VIDEO: Wolves’ Pekovic pulls off impressive feat of strength
Anyone who’s ever stood next to Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic knows what a mountain of a man he is.
On Monday, the Timberwolves published a video illustrating the strength of the 6-foot-11, 295-pound behemoth.
In the video, Pekovic — still recovering from surgery on his right achilles — heaves a three-pound medicine ball 15 rows into the stands in Toronto, toward Arnie Kander, the team’s vice president of sports performance.
Pekovic, who averaged 12.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in 31 games last season, might be on the mend, but he’s still strong as a bull. Clearly.
