Minnesota Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic Might Be The Best

Nikola Pekovic hasn't exactly been known as a difference-maker for the Minnesota Timberwolves, but he's been terrific as of late ... both on and off the court. The latest example of his off-court exceptionalism was recently posted on the team's Youtube channel.

Pekovic is apparently participating in some sort of promotion where he travels the world and people have to guess where he is, it seems, a la Carmen Sandiego. That, or the team just wanted to take advantage of his charisma so they had him put on a jungle hat and walk around in front of a green screen.

Either way, as the video below shows, it's awesome.

It's been awhile since the Timberwolves had such a marketable personality in town -- look at that tattoo! -- so it's great to see them taking advantage of Pekovic's skills.
