Found December 01, 2012 on Stepien Rules:
I was looking for a pick-and-roll between Dion Waiters and Anderson Varejao last night on the Cavaliers final possession. Byron Scott put the ball in Waiters' hands and it looked as if the Varejao screen was indeed an option. I'm not sure if Waiters waved it off, or Varejao made that read, but no ball-screen came. Dion instead took a long jumper that would've missed badly if not for Alonzo Gee. Here's that play from the Atlanta perspective last night: [youtube]P41ElQ1sVIE[/youtube] "Aww man, what a bad break for the Hawks". - Hawks Announcer Cavaliers tip-off against against J.J.

Anderson Varejao should win the NBA's Most Improved this season

Anderson Varejao should be an All-Star. We've been over this. He's a 14 and 14 guy who's playing out of his mind every night even though it's completely obvious his team will lose before each game ever begins. Maybe that effort will be rewarded with a trip to Houston for ASW. Maybe it won't. Regardless, I do think Varejao does deserve the NBA's Most...

Video: Dion Waiters monster double-pump dunk

Tweet The Cleveland Cavaliers took a risk by drafting Dion Waiters fourth overall in last summer’s NBA Draft, mostly for his ability to make plays like this: Waiters early development has been much needed for a Cavs team that is without last season’s ROY Kyrie Irving.

Wild times for the Wild Thing
