Zaza Pachulia is a 13-year NBA veteran who has carved out a very respectable career as a bruising, old-school big man. After being traded to the Mavericks this season, Pachulia is having one of his best years yet, averaging 10.5 points and 10.8 rebounds while starting every game.
While those are good numbers, and Dallas is incredibly grateful for finding Pachulia when they were in desperate need of a center, they’re not All-Star numbers.

Zaza Pachulia got more NBA All-Star votes than Draymond Green, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis and D.Cousins, and almost beat Kawhi Leonard.
