No it isn't. Andy V had a greater impact on those Cavs playoff teams than Big Z did.

Yes, no, maybe. The issue with Varejao at this point is he can't stay on the floor. At least after Z got past his injury riddled early years he was able to play consistently every year in most of the games. Not to mention Z is the second in team history in scoring, and leads the team in a number of different stats as well.

He did stay there for 14 years. That's a ridiculously long time. He was an all-star twice too.

It's still funny though.

Who knows Z could even play at a high level that long after multiple foot surgeries, which usually derails many so big men's basketball careers, and with the same team for more than 10 years?

Well deserved. Allstar, loyal and he has enough numbers make it. Also he is well beloved in fanbase.

Not everyone suppose to be champion to get their jersey retired. How many teams in NBA able to win a championship since If i didn't forget any, only Boston, Lakers, Sixers, Pistons, Bulls, Rockets Heat, Spurs, Mavs won championships since 80's.

9 teams in more than 30 years.
