Spencer Dinwiddie moved on from the Brooklyn Nets and is now the new point guard for the Washington Wizards. Although the Wizards have not made it to the conference or NBA Finals in a couple of decades, they have always kept a dominant point guard.

Over the past years, Gilbert Arenas, John Wall, and Russell Westbrook have held down the point for the Wiz. While Dinwiddie is preparing to take over the backcourt alongside Bradley Beal, he wants the fans to know he is not like any of his predecessors.

“I’m not Gilbert, John or Russ. Those are all dudes with very interesting personalities,” Dinwiddie said Monday. “You’ve got some of the best players — obviously Russ, one of the best players to ever play in terms of the triple-doubles. You’ve got Gilbert, one of the best scorers of all time. You’ve got John, who had an extended run when you could argue he was the best point guard in the league.”


He would state that while he is not a superstar talent yet, he aims to bring a winning culture. “I respect everything that they did, but what I want to be known for is winning, and that’s what I hope to bring to the franchise.”

Dinwiddie also revealed he spoke with Beal, stating they are aiming to build something special together.

“I think right now we’re both willing to kind of take a little bit of a bet on each other and try to do something special. All we can kind of focus on is the now, and if plans change then they change, but we’re here now and have a really special chance.”

This upcoming season, joining Dinwiddie on the Wizards are Kyle Kuzma, Montrezl Harrell, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope coming over from the Los Angeles Lakers. Do the Wizards have a chance in the reloaded East?
