I know that everyone hates Varejao, and I can’t say that I don’t. But after a few years of hardcore fantasy basketball under my belt I have come to realize something. If you want to win, you have to put emotions aside and just take the flat out best player. And you know what? Sometimes that nets you a very nice player that many other teams looked over. So if you take out the emotion factor, doesn’t obtaining Varejao make sense? He is exactly what we need on this team. An energy guy off the bench, who is not only a great team defender, but one of the best one on one post defenders in the league. He rebounds, scores when the opportunity presents itself, and plays within himself. He is a great teammate, and would fit in nicely with the rest of our foreign flair on the team. If you could lock Varejao up for say 4-5 years at 5-6 mil a year, would you do it? I think it would be next to impossible to not do it. Not only do you strengthen your team by adding a high quality backup PF, but you weaken a possible championship rival in
