American TV Show on NBA TV, The Starters, has once again dedicated the program to Zaza Pachulia.

This time, they brought to light the reason why the Georgian basketball player has so many votes in NBA All Star’s polls. Not without irony and humor, the commentators discussed the results achieved by Pachulia but, at the same time, they apologized to Georgian public and decided to show Georgia center’s best performances in NBA.

Last time we dicsusses how it is possible that 30-year-old Zaza Pachulia, who has never been even close to NBA All Stars game, is now placed so high in the polls, even higher than Demarcus Cousins, Dwayne Howard and Dirk Novitsky, the anchors of the show said.

How does that happen? Who did it? Georgia? What is the population of Georgia? Not the state of Georgia, but the country of Georgia, they expressed their surprise.

Seems
like our last discussions have angered Georgians, our page is full of comments from Georgians and Zaza Pachulia received even more votes after that. Looks like Zaza Pachulia is supported by everybody in Georgia. This is Georgia’s Got Talent show and you see his name written there. Their President tweeted the same and military men support him too., they noted.

So, in the end the hosts of the show said (again not without irony) they decided to apologize somehow and offer you the 5 best moments in Pachulia’s career.

As for the official Facebook page of the show, they updated their status saying: After insulting the entire country of Georgia, The Starters get on board the #NBAAllStar Zaza Pachulia train.
