Pekovic will be officially proposed to become the new president of the Federation in an upcoming board meeting this Thursday and is expected to to be elected to the position in the upcoming weeks. He will join the likes of former players such as Hedo Turkoglu, Andrei Kirilenko and Jorge Garbajosa in being elected at the helm of his country Basketball Federation.
This list includes a few new names, like Finals MVP Maxwell, while some big men compilers fall off. Other notable recent players who come close to the top 10 include Nene (11th by peak value), Brent Barry (12th), Richard Jefferson (15th), Mike Bibby (18th), and Hedo Turkoglu (19th).
Josh Robbins: Tonight, Nikola Vucevic will play his 498th regular-season game with the Magic. He’ll move into sole possession of sixth place on the franchise’s career games list. At tipoff, he’s tied with Hedo Turkoglu, who played 497 regular-season games for Orlando.
Scott Anez: Stan Van Gundy on the 10th anniversary of LeBron’s game winning trey over Hedo to beat our @Orlando Magic in the ECF’s— “I have that image in my head every day of my life. It’s the most regrettable decision I made in my playoff career.”
