Pachulia, who played 16 seasons in the NBA and became a consultant for the Warriors after his playing days, added he understood why so many people talked about it because it affected a lot of things. However, he also threw a subtle jab at the media for blowing up the entire incident, which made his situation worse. “If you look at the Eastern and Western Conference, the media had nothing to talk about. Cleveland was sweeping everybody in the first three rounds, we were sweeping everybody as well. We ended that NBA Playoffs, 16-1,” Zaza Pachulia added. “So I guess that was something the media found and said ‘OK, let’s talk about this, let’s make it more interesting, let’s sell the news.’ We all know what kind of world we’re living in. It’s about selling information.”
“Another crazy thing, another small but important detail. Two minutes before that incident happened to Kawhi Leonard on my foot. Two minutes before, Kawhi was going to check into the game, he stepped on his own teammate’s foot and he rolled his ankle. Two minutes prior to that. Nobody is talking about it, nobody. I mean, that’s crazy. When you sprain the ankle, it happened to me so many times in my career, it takes time until you get your ankle back in good shape, with strengthening and making sure you don’t roll the ankle that easily. Look what happened to Giannis [Antetokounmpo] in this year’s playoffs. He rolled his ankle, and the next game, he rolled it again. Out of nowhere. The ankle is already weak, it’s a possibility to sprain it again.”
Pachulia will also be bringing the first Shoot 360 to Europe in his home country of The Republic of Georgia, where he already operates the Zaza Pachulia Basketball Academy and BC Dinamo in Tbilisi, Georgia that currently serves over 1500 kids and several professional teams. “I’m very excited to bring Shoot 360 to our basketball academy and to introduce it into the European markets where we can help develop players throughout Europe. I believe Shoot 360 is not only a great opportunity for my academy and the country of Georgia, it’s a great opportunity for basketball in Europe and for the entire basketball community worldwide,” Pachulia said.
Draymond Green said his championship Warriors would beat your Lakers. Any thoughts on that? Shaquille O’Neal: I have a hard time believing that the greatest coach of all time, plus me and Kobe, wouldn’t match up quite nicely against Steve Kerr and his gang. Kobe takes Steph and dominates him. Fisher takes Klay and manhandles him. Fox takes Draymond and makes him foul out in the first half. Horace would do his thing with K.D. But let’s be real, K.D., is a beast, and you can only do so much with him. And then I’d remind Pachulia why I am in the Hall of Fame and he is not.
“Vets accepted me,” Cook said. “Shaun and Andre and Zaza would tell me, every day, ‘Be a star in your role.’ I remember a couple times, especially in second year, Shaun and Andre would tell me ‘shoot the ball.’ “A lot of guys you hear about in the league, that they’re always selfish,” Cook added. “Or they only think about this. They don’t want to bring up the (younger) guy because it could affect playing minutes or money or whatever. Man, those dudes, Shaun and Andre, they wanted me to get 20 every night. It was, ‘Go shoot (with second unit).’ They would just lift my confidence every single day.”
