Nene acquisition paying off for Wizards
CSN Washington reports:
Nene’s experienced presence on the court, combined with his classy, supportive presence in the locker room has brought a refreshing aura amongst the young players.
“This is a young team. They are still learning. We’re getting better,” Nene proclaimed after his first home game in a Wizards uniform, a nail-biting loss to the Pacers.
This display of support and encouragement has vaguely been seen around the team before Nene’s arrival and is something the team can build on as they try to positively close out yet another disappointing season.
A cancer survivor whose career endured a season-ending knee injury along with chronic back pains, Nene has unimaginably overcome adversity and become savior to a young team sorely in need of leadership.
