Nets’ Spencer Dinwiddie takes pictures on plans to restart the NBA playoffs



Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie takes pictures on plans to restart the NBA playoffs

Spencer Dinwiddie made his presence felt on Twitter again.

The Brooklyn Nets guard on Saturday tweeted some sharp criticism from the restarting NBA and playoff plans, as the league tried to finish the season that had been closed since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier, the league confirmed a report that Disney World – specifically the extensive ESPN Sports World complex which houses several fields inside the Milkhouse Gym – would be the only site to start this season. The game, which is targeted to start again at the end of July, will be without fans.

Different postseason scenarios have also been discussed, including a 16 team playoff tournament – with the top eight teams from each conference going back to the end of the season and crowning the NBA champions.

It was this scenario that specifically caught the attention of Dinwiddie, who placed the issue of risk in economic terms.

“If we go 16 teams directly to the playoffs, will those teams be paid more for risk and bring revenue this year after Corona and China?” tweeted Dinwiddie, which is active on social media.

Needless to say, his tweet received a reaction from Twitterverse, but Dinwiddie has more answers ready.

– He responded to fans who wrote on Twitter that Dinwiddie was only talking about the problem of returning this in terms of money, tweeting: “Isn’t that what big business? I am a small business that is a cog in the larger lol business ”

– Responding to another Twitter request that said the players were releasing some of their influence in the conversation by saying that they wanted to play again, Dinwiddie fired at the owner.

“Yes, the team owner has been running a master class in media manipulation.”

This is not the first time that 27-year-old Dinwiddie talks about the economy of basketball. He has a lot of entrepreneurial interests and wants to involve fans in this activity.

On May 15, Dinwiddie started GoFundMe page with the stated goal of increasing 2625.8 bitcoin, equivalent to $ 24,632,600. He said he would take the minimum salary to play for any team the fans chose, if that number was met. If not, which is very possible, he will donate one of the money raised to charity.

In the fall, Dinwiddie wanted to monetize his three-year, $ 35 million contract now by allowing fans to buy bonds in future income. The League canceled the idea, but is currently reviewing the tokenizing of Dinwiddie’s contract. It is unclear whether this new idea will violate the collective bargaining agreement between the NBA and the players’ union.

Dinwiddie, who is under contract with the Nets next year, can opt out and become a free agent next summer.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
