The Heatles have broken up so I guess that makes Anderson Varejao the new Yoko Ono.
No, not really, but in a strange twist of fate, Cleveland is now the new Chosen One.
I wouldn’t normally post pictures this high up on the TMZ scale, but this is a special case. I don’t know what it is about these photos of James and Varejao, but they warm my heart, so I know Clevelanders have got to be going gaga over all of it.
But I wonder if they’re hard for Wade to look at. “Fuck that flopper.” Maybe?
LeBron’s old mate Andy seems to be quite excited about recent developments.
This is Varejao from The Doug Gottlieb Show:
I could not believe it. I was so happy. I was so excited. The first thing I did was tell everybody. I told my dad, my wife. I’m so happy for him. I’m so happy for Cleveland. I’m so happy for myself. I’m still shocked.
What Varejao says after that is surprising – he loves himself some Cleveland.
Through all those years, I had so many people in my head trying to tell me I should leave Cleveland because Cleveland was done, that I could not win a championship in Cleveland, that it was a rebuilding process, that I should go somewhere else to try to help a team win a championship. I had so many people in my head. I was always telling them that Cleveland was home for me, that I love Cleveland, that I would never ask Cleveland to trade me.
And contenders wanted him. Miami could’ve used him. But he wouldn’t budge. Good for him because he’s about to be rewarded for his loyalty.
I’m in Cleveland now, LeBron’s coming back and everything changed. So now people are telling me that I did the right thing. So I’m just happy that I didn’t leave and I’m happy I’m still in Cleveland. I think everything happens for a reason. Maybe that’s why I got hurt. Maybe that’s why Cleveland didn’t trade me. [Because] LeBron’s coming back.
That’s a good way to look at it. “Everything happens for a reason” is always a good stress reliever.
I’m not saying we’re going to win, but I’m going to tell you that we’re going to have a pretty good chance to win a championship for Cleveland.
I think so too!
