Spencer Dinwiddie On Not Getting Invited To Skills Challenge: 'Folks Don't Care About Me' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Feb 1, 2020 7:40 pm

Spencer Dinwiddie expressed his disappointment over not getting invited to the Skills Challenge during All-Star Weekend.


Dinwiddie won the Skills Challenge in 2018. He did not participate last year due to injury.


"Look at it like this: I won the Skills Challenge and didn't get invited back. What does that f---in' say? Have you ever met a winner of an award not get invited back? Now that s--t is pretty crazy. Folks don't care about me. I'm Spencer. Quit playin' ... I told you guys, it's a popularity contest," said Dinwiddie.


The participates for the Skills Challenge have yet to be officially announced.


Dinwiddie is averaging 21.4 points this season.

I agree, he should get a chance to defend his title. Sitting out last year probably hurt his chances at being invited back. People are fickle these days and have short memories.

Yes he may as well be asked back but 1. Who cares about the skill challenge.. 2. He is a multi millionaire having a whinge that it's a popularity contest it's all star weekend of course it is and so what..3. He is paid more than he ought to be as the stars enable a cap and a maximum salary via the players union.. and 4. Same as 2 it's all star weekend it's about who the fans want to see.. That's it who cares..

He should be invited back plain and simple. Let winners defend their titles.
Trust the Process it is our shot to be a solid franchise again, we are the originals we are the Philadelphia 76ers!

I like the skills challenge. Contestants actually try, and have to try in order to win, unlike the Allstar game; and they usually have a nice selection of players competing. Allstar Saturday Night is the ticket, we need more of that. More interesting competitions that are competitive. (They should add a 1 on 1 mini tourney, or a 3 on 3 player chosen tourney. Yeah, I know the players don’t have the balls to compete in such a thing)

The Sunday game just sucks since the “Allstars” don’t care to compete. Yeah, NOW it’s nothing but a popularity contest, like a prom. We get to watch the big names dance around and goof off while pretending to play some basketball. Whoo hoo.
