Nenê Rumors

All NBA Players
Nene, you’re someone who’s spent a lot of time with John Wall over the years. You know him better than most people. What is something you know about him that others don’t? Nenê: What I can say for four and a half years of playing with John in DC. He’s an awesome person. He’s a humble person who treats people well. Ever since I got traded from the Nuggets to Washington, he accepted me and he’s a great teammate. He’s a fun guy. About his ability and talent, he’s sharp. A great and acute passer, has great vision, he anticipates movement and is fast.
Nene, you’re someone who’s spent a lot of time with John Wall over the years. You know him better than most people. What is something you know about him that others don’t? Nene: What I can say for four and a half years of playing with John in DC. He’s an awesome person. He’s a humble person who treats people well. Ever since I got traded from the Nuggets to Washington, he accepted me and he’s a great teammate. He’s a fun guy. About his ability and talent, he’s sharp. A great and acute passer, has great vision, he anticipates movement and is fast. The big question is the injury that he had and after two years without playing — people will pay attention to that. But for his skill and ability, to finish, create space, dribble, pass and all those, people expect to see that. To play with him and see all those passes, the way he enjoys his teammates and makes other players better, he’s gonna do great things for the Rockets.
You also played with James Harden, another talented guard. Now you get to see them together — what do you think about that? Nene: Both of them! It’s hard to say how things will be, but as a former teammate of both, I enjoyed playing with both of them. That was a nice time, I have friendships with both of them. Good things are about to come. I just hope they play together, trust each other, and build chemistry. All the other teammates will need that chemistry, love that they share, and the energy. When you let the game dictate what you need to do, it’s easy. But to talk about James, after Jordan, he’s the best player that plays his own way. John Wall is so fast, man. He’s a real talent. The kind of player that anticipates moves before they happen and a great teammate.
