Nene - Birth of a superstar?



Okay, I know this may be a bit premature.  But I wanted a topic more fun than the Melodrama and the losers of three out of four.  So go with me, okay?

 

Watching the game yesterday, the thought came up.  Are we witnessing Nene blossom into a super-star?  He's scored in the mid-twenties in three of the last 5 games.   He absolutely looked like the better player against Stoudemire yesterday.  Stoudemire has more range, but Nene did pretty well against him on the defensive end.  On offense, Nene absolutely ate him alive.  Stoudemire should have fouled out.  The finally had to start double teaming him, and that is the next step Nene will have to take to become that 20-10 guy he could be.  He's not used to the double and it really shut him down.  He's got to learn to pass out quicker and to repost. And look at his shooting percentage.  Leading the NBA.  9-12 and 9-13 in his last two, including an end of the half three point attempt.

He certainly seems more aggressive lately.  Here's hoping he keeps it up. He certainly has the talent to be an all-star.  Perhaps now he also has the mental attitude necessary.
