Career: Franca Marathon (Brazil, 1998-2002), FC Barcelona (Spain-ACB, 2002-04), Cleveland Cavaliers (USA-NBA, 2004-06).

Slowly but surely, Anderson Varejao is climbing the steps to the top - one by one. Where he stops is still anyone's guess. In his second season with Cleveland, Anderson made a huge impression during the playoffs, especially in the second round against the Detroit Pistons. With the Almighty LeBron James, Anderson was the spark that helped the Cavs take the lead in the series before losing eventually in Game 7. A fantastic athlete, he gave Cleveland some credibility on defense, where

Ilgauskas, Gooden and Marshall were having a tough time against the physical Pistons. "He has about the quickest feet of any guy I know that is 7 feet, or 6-10 and some hair", said his coach Mike Brown, refering to Anderson's unique hairdo, which is very Brazilian in some way. On offense, Anderson doesn't really have a go-to move but relies on his energy, his quickness and his ability to be at the right place at the right time.
