A few weeks ago, when Nene came out and said that our players were not being held accountable and lacked respect for the game, I criticized him for publicly stating the issue without stepping up and attempting to solve it himself, pointing to the fact that prior to the interview we heard nothing from Nene about his own attempts to establish accountability in the locker room. Bullets Nation in Exile and a few others disagreed, claiming that I should givee Nene the benefit of the doubt due to his history in Denver of being a high-character guy. I was asked that if word came out that Nene was leading efforts to change the culture of the locker room that I would change my position, and I responded "full 180 and fanpost apology."
If you read the Washington Times article that was posted today, you'll see that Nene has been teaming up with Okafor to help Seraphin overcome his bad habits, including his poor post defense, and inability to get to the free throw line. As such, I now have to eat my words. My bad, Nene, for doubting your commitment to the team. Its been an incredibly disappointing season thus far, and its really refreshing to hear that you havent quite given up on trying to make things a little bit better.
