During his playing career in the NBA thus far, veteran guard Spencer Dinwiddie, currently of the Los Angeles Lakers, has played for five different teams and one of those teams twice, as he had two separate stints with the Brooklyn Nets.

Dinwiddie’s second stint with the Nets only lasted 74 games before he was bought out by the team and was free to sign with the Lakers as an unrestricted free agent in the buyout market.

The addition of Dinwiddie was thought to be a potential game-changer for the Lakers as he would bring some veteran leadership and a talented scorer off the bench who wants nothing more than to play for and contribute to a title contender.

Although Dinwiddie got off to a less-than-stellar start with the Lakers, he’s started to come into his own in Los Angeles, and he reflected on his second stint with the Nets before taking on his former team in Brooklyn on Sunday at Barclays Center, via Erik Slater of ClutchPoints.

“Beyond being one of the top assists guys on the Nets, I was one of the top assists guys in the league,” Dinwiddie said. “Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t. … People can say what they wanna say about me. … It is what it is.”

Clearly, there seems to be some bad blood between Dinwiddie and the Nets as the second stint came to an end in a way that he doesn’t seem too happy with.

Regardless of how it ended, the Nets are headed in one direction, while Dinwiddie may have found a team that wants to keep him around, which is likely his dream, with the Lakers being his hometown team.
