Houston's D'Antoni: Nene 1 of those players you have to have

HOUSTON (AP) Nene has spent 15 years in the NBA and many still struggle in pronouncing his name.

Count ABC's broadcasting team of Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson among the offenders. As Houston's backup center made play after play on Sunday they repeatedly called him "NAY-NAY," something many of his teammates also do routinely.

It's been happening for years, but for the record the proper pronunciation is "neh-NAY" according to the Rockets media guide.
