LOL!!! It isn't even close. Nene by light years. If it wasn't for Nene, the Nuggets would be a .500 team.

Nene 14.7 points per game 8.0 rebounds per game 1.43 BPG 1.28 steals per game.

Both playing great this year, but no doubt Nene is on the verge of being an all star, and Varejao is about where Nene was a few seasons back as far as production.

Nice to see these two guy's getting better though, and nice to see Nene making a full recovery after his fight with cancer. Both guys' stock should continue to rise as they continue to get better.
Varejao's impact can't be measured accuratly by stats. This has being discussed when he was negotiating his contract back in 2007, see Bad Use of Statistics is Killing Anderson Varejao and Judging the Value of Anderson Varejao.

That being said, I think Nene's value is huge to the Nuggets team, and since you brought the stats, you forgot the most important one regarding Nene. His FG% is .605 this season. He ranks first in Field-Goal Shooting this season.

Re: Nene vs. Verejao: Perception vs. Reality

It's still a close question. It's funny but everytime you think this question is resolved, Varejao gets better or Nene gets hurt.

Any team would be happy with either player I imagine.

Re: Nene vs. Verejao: Perception vs. Reality

Nene is a Center you can actually go to down low, he's a excellent athlete and can block shots.

Varejao can rebound and brings a few intangibles, but Nene is a flatout better player IMO.

Re: Nene vs. Verejao: Perception vs. Reality

Varejao is a step up from a disposable big.

Nene is a step below an all-star big.

Hmm, is Nene even alive?

Meanwhile Anderson has been awesome. Too bad he's a team trying to tank: the dude has outplayed Aldridge, Gasol/Randolph, Griffin, Lopez, Gortat, Horford in just the last month.
