The 2016 Summer Olympics will be played in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a place in which Cavaliers center Anderson Varejão knows very well. The nine-year NBA veteran was born in Colatina - Espirito Santo, Brazil, approximately 650 km (404 miles) from Rio.

Varejão represented the Brazilian National Team in the 2012 Summer Olympics played in London, England and hopes to do the same in his home country in 2016.

In the meantime, check out a special video below as Varejão narrates his career path from his humble beginnings to becoming the first Brazilian to play in the finals of the world's major league.
