My eyes got big when I saw Pek was only 34 too. That's crazy, if healthy he could still be in the league putting up good numbers.
When luck shuts the door skill comes in through the window.

I feel like for a second round pick, Pek definitely outkicked his coverage, and he made some of the games during that long dark depressing stretch watchable. He retired young and reasonably healthy.


Agree, except he retired early because his feet or leggs were not healthy.

I loved having Pek. For once in our history we were the bullies rather than the team getting bullied.

he was Rubio's teddy bear

He got angry like three times in his career here and made the opponent pay. Otherwise he was petting bunnies.

Tell that to the many opponents who talked about coming away from games against Pek battered and bruised. Battling him was like throwing themselves at a brick wall.

this is when GSW was average or just above average


One of his really "strongly played" games.


We couldn't get full games like that often. He had soft games. But he did make a great fit with Love/Rubio. Would have really been nice if he could have stayed healthy.

Thanks for the link. Man it was fun watching him play seeing the bodies go flying and bouncing off him.
