Dinwiddie and his team have created Calaxy, short for creator galaxy, a mobile app expected to go live in late October.
On the app, creators and influencers will be able to sell digital blockchain-backed tokens integrated with digital contract company ChainLink that won’t just sell bonds like what Dinwiddie sold earlier this year. Tokens will also be used to redeem interactions with Calaxy’s creator network (like a virtual basketball camp or an online chat with Dinwiddie), speculate on future value and some will be dividend producing, the 27-year-old told me. He’s starting a Series A round of funding in two weeks and is aiming for a nine-figure valuation.
Dinwiddie hopes Calaxy will be the future of community engagement for the creator economy similar to how Cameo helps celebrities monetize their fame and how OnlyFans helps its users monetize other assets. He said that several NBA players, two singers and WNBA player Imani McGee-Stafford are already on board.
Not exactly news, and maybe I’m reading too much into it, but seems like he thinks his time in BK is over.
Solid may be a charitable description of Spencer as a defender.I know it's not going to happen but if Spencer were to somehow end up in Denver taking Harris spot it would make us a much better team.
Denver's stars are going to be Jokic and Murray, that's already determined. We are all hoping that MPJ can continue his development and become a third option offensively to take the heat off the stars. Add Spencer and you would have a perfect compliment to Denver's existing players.
He doesn't have a star attitude but he has star potential. He's happy scoring 15 if his team wins the game but he can score 30 if you need him too do it. He also adds another better ballhandler than they have with Harris and is a solid defend as well.
He's not a great defender but he can and does play it. He would add that consistent catch and shoot ability, he would also add a guy who can go to the rim effectively.Solid may be a charitable description of Spencer as a defender.
There's no need to add offense to the roster, unless it's a consistent catch and shoot off ball player.
The downgrade in D from Harris to Spencer would be significant, and it would hurt.
You have to think so. He is mentioned in most rumored trade deals. He is a good point guard that is great creating on his own and scoring. With Kyrie and KD (plus any other potential star) there won't be any need for someone to create on their own. An elite defender would be a better fit for the Nets. It's too bad since Spencer was a big reason Kyrie ended up at the Nets.Harden is trying to force a trade to the Nets. Would Spencer be a part of that or some combination of trades that would send Harden to NJ?
