    He doesn't get any lift. This cut to the basket dunks that Nene got would not be fathomable for Pachulia.

    Hmm... let's see.. better defense, better handles, not enough air balls. Nope, poor comparison.

    I'm willing to bet it's just one billionaire buying votes, and that's why he had a stunning, quick finish in voting last year. And it explains why the NBA would change the rules. I doubt they change them for Yao or Lin, or anybody with legit votes.

    This is wholesale warehouse voting.

    you don't have to be a big country if most people voting are dedicated. How do you think GIannis is right now 5th in total votes? With such a name and playing in freaking Milwaukee?
    Just noone cares because he deserves it. Otherwise we would have tons of articles about him too.

    Firstly I couldn't care less if it's a "girl's" name or not. But just to give you insight. That's not his real first name. I remember watching him enter the league. I don't actually know why I remember, but I do. I had to Google to confirm. His first name is Zaur. Which if you look IS a male name. Again, not that it matters. He's in the NBA and we're not. He can be called whatever he wants.

    You do know if you go with Nene (which also isn't his real first name) it's a girl's name. I bet you wouldn't call him out on these boards, would you? So is he a scrub on a scrub team then? Exactly.

    Like I said, I'm not a fan of Zaza or the Warriors or whatever, but kind of lame to pick and choose.

    With the new system, fans votes only count for a portion. If Pachulia does not win a spot, I hope that his supporters won't all be Zaur grapes.

    Nah, not taking him too seriously. Just hate names is all. Even though I was born here in America, still have a crappy Asian name and got totally made fun of. So I always try and defend people with "different" names. Like I said, not a fan of theirs, but always try and defend people with names that aren't normal. Obviously, I did legally get my name changed.

    P.S. I'm actually not a big Jeremy Lin fan, just stating that since most people assume all Asians love him. I'm just neutral. Neither love nor hate him.
