Report: Anderson Varejao Named Cavaliers Starter Over Tristan Thompson

Anderson Varejao

Now days removed from his team’s regular season opener, though, coach David Blatt has gone a different direction. According to a report by Northeast Ohio Media Group, Blatt named Anderson Varejao Cleveland’s fifth and final starter. Read More »

Report: Cavs’ Blatt Hasn’t Decided Between Thompson, Varejao At Center

Tristan Thompson, Joakim Noah, Anderson Varejao

We always thought that Anderson Varejao was a lock to start alongside Kevin Love in the frontcourt for the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers, but that assumption has proven wildly misguided. After David Blatt began Wednesday’s public scrimmage with Tristan Thompson as his team’s fifth starter, the Euroleague import admitted that he’s yet to decide who will open games at center.

LeBron James

When LeBron James announced his return to Cleveland last Friday, he said, “I’m not having a press conference or a party. After this, it’s time to get to work.” Well, before work, there was the matter of attending the FIFA World Cup Final in Brazil. Read More »

Cleveland’s 5 Worst Mistakes Since LeBron Left

Anthony Bennett

On July 8, 2010, LeBron James told the nation, on national television mind you, that he would be taking his “talents” to South Beach. The rest is history: LeBron went on to reach the NBA Finals three straight years, winning both of the last two seasons, and has a strong chance of three-peating this season. Cleveland went into depression; the Cavs tied the longest losing streak in professional sports (26 games, the longest in NBA history), and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert went crazy ex-girlfriend on us, publicly scorning LeBron for leaving a city that he has no actual connection to (LeBron is from Akron, not Cleveland… something many forget through all this).

The 10 Best Passing Centers In The NBA

Joakim Noah

The center position is becoming a role that emphasizes versatility.

Superstars like Bill Walton and Chris Webber–even though he normally manned the four-spot–exemplified the effective passing center, and their offenses instantly became more dangerous because of this ability.

Video: Anderson Varejao Strips Joakim, Fakes Behind-The-Back Pass & Slams It

Anderson Varejao, Joakim Noah

Confession time: we freakin’ love Anderson Varejao. The hair, the motor, the lithe, 6-10 Brazilian frame that bounces up and down and loves hitting the glass. His whole persona brings us joy. A friend of a friend used to run with him in Cleveland back when LeBron had just arrived in the league and Andy was riding the bench as the 12th man. She said Varejao was a ton of fun and very kind. Our affinity for him aside, Andy mutilated the Bulls on one sequence last night during Chicago’s reunion with Luol Deng in Cleveland. Varejao’s been healthy all year, and it’s nice to see him make plays like this still. Read More »

NBA’s Best Night For Big Men Since 1978

Anderson Varejao, DeAndre Jordan

NBA action on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day favored the big fellas inside the paint even though the league is increasingly becoming a perimeter, guard-oriented league. On Monday night, five players grabbed at least 20 rebounds in a game. It was the first time five NBA players had broken the 20-rebound plateau on the same night since the 1984-85 season. But those guys also scored at least 15 points, and it was the first time five players had achieved the 15-point, 20-rebound performance on the same night since way back before the contemporary game, in 1978.
