Dinwiddie wants to be the next Tony Stark.
The Brooklyn Nets have been somewhat of a pleasant surprise in the NBA this season. Kind of like what the Sacramento Kings are doing out west, the Nets are maintaining a playoff pace and sit in sixth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 32-31. One of the reasons why the team is doing so well is Spencer Dinwiddie who is averaging 17.2 points per game this season. While he's missed the last 14 games with an injury, he will be coming back to the lineup tonight against the Charlotte Hornets. While Dinwiddie is only 25 years old, he is already excited about what he might end up doing with his retirement.
During an interview on the HoopsHype Podcast with Alex Kennedy, Dinwiddie said that he plans on building a fully-functional Iron Man suit. In the clip below, Dinwiddie acknowledges that it could cost him up to $100 million but he's still willing to get it done.
Dinwiddie is in for a three-year contract extension with the Nets worth $34.4 million. Considering his project will cost him 9 digits, he's going to need to get his money up quickly. Regardless, it would be interesting to see a former NBA star flying around in an Iron Man suit.
This revelation isn't too surprising though. Dinwiddie has shown just how ambitious he is as he already has his own sneaker brand and has made it clear that he'd rather be independent then sign with a brand like Nike.
