Y'know, Nick Young(notes) isn't the NBA's only deep thinker. Denver Nuggets center Nene Hilario(notes) often uses the approximately 16 minutes and 19 seconds of each game during which he's not on the basketball court to consider some the universe's great mysteries.
How were Stonehenge and the pyramids really built? Could syphilis have been the cause of Beethoven's deafness? Why did the networks pass on his can't-miss pilot, "Everybody Smiles at Maybyner"? How can you mend a broken heart? He's always got something serious going on upstairs. Still Brazilian waters run deep, gang.
So what do you think Nene's mulling? Best caption wins a pretty dumb trucker hat (NOTE: not really, and also, seriously, you shouldn't want that). Good luck.
In our last adventure: Raja and Deron have a serious discussion about important matters.
Winner, Big S: Bell: "Unlike your beard, I'm trying to make a connection."
Runner-up, Ben W: "You never had me! You never had your car!"
Second runner-up, Mike: Bell: "Your teapot needs a handle AND a spout. Like this. Look."
