Would Wins Push Varejao’s All-Star Votes?
Anderson Varejao leads the NBA in rebounds per game (14.8), offensive rebounds per game (5.8) and defensive rebounds per game (9.0).
However, he’s only 12th in the Eastern Conference among frontcourt players when it comes to All-Star Game voting, and Cavaliers coach Byron Scott thinks that’s a travesty.
“I think the thing that might hurt him the most, and what we’ve got to start doing a better job of, is winning games,” Scott said. “I think that probably hurts him more than anything. As competitive as we have been, we’ve still got to put some ‘W’s on that board. We’ve got to do it from now to the end of this month and obviously in January when we’ve got a lot of home games. I think that will help his cause.”
