Video: Where in the world is Nikola Pekovic?

Feb 13, 2012, 7:28 PM EDT

Who do you think Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic looks like? I tend to go with classic Eastern European crime syndicate enforcer, but if you want to go with Non from Superman II (as J.E. Skeets of The Score does), I can see it. Timberwolves coach Rich Adelman says he looks like a starter (a role he’ll keep even after Darko Milicic comes back).

But Pekovic is a bit of a goofy character, and the Timberwolves staff decided to have some fun with that in this in-house video. Which has just the right mix of strange and pointlessness to it. Enjoy.

    Awesome. About time Nikola got some love. He has been playing really good since he became a starter. The real test is coming tonight as he is playing against Dwight Howard.
