How is Varejao a hack? He's actually a really good defender (not just a flopper that he was a few years ago). Despite coming off the bench and having no plays called for him (whatsoever) he still finds himself with a lot of points. He' s got good hands, passes the ball well, every bit as energetic as Noah and (IMO) a better defender. I just think it comes down to opportunities. On a team with lots of offensive weapons (as well as good rebounders), Noah's numbers would come down.
