Default Why all the hate for Verrajo (sp)?

He may not be the most potent offensive weapon, but this dude has constantly made big plays for Cleveland in the clutch this year. Whether it’s a key rebound, drawing an offensive foul, or even making some crazy a*s shot no one expects to go in, Andy V is the man! He’s one of those guys that plays hard all the time.

I'm just wondering why he always seems to get bashed by Cav fans?

I love him, I really hope he resigns with us this offseason. But he's frustrating sometimes. He thinks he's a good offensive player and he does some stupid things, things he's not capable of.

I like Varejao myself. I think he's more worth to the team than people give him credit for. I didn't like the fact he held out for more money. But the way he hustles and plays hard, I think he's worth it. Usually there is only one thing to question on him. Which is his offensive decisions. Sometimes he drives to the basket or takes a jumper he'll usually won't make when he shouldn't. It's best if most of his shots come from passes 7 feet or closer to the basket.

He's a decent defender, great rebounder, he moves excellent without the ball and slashes to the basket a lot for passes, and one of the best floppers in the league to get the ball back to the Cavs.

This is slightly why yesterday when he went down in pain I was kind of holding my breath cause that mean our frontcourt would look something like this...

PF - Smith/Hickson
C - Big Z/Jackson

I am a bit of a harsher critic of Andy than most, but he does step it up when the Cavs need him to (expection being the gruesome shot he took in the NBA finals). He has a nose for getting the key rebound/loose ball. He just makes me cringe everytime he touches the ball, because outside shooting wide open jumpers, he has no clue how to do anything else. Most shots he make are a result of dumb luck.

He's good for team chemistry, and is a hit in the P.R. department (though for the life of me, I can't understand why his jersey is the 2nd most common Cavs jersey I see at games). I just hope they don't end up overpaying him, because he's not worth a dime more than what he makes right now, but I bet him and his agent think that they are.
