I know Varejao gives straight heart out there on D,dudes a warrior, but that goes into what I meant about Size and Defense. Dudes gotta know the difference.
The Cleveland 2.0 reference was about no other clear cut player being a number 2.Now if Gallo suddenly became consistent or Chandler could get easier buckets then I'd take that statement back. But, as of now it's not the case and it's a superstar surrounded by role players who are maxed out by the system and playing alongside a great player.
I hear you about Philly,but when it comes to $ you just never know with management. They could see the fan base loosing alot interest by trading their best player also the chance at missing extra ticket sales if they keep winning and make the postseason. I do think they'll wait until almost the deadline to re evaluate where the team is at.
IMO though Brand is by far the worst contract on their roster and I'd figure they'd try to rid themselves of him someway.They actually become theirselfs playing uptempo w/o Brand on the floor and look legit.
Maybe they can throw in Lou Williams and a 1st rounder and hopefully some sucker takes him?? IDK. Houston took JJ last year and it cost us a 1st rounder,so it's not out of the realm of possiblity.Or so I would think
