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.
I still think he's a flopper and a hack job. I think he's a reckless defender. I think if you took Lebron off that team lots of numbers would go down. We're allowed to disagree. I mean at this point what's left to say? you think Varejao is better I don't. The stats are out there so it's just personal opinion at this point.
