Clippers’ Tobias Harris teases making a show with Boban Marjanovic
NBA netizens have slowly taken notice of the playful friendship between Los Angeles Clippers teammates Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic. Their comical antics on social media have certainly caught the attention of Clippers and NBA fans alike, and they want to see more of it.
A fan on Twitter (@Matt_chup) asked the 6-foot-9 swing man the typical “how many favorites or retweets” for them to make a Bobi and Tobi Show. It definitely seems like Harris is warming up to the idea:
🤔🤔🤔 Get me 5k of either. And I’ll try my best to convince Boban!!!!!!!!!! 😱😱 https://t.co/XfheHKhcQ3

The Clippers’ official Twitter account seems to approve of the pairing as well:

The bond between Harris and Marjanovic stemmed from their days in Detroit, before both were traded in a package that sent Clippers superstar Blake Griffin to the Pistons.
Harris was a borderline All-Star and was having a career year in Detroit before being traded, averaging 18.1 points on 45.1 percent field goal shooting and 40.9 percent from beyond the arc. He only improved on those numbers upon joining the Clippers, ramping up his averages to 19.3 points, 47.3 percent from the field, and 41.4 percent from 3 in 32 starts for the team.
Marjanovic, on the other hand, played in just 20 games for the Clippers, where he averaged 5.9 points on 55.1 percent shooting and 4.4 rebounds, pretty much at the norm for the 7-foot-3 behemoth’s career. He may see an uptick in minutes this season, though, with DeAndre Jordan leaving for the Mavericks.
Both of them are in contract years for the Clippers, so there is always that possibility that both may go their separate ways after this season. Hopefully, Harris can convince Boban to get the show rolling with him. And hopefully the show can keep these two clowns together.
Let’s make it happen guys! Retweet away!
