Cavs legend Anderson Varejao got a touching video for his last home game. Anderson Varejao was the first pick for the second round in the 2004 NBA Draft. The Orlando Magic took him at pick no. 30.

Had Varejao been taken by the Timberwolves instead of the Magic, maybe he never finds his way to the Cavs.
It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Anderson Varejao back in his glory days for the Cleveland Cavaliers, mostly during LeBron James’ first stint with the Wine and Gold. Recently, though, with the Cavs so banged up to close the season here, Varejao was signed to a 10-day deal via the league’s hardship exception. And he will reportedly be seemingly signed to a second 10-day via hardship exception continuation from there, too.
Anderson Varejao will be made available to appear in his first NBA game in four years on Wednesday, according to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com. The Cleveland Cavaliers (21-44) host the Portland Trail Blazers (36-29) at RocketMortgage Fieldhouse. The 38-year old Varejao, who officially signed a 10-day contract to re-join the...

One of LeBron James’ most memorable teammates? One of the best Brazilian players in NBA history?

Do you even remember that he was with the Warriors for two seasons after spending all those others with the Cavaliers? Do you remember the Portland Trail Blazers thing? (We’ll get to that shortly if you don’t.)
