What all went into your decision to retire this offseason? Zaza Pachulia: This summer it was different than any previous time with so many free agents, with 40 percent of NBA players being free agents this year. There was a lot of movement, lot of players changing teams. Really, it was hard to keep up with what team what player was going to. And now, watching the games, it’s, “Oh, gosh, this guy is on a different team with different uniforms.” So, a lot of players were free agents, and the game changed, it became very young and a lot of teams want young. Obviously with the draft, you have a new 60 players coming in. To maintain a spot is pretty competitive.
Storyline: Warriors Front Office
Zaza Pachulia: To be honest, I was aiming for staying in basketball in a front office, but I didn’t know what team. The last couple of years, every summer, I’ve been going to different schools to get an education from the business side. This summer, actually, I went to the NBA office for a job shadow, went there for a couple days. Met with every single department I possibly could and got a lot of knowledge and experience in that regard. But I didn’t know the Warriors were gonna be the team who would offer me to join. I was really concentrated on playing every year, I was practicing and playing over the summer. It just … I dunno, it was great.
