Without Okafor, it's even more important for Nene to stay healthy. That's been an issue. Nene had games where he looked like the old Nene last season, and games where he looked like a shell of Nene. At his best, he makes an impact at both ends of the floor with his mobility, strength, athleticism and finishing ability. He still has the same physical mentality, but the question is whether he can do it every night anymore.
I thought coach Randy Wittman was going to get fired at Christmas, but his guys didn't quit on him. When everyone got healthy, they started to play well. No one would say Wittman is James Naismith, but he is underrated. His relationship with Wall is what will make or break him.
