    Default Brazilians in the NBA 2011-2012

    Let's start with Denver Nuggets center Nene Hilario who opted out of the final year of his contract; with just hours before the NBA Lockout to become an unrestricted free agent.

    So he opts out from Denver, and opts out of Brasil National team. Nene is becoming a douchebag

    According to Chris Tomasson of ESPN, Nene is open to re-signing with the Denver Nuggets after the Lockout.

    Unrestricted Free Agent Nene Hilario stated that money is not his goal for signing with a team after the lockout. Hilario was quoted in the Denver Post:

    "After nine years, I have goals and I'm a team player. I'm very competitive. I want to accomplish everything. It's a big opportunity, and it's the only one in my life to be a top free agent. So I want to enjoy this moment. If people think it's about money, they're wrong. I've saved my money. I could retire today. I don't need to prove points. I like it a lot here."

    Nene Wants Out of Denver?

    Two things can support that scenario:

    1. Nene opted to be a free agent and rejected the contract offer.

    2. Prior to the lockout, Nene said that it was not about the money that influenced his decision to be a free agent. Nene wanted to play for a winning team.

    Let's see if this will somehow be true. New Jersey Nets, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers I don't see many contenders in that list.

    Andy is having an amazing season so far. Really nice to see him taking the central spot of the team.
