The Cleveland Cavaliers held a "Wild Thing Wig Night" promotion at Quicken Loans Arena for Friday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks as a tribute to center Anderson Varejao. The first 10,000 fans received a wig modeled after Varejao's curly hair, complete with a yellow Cavs headband.
The fans seemed to enjoy wearing the wigs, and even guard Daniel Gibson put one on during pregame warmups. Unfortunately, Varejao himself could not play in the game due to a bruised right knee. Talk about bad timing.
Varejao wore a suit as he watched from the bench while the Cavs lost to the Hawks 102-94.
