Clippers’ Boban Marjanovic posts video of his new 30-for-30
What if I told you LA Clippers center Boban Marjanovic would become one of the most likable players in the entire NBA? Boban is literally a larger-than-life figure on the court and has the larger-than-life personality off the court to match.
The Serbian big man posted a highlight video to his Twitter with a caption that said, “30 for 30: There Are Big Men & Then There’s Boban #BFG.” BFG stands for the Big Friendly Giant, which is one of Boban’s many nicknames.
Of course, the 30 for 30 is a joke, but would anyone be upset if ESPN got the memo and started working on a Boban Marjanovic documentary?

Marjanovic is having one of the best seasons of his career with the Clippers. Doc Rivers is figuring out exactly how to use Boban and it’s the first time in his career that the 7-foot-3 behemoth is averaging double digits in minutes per game.
Marjanovic’s tremendous frame makes him a complete mismatch inside and a problem for opposing teams to deal with. Unfortunately, his tremendous size hinders his stamina, but that’s part of what Rivers is learning to work around. He can’t go out and play 25 minutes a night.
However, Marjanovic can give solid minutes off the bench. Not to mention that he can fill in as a starter in a pinch. In a recent start for the Clippers against the Phoenix Suns, the 30-year-old big man tallied 12 points and 12 rebounds in just under 20 minutes. He was instrumental in their 16-point victory over the lowly Suns.
