Anderson Varejao is averaging 15.2 points and 15.4 rebounds per game heading into tonight's matchup with the Chicago Bulls. He's also shooting 52.2 percent from the floor overall and 77.7 percent from the free throw line.
To that point, Dave Wooley (@dwooley81) emailed me the following statistic.
The players who have averaged at least 15 points and 15 rebounds while shooting over 50 percent from the field and over 75 percent from the free throw line in NBA history include:
– Moses Malone (1982-83)
– Bob McAdoo (1973-74)
– Jerry Lucas (1963-64, 1967-68 & 1968-69)
That's Hall of Famer, Hall of Famer, Hall of Famer, Anderson Varejao.
And all we're asking is that this guy make one trip to the All-Star game. I'm starting to wonder why this is still even a question.
