Brazilian has had run-ins with Bulls in recent years…
Washington Wizards center Nene has made his feelings towards the Chicago Bulls pretty clear, after insisting that he hated the franchise.

The towering Wizards star has had his issues with the likes of Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler in recent years which has earned them all ejections after getting tangled up in messy brawls.
The two feuding franchises even somehow managed to get into an altercation during a pre-season game last year, and so their rivalry has certainly heated up as they both battle for a high playoff seeding in the Eastern Conference.
As a result, it will come as no surprise to the Bulls that Nene doesn’t particularly like them that much, and he made it pretty clear when talking to reporters on Monday.
Nene: “I don’t want to talk about Chicago. You know I hate them. You can put that.”

It won’t be long before they are able to renew that rivalry as the two teams square off on Wednesday night, but unfortunately Butler will be missing with an elbow injury that has sidelined him for the next three weeks at least.
Nevertheless, Nene will still have Noah for company as the two centers will undoubtedly get into it at the United Center, and he can be fairly confident that the Bulls star will have heard his comments and is ready for the challenge ahead.
