Webster serenades camera with Christmas tunes

The Wizards delivered their most lopsided win of the season against Detroit on Saturday. The same night marked the debut of Nene's bobblehead. Coincidence? Probably not.

Actually, the mini version of the Brazilian big man had quite the busy evening.

For starters, Lil Nene  and his clones were out in mass 

(Yes, I'm borrowing from the great lil Penny ads. Deal with it. Besides, who doesn't want a commercial with both Nene's? Nobody cool, that's for sure)

Once he got settled into the Verizon Center scene, all smiles, not to mention floppy hair

Next, he was ears during a timeout when Wizards coach Randy Wittman drew up a play.

After big Nene delivered seven points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 19 minutes versus the Pistons, Lil Nene helped his namesake conduct postgame interviews. 

Now, it's possible that jokes were made during the evening about tiny foot bath's and crutches for the little man were sold separately. Ultimately  or at least hopefully, most of the Lil Nene's made it home after the joyous evening just like all hope the Wizards power forward and his oft-injured Achilles and right foot survived the latest game.

In reality, we know at least one did not. 

Nobody is allowed to say or even think of sentences that include the word "harbinger" and the phrase "of things to come". Besides, based on how expertly the Wizards performed with the combination of big and Lil Nene, that duo is not allowed to break apart.
