Wyclef Jean and the President of Georgia nearly got Zaza Pachulia into the All-Star Game

10

NBA All-Star game starters were revealed last night and Dallas Mavericks center Zaza Pachulia nearly pulled off the impossible:

That’s Zaza Pachulia almost making the All-Star game and receiving more votes than Draymond Green who seems to mess around and get a triple-double every other game.

Let’s give it up for hard-charging Zaza though. 13 seasons into his NBA career, the Georgian national is having his best season with 10.8 points per game and just over seven rebounds per game. Yeah, so we probably would have looked back on a Zaza Pachulia All-Star appearance in 2016 the same way in which we do that time Jamaal Magloire randomly averaged a double-double and made the All-Star game for the New Orleans (don’t call ’em Charlotte) Hornets in 2004.

But this was fan voting. How in the f*ck did Zaza Pachulia receive more votes than Blake Griffin? And what is Enes Kanter doing up there? Let’s take a look.

This is so great. First, I just love how his Twitter name is just “President of Georgia.” Forget trying to pronounce Giorgi Margvelashvili. That’s way too hard. This is just the President of motherf*cking Georgia, a country with a population of 4.5 million people, and he wants you to vote for Zaza Pachulia or else. The rest of his tweets are about like Eastern European conflict, terrorist attacks, and commemorating Lithuania’s independence and then there’s just a rogue “Zaza Pachulia!” Love it. This guy has my vote. I’m not sure how the Georgian political system works, but he should be the President for life.

The PoG wasn’t the only one behind Zaza. He had the support of his entire country according to Georgia Today:

Georgian society has united to get basketball player Zaza Pachulia playing in the NBA All-Star Game. During an entire month social networks have been filled with #NBAVOTE Zaza Pachulia posts. Not only are ordinary citizens in on the craze, even the President of Georgia, ministers, journalists, public figures and foreign embassies have joined the action. As a result, now Pachulia has a real chance to play among the true greats of basketball.

Zaza Pachulia’s 10 point, seven rebound per game averages united Georgian society. Let this be a note to all other countries with any type of political unrest. Find your tallest citizen that is coordinated enough to tie his shoes, send him over to America to play in the NBA, wait 12 or so years, and then hope that he eventually averages 10 points and seven rebounds per game. This is how we save the world one country at a time.

Who else was on the Zaza train? Some Georgian pop star named Bera was able to recruit Wyclef Jean to do this:

I would buy this song a million times on iTunes.

Let’s all unite to get Zaza Pachulia into the All-Star game next year. It won’t be easy, but then again nothing is.

    well, you’re not exactly true,while in US there are tons of basketball players and all of they are pretty good, Georgia only has one “avarage” by NBA’s standards player called Zaza. You might not know some facts about Georgia, but when Georgian gets some fame among the society BESIDES Georgia, he literally becomes a national hero, everyone loves him, supports him and is simply crazy about him. So, in fact, Zaza was everyFUCKINGwhere in Georgias social news feed, talks, tv. I am sure that EVERY show in Georgia, EVERY page on facebook was encouraging people to type #NBAVOTE zaza fachulia everyday and it was really worth it. You know why? Country like us, aka little suckers compared to the rest of the world, got some attention around it, so many people have realised that there is OTHER Georgia besides state of US and it makes all of us proud. We are aggressive people and that’s okay, every nation has it’s own culture, so bear with it because we are okay with that too. President is really cool, whose president did that? Heh, the rest still sharing retarded posts of how good is Europe and how are they progressing in developing peace in the world while arabs rape their women AND OUR HOLY GOD COOL PRESIDENT POSTS #NBAVOTE lol. well, at least, he is cooler than yours in that sense. Liked the post, tho, ironic, but partly true. #GEORGIA
