Nene’s influence on the team is obvious, but nowhere is it more important than his ability to connect with Seraphin.

Nene just needs to continue to mentor him,” Wittman said. “They sit next to each other in the locker room, they talk a lot, but [Seraphin’s] got to listen. Being guys that are not from here, Nene being from Brazil and Kevin being from France, Nene’s a guy that’s come over here and learned how to play and be a consistently good player for many years. Hopefully, that will help.”
