Zaza Pachulia Receives Order of Honor


Warriors center Zaza Pachulia is a national hero in the Repulic of Georgia.

Due to being worshiped at home, and people voting for him like crazy, Pachulia was one of the players with the most All Star fan votes, and would have made the All Star Game, if the NBA hadn’t change the All Star voting rules.

Now, Zaza has received the Order Of Honor, given to him by President Giorgi Margverlashvili. The Order of Honor is presented to citizens for their outstanding personal contribution to the building of the independent Georgian state.

Pachulia was honored and said:


“This is a tremendous honor and I am humbled to accept it. I remember dreaming about playing professional basketball as a kid in the gyms of Tbilisi, and now, after a journey across continents that began when I was a teenager, I am coming home with the championship trophy. I am proud to represent Georgia and I am looking forward to celebrating with the people of my country this week.”
