Pride and discovery in Rio

October 11, 2013

Working 9-5 in Rio. Yes I know it is hard to believe, but the Wizards seized every moment from their Thursday here in Brazil. The team had a 10 AM practice Thursday  at HSBC Arena which will host Saturday's game a against the Bulls. After the practice the Wizards stayed at the arena for clinics and appearances. Yes a long day, but smiles all around.

The players appreciate being ambassadors for the NBA. Nene is taking special pride in being the host in his country and while the Wizards are discovering more about Brazil, they are learning a lot about each other.
