Zaza Pachulia has funny reaction to Dirk Nowitzki dunking
Zaza Pachulia is a man of many talents: NBA center, All-Star vote-getting extraordinaire, and now, slam dunk truther.
On Tuesday, Dirk Nowitzki, Pachulia’s former teammate on the Dallas Mavericks, decided to jokingly flex on Twitter by posting an image of a rare dunk from him in last week’s win over the Phoenix Suns.

But Nowitzki’s tweet failed to convince Pachulia, who replied by questioning the authenticity of the image.
It's a photoshop. https://t.co/u9C8qPnbLn

In fairness, Pachulia had a right to be skeptical. After all, the 38-year-old Nowitzki has only managed to throw down a grand total of 11 dunks in the last three seasons combined (per Basketball Reference). But the video evidence doesn’t lie: it really happened.
As for Pachulia, he best tread lightly as he probably has the rest of the NBA thinking that something else has been Photoshopped lately as well.
