Video: Boban Marjanovic dances with DeAndre Jordan
Boban Marjanovic has been living it up this season, both on the court and off. The 7-foot-3 center has only played in five games for the L.A. Clippers, registering measly numbers of 4.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per game, but he has provided plenty of entertainment to the squad and its fans.
Unlike other foreigners, Marjanovic has become quickly accustomed to the pop culture of the United States, learning many of today’s popular dances. His dancing buddy, Tobias Harris, has shown him many modern-day moves, including the Milly Rock on one occasion.
After being traded to the Clippers in a blockbuster trade for Blake Griffin, Marjanovic has taken his dancing bug to his new teammates. DeAndre Jordan seems to be fond of Marjanovic’s dancing habits, even joining in during a pre-game warmup.
In this video, Marjanovic clearly makes Jordan look like a smaller center, but he chose to get down with him anyway. This display shows that the Clippers are having fun even in their current sense of urgency. Right now, the Clippers are sitting at ninth place in the Western Conference.
After the departures of Griffin and Chris Paul, many people believed that the former contenders would become a lottery team. That has been quite the contrary this year, thanks to the explosive career year of Lou Williams and their supporting cast of young and talented players.
The Clippers have a realistic shot at making the postseason and being a headache to a higher-tier team. Clearly, if Marjanovic can translate those quick moves to the court, opposing defenders will have a monstrous dilemma.
