Nikola Pekovic is playing out of his mind. This is exactly what people hoped for as a best case scenario when he came over from Europe.
He was always a champion in Europe. He won everywhere he went, sort of like Ricky Rubio. But there was some debate as to whether his game could translate to the NBA. Heck, even the hosts of the famous Timberwolf podcast, Twolfcast, said that he should be cut at the start of the season.
But with Darko's injuries, Pek has assumed a starting role, and he has blossomed.
So the question is... Is Pekovic our starting center for the forseeable future? Is that position now locked down? Should we stop looking for a starting center, and focus on filling the other two positions we have left now that we have Love, Rubio, and Pek?
I say Yes, but I am not a very fine basketball mind. I am hoping we can get some more erudite dudes to weigh in on this.
