Most fiery and awesome support ever for Zaza Pachulia from Georgian students
A group of Georgian students have decided to express their support towards famous Georgian basketball player Zaza Pachulia who is currently fighting to play the NBA All Stars game, not only through social media but through quite an interesting and creative way.

As you know Georgian basketball player Zaza Pachulia made quite a jump in NBA All-Star game poll during last days and is 8th among frontcourt candidates. But in order to get a chance to play the NBA All Stars game Zaza has to make it to the top three by January 18. Georgians really know how to back each other, but yesterday we witnessed it once again. A few friends with crazy ideas went to the Tbilisi hippodrome at night and wrote the well-known words #NBAVOTE Zaza Pachulia by lighting fire on the ground.

“We made it! This is how we express
our support for Georgian sportsman and call on others to become more active and vote for Zaza Pachulia. Also we want to thank our police and fire brigade who did not fine us and instead helped extinguish the fire”, says one of the participants Meko Asatiani on her Facebook account.

The author of this extraordinary idea is Davit Buliskeria who carried it out together with his friends: Giorgi Basilaia, Giorgi Khinchagashvili, ,Givi Maghradze, Guja Chiburdanidze, Grigol Peradze, Meko Asatiani, Luka Poniatowski and Vaso Miruashvili.
