Cavs Name Varejao Starting Center

The Cleveland Cavaliers have settled on the two players who will join their Big Three in the starting lineup when the regular season begins next week.

Cavs coach David Blatt said Friday that Anderson Varejao will start at center against the New York Knicks on Thursday, joining Dion Waiters at shooting guard and Cleveland’s star-studded trio of small forward LeBron James, power forward Kevin Love and point guard Kyrie Irving.

Varejao, 32, beat out the 23-year-old Tristan Thompson for the starting nod on opening night. Blatt said that the decision came down, in part, to Varejao’s history of playing alongside James. The two were teammates from 2004 to ’10.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
