not...
