I, like most other Wolves fans have become a huge fan of Nikola Pekovic but people seem to keep knocking his defense. The other post suggesting we trade Pek for Biyombo doesn't make any sense to me. Sure, Biyombo is much more athletic and will produce many more highlight reel blocks but I don't think Pek is given enough credit for his defensive ability. You don't see Pek making huge blocks or what not but his physicality is what makes him a respectable and capable defender. Last night the guy held the best center in the league, Dwight Howard, to 4-11 shooting and seven boards and got him into foul trouble. A couple of games ago even Andrew Bynum, another all star center remarked "Thank god they took Pekovic out" Pek is a defensive force, but not in a way that is obvious. Pek all the way.
