Varnado “blessed” to play against his childhood idol


Varnado (left) is dribbling the ball up against Amar’e Stoudemire (right) who was his high school idol. It’s funny, because Varnado is a defensive role player and Stoudemire is an all-offense forward/center. Honestly, it’s a good thing that Varnado doesn’t try to play like his role model. He displays hustle and a knack for blocking shots. Anyways, the Sixers have had more than enough Amar’e wannabes, such as Marreese Speights and Arnett Moultrie.

Varnado was just signed earlier today for the remainder of the season.
