Many players have said that Dallas Mavericks center Boban Marjanovic may be the nicest guy in the NBA. Not a single soul is doubting this claim. On Sunday, Marjanovic once again showed his kindness and his hoop skills as well—especially with a broom.

Stadium personnel could've easily pulled out a ladder to get the ball themselves. After all, this is not really a rare occurrence. Even during the game itself, the ball has been nudged in that similar spot and caused several minutes of delay.
But Marjanovic is just too nice. Why let the ball boys do their thing when he can easily poke the ball out himself? Of course, the task isn't as easy as it looks. But the gentle giant showed off his perseverance.
Unfortunately for Marjanovic and the rest of the Mavericks, they lost to the Kings, 111-99. He played 12 minutes and finished with eight points and seven rebounds.
The Mavericks are now in seventh place in the Western Conference. Every win matters at this point if they want to avoid the play-in tournament. But whatever happens, for sure, Boban Marjanovic's kindness remains undefeated.
