Video: Clippers’ Boban Marjanovic holds the ball up and no defender could reach for it
L.A. Clippers center Boban Marjanovic is quickly becoming everyone’s favorite NBA player due to his tall stature and funny personality.
At 7-foot-3 and gifted with freakish reach, Marjanovic towers over a lot of his fellow NBA players and it gives him the luxury of being able to hold the ball above his head in traffic so that no one can touch it.
Well, that’s exactly what Boban Marjanovic did Friday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder:
Boban Marjanovic finished the game with 13 points and five rebounds in 16 minutes of action versus the Thunder to help the Clippers earn a 108-92 victory. The four-year veteran is shooting above 70 percent from the field through two games, which doesn’t come as a surprise given that all of his shots are at the rim.
There isn’t a lot of hype surrounding the Clippers this year. This season features the first Clippers team since 2011 which won’t have Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, or DeAndre Jordan on the team. Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets last summer, Griffin was sent to the Detroit Pistons at the 2018 February trade deadline, and Jordan signed with the Dallas Mavericks this offseason in free agency.
It doesn’t matter, though. As long as Boban Marjanovic is on this roster and getting playing time, it seems Clippers fans will be happy.
