I would disagree with Bosh. On this Wolves team, he would be a clear no 1 option. You could play him and Love together very well. Maybe some good offensive centers would cause them some trouble, but as we know, there aren't many of them.

Bosh is a brilliant player; if he was on T-Wolves, like a straight trade places with Nikola Pekovic?
Kevin Love would play the 5 and Bosh would go back to power forward. Yeah he'd be the clear #1 option, and yeah they'd play well together no question, but Love is bigger, stronger, better rebounder.... more designed for the center.

I fear Bosh is too small for what he's doing, he's liable to get hurt real bad come playoff time because somebody like Perkins or Chandler will just brutalize him. I could be wrong and I hope I am; we'll see.

On the other team? I expect Miami would be completely untouchable with Pekovic at center. Big as he is, that dude can run

Once again, gabepizza is a gigantic TROLL.

This is the same guy that said Hilton Armstrong was 100% for sure the best center in Europe.

Same guy that said Jordan Farmar is the "Michael Jordan of Europe".

Same guy that says Bobby Brown is the best player in Europe.

Same guy that says Anthony Parker is the greatest player in the history of Europe.

This is the same guy that said Josh Childress was one of the top 4 wing players in Europe.

The same guy that says Bourousis could not even make an NBA roster and is a scrub compared to Ike Diogu.

The same guy that says Spanoulis would never be more than a 3rd string PG in NBA or at best one of the worst backups in the NBA.

Same guy that says Rubio "led Barcelona to the Euroleague title".

Same guy that says Ty Lawson was one of the best players in Euroleague.

Same guy that says Deron Williams is the best player in the history of Euroleague.


Why the hell are you guys taking anything this ****ing clown troll says seriously?

When Pekovic is the starter on an NBA champion and Olympic champion maybe we can start comparing them.



This guy is ****ing certifiable.

Bourousis is way better than Chandler. So is Pekovic. You are a Knicks nut rider.

And 107-100 is in no ****ing way in hell "whupped".

**** OFF

LMFAO at Bourousis "getting dominated inside by Nigeria". You are a delusional freak.

Meanwhile, Horford is having a fine game with 13 and 8, and the Hawks are trying;
Dominique went over to the Wolves announcers at half time and told them "Atlanta has no answer for Pekovic. None at all."

Highlights from last night, 25 points and 18 rebounds, in the absence of Kevin Love.
Not so bold prediction: He will be a 20/10 guy in the NBA.

I have a rough time actually ranking Pekovic right now. He hasn't established himself as better than some of those guys, but then there's the in a vacuum argument...still a lot of season left. Let's see if they can get to the playoffs.
