Zach Galifianakis, Nikola Pekovic

By Ben Eagle

The photo above of Nikola Pekovic and Zach Galifianakis is quite a treat. It comes via Kevin Love's Instagram account with the caption "Pek might be the biggest Zach fan on the planet."

Love isn't kidding. Pekovic, the lumbering Timberwolves center, is officially listed at 6-foot-11; Galifianakis is unofficially listed at 5-8, but standing next to Pekovic, he looks even smaller.

The StarTribune lists Pekovic's favorite movies as Gladiator, Braveheart and The Godfather, but, judging by this photo, he's a comedy fan, too. Galifianakis, the star of The Hangover movies, is no stranger to the Association. He's appeared courtside several times at Madison Square Garden and Staples Center and even found himself sitting next to Knicks legend Walt Clyde Frazier last season.
