Nene Rejected LeBron James And Then Posterized Him (VIDEOS)

Nene proved a far less hospitable host than President Barack Obama. A night after the Miami Heat were feted at the White House, Nene and the Wizards trounced LeBron James and reigning NBA champions in Washington.

On just the Heat's second offensive possession of the night, Nene let James know that he was in for a long night. The 6' 11" power forward emphatically rejected James' driving layup attempt.

With that rejection setting the tone, the Wiz jumped out to a 43-18 lead after one quarter and never looked back. In the final minutes of the fourth quarter, Nene provided the exclamation point on Washington's 114-97 win by posterizing James.

"They came here, whatever. Went to the White House, whatever," Nene said after the win, via The Associated Press. "We just came here to play."
