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.
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.
