The Warriors' NBA Finals hats are a little too small for Zaza Pachulia

The Golden State Warriors all seemed pretty excited to sweep the San Antonio Spurs and be crowned Western Conference champions for the third year in a row. Yet there was one unfortunate exception.

After the win, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and the rest of the crew put on their Western Conference champions swag, including T-shirts and hats, but center Zaza Pachulia was left out. And that wasn’t because he was listed as inactive for the Game 4 win, as he continued to work his way back from a bruised right heel. Instead, Pachulia’s famously large head appeared to be too big for the hats.

Curry explained the issue to ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt:


“I don’t know if it was the hat not fitting or the terrible popped collar Euro-look, but either one, we had to rag on him a little bit,” Curry told Van Pelt. “They don’t make the hat Zaza-sized. But hopefully they get that fixed if we win the Finals, and they can get a bigger hat for him.”

And Pachulia very much appreciated Curry’s public request for “Zaza-sized” hats:


There are nine days until Game 1 of the 2017 NBA Finals, so the league’s hat manufacturers should have more than enough time to get Pachulia’s measurements. Better luck next time, Zaza.
