Spencer Dinwiddie will hilariously earn an extra dollar if the Mavericks win the NBA title

The Mavericks are only halfway to a championship, but you’d forgive Spencer Dinwiddie if he started to look ahead.

Dinwiddie, of course, was traded to Dallas near this year’s NBA trade deadline. While there was a bit of a rough start to his tenure with the Mavs, there don’t seem to be any issues now. The 29-year-old veteran has been a rock of late, most recently complementing the star power of Luka Doncic as Dallas upset the heavily-favored Suns on their floor.

Now, if Dallas manages to upend the Warriors (-5.5) in the Western Conference Finals and then beat either the Heat or Celtics in the NBA Finals, Dinwiddie has a lucrative title bonus waiting for him:

One dollar. As in… 20 nickels. 10 dimes. 100 pennies.

Yes, that’s not a misprint.

It’s not clear whether Dinwiddie is serious about the dollar bonus for a title or if this was something he merely accepted while still negotiating with the Wizards last off-season. Because, you know, as usual, the Wizards aren’t winning any games in June or May for a while.

But hey: Even with inflation, a dollar probably still gets you a decent candy bar! A ring and a crunchy Twix. What a potential combo for Dinwiddie and the Mavs.
