Byron Scott Thinks Everyone on the Cavs But Anderson Varejao ‘Sucked’

by November 28, 2012

Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott thinks highly of center Anderson Varejao — in fact, he claims that the floppy-haired big man is the best at his position. Scott didn’t think so highly of Anderson Varejao’s teammates last night. Reports the Plain Dealer: “Playing their fourth game in five nights, minus a veteran and valuable bench player, Cleveland fell to the Suns, 91-78, in front of a sparse 13,687 at The Q. The Cavaliers were so out of sync and the game so out of reach from the beginning that coach Byron Scott issued a stinging assessment afterward. ‘Andy Varejao was fantastic,’ Scott said. ‘Everybody else sucked tonight.’ Fairly succinct and accurate, it turns out. Varejao recorded 20 points and 15 rebounds, his sixth consecutive double-double and sixth straight logging at least 15 rebounds. He dominated in the third quarter, when he logged 14 of his points and helped the Cavaliers knot the game at 57.”
