On Thursday night, the NBA announced its starting lineups for the 2016 All-Star Game set to be held in Toronto on Feb. 14. Zaza Pachulia almost crashed the party.
That’s right—the Dallas Mavericks center, who is averaging 10.5 points and 10.8 rebounds, came within 14,227 votes of knocking out San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard for a starting spot on the West squad.
