HoopsHype Kevin Seraphin rumors

“I was very clear to him [Saturday] about how he played,” Nene said. Against Chicago, Seraphin scored 12 points and had six assists, but he got to the free throw line just once. “He played much better,” Nene said, comparing Seraphin’s performance against the Bulls to an outing he’d had two games earlier against Cleveland, when Seraphin had just four points, no rebounds, and no trips to the line. After that game, Nene said he had gotten mad at Seraphin and told him to start playing better. “There are a lot of things he needs to clean up,” Nene said. “He has a lot of bad habits he needs to fix.” Washington Times

The Wizards had just lost their eighth straight game, an 87-84 defeat to the Cavaliers, and Seraphin was hardly noticeable with four points and no rebounds in 12 minutes. The third-year forward rolled his chair over to talk with the 11-year NBA veteran and got an earful. “He was really mad at me,” Seraphin said. “He’s like the leader right now. He’s trying to help the team the best way and he really thinks I’m an important player for this team and I’ve been struggling for like the last five games and he told me that. “He told me straight up, ‘You should play more than 12 minutes.’ I’m supposed to be ready for the game. I’m supposed to play good. He said, ‘Maybe if you were playing good, maybe we got more chances to win the game.’ That’s what he told me, he was just like, he was mad.” CSNWashington.com

Forward David West made back-to-back jumpers to help the Pacers hold on and the Wizards had to once again discuss coming up short in a game that they could’ve won if not for a poor execution down the stretch and an even poorer start. “Always the same story,” Kevin Seraphin said after scoring 13 points off the bench. “We have to fight all the game to come back. But that’s difficult. We play some good teams. This is the NBA. That’s a league with no mercy. If you don’t start right, you already lost the game.” Washington Post

Wizards people talk about Seraphin’s strong work ethic; he actually enjoys being coached. Fans should look for Seraphin to start drawing double teams regularly. Then, sit back and watch as he beats them with his nifty footwork and nice shooting touch. You may not want to leave your seat when Seraphin has the ball down low. You just may miss seeing a great jump-hook shot. Washington Post

I knew that Kevin Seraphin had a large tattoo on his back. But I wasn’t sure what it meant, so last week I finally asked him. Which is how I learned that this elaborate design was actually the first (and only) tattoo of his life. “The tattoo guy was like, seriously?” Seraphin told me. “You know what you’re doing? For your first tattoo, a big one like that? I was like yeah.” Washington Post

If Kevin Seraphin isn’t playing well, he could blame lack of nutrition. On Saturday he tweeted a pic of his dinner, clearly unhappy with the cost of his measly portion of salmon. Monday night, things weren’t much better for the big man. “What? For $21?” I heard from behind me in the locker room. I turned around and Kevin Seraphin was sitting in front of his locker looking at a portion of pasta the size of his fist and shaking his head. To be fair, he has a sizeable fist, but he couldn’t believe he paid $21 for it. “They act like I’m rich,” he laughed. Washington Post

This is just one moment from the Kevin Seraphin YouTube video library that particularly entertained me, but there are plenty more. Please do take a look. It would potentially be even more entertaining if you speak French. There is dancing, and funny costumes, and lots of people saying hilarious things in French. Washington Post
