Cleveland Cavalier Anderson Varejao has had a laundry list of injuries in his NBA career, but never anything that threatened his life until he developed blood clots following his most recent surgery.
Now rehabbing, Varejao opened up to Yahoo’s Marc Spears about his experience-
“Then you start to think about it and realize that this is more serious than I thought. A week after the surgery I was at home thinking about how I could be gone right now.”
Additionally, Varejao offered his thoughts on playing with Kyrie Irving-
“He’s a special player and he deserves everything that is going on in his life right now,” Varejao said. “I’m happy to be part of his career and play with him.”
Finally, Spears asked Varejao about the constant trade rumors that are always attached to his name-
“If they trade me, they trade me,” he said. “I’m happy here. I don’t want to be traded.”
Well worth the read.
