I understand the desire to play in the Olympics, but his 1st priority should be to Washington. Now he is resting his foot and healing. He should of been doing that all season. Is that the veteran leadership he's providing, that he puts himself before this team?
Totally agree with both you.
Ted/EG may have actually assembled a pretty decent team with a young core.
As for Nene. That is the one thing he has done to date that I didn't like. Just one thing, but a big one.
But I like that Randy has him traveling with the team. It keeps them connected. Specially the way he and Kevin connect. And it should be a constant reminder to him of what his first obligation is. It can't be fun for Nene to be around all this and know that he can't help because he made a bad discussion over the summer. I know it was a hard decision to make. You want to play for your country. But sometimes we have to make tough unselfish decisions and set your priorities in the right order.
Hopefully we get good news tomorrow.
