In pursuit of a coveted championship, the Cleveland Cavaliers recently made a challenging but business-minded decision: trading away fan-favorite Anderson Varejao.

Enter, the seven stages of grief.

Next, bargaining begins. "What'd we get?" he inquires in a practical manner. 

Unsatisfied with the answer, depression soon kicks in, and the tears begin to flow—accompanied by Sarah McLachlan's "I Will Remember You."

What of acceptance? Well, Geo manages a small nod when asked, "You still root for the Cavs, though, right?"

Just in case he hasn't quite made it there, however, perhaps they should hold off on telling him that the big man agreed to sign with the Golden State Warriors...
