When the Dallas Mavericks traded for veteran big man Zaza Pachulia for a second round pick this summer it was widely praised as a great depth move that would help Dirk Nowitzki and the rest of the young Dallas big men to be as successful as possible. As it turns out, the move has turned out way better than that, as Pachulia has been great for Dallas all season long, providing toughness, offensive rebounding and defense for a surprising Mavericks team.
More importantly though, his friendship with Nowitzki has become one of the best off court relationships in all of the NBA. The two continued their amazing banter with an exchange on Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
It started with Pachulia making a simple joke.
From there, Nowitzki responded by making fun of Zaza’s big head.
Amazing. This only adds more reasoning about why the two need cameras following them around at all times for some type of reality show. Mark Cuban has billions of dollars, surely he can make this happen.
