How Zaza Pachulia Almost Became An All-Star Starter


As Jason mentioned this morning, Zaza Pachulia came up just 14,000 votes short of being named a Western Conference All-Star starter. It would have been amazing and deserved and also kind of ridiculous and amazing again. (If he had made it, he would need to make an entrance, and I have five words for you: Zaza dances with the Jabbawockeez.) I know I’m not the only ZFFL out there. But even though he’s playing the best ball of his career, how exactly did that almost happen? Tim Cato has a good look at how a Vine star, seemingly at random, gave Zaza a last-minute push that almost worked.
