Boban Marjanovic posts hilarious photo with Nuggets star Nikola Jokic
Mavs big man Boban Marjanovic decided to have a little fun with an image that was taken at what appears to be a “Basketball Without Borders” event with FIBA. In the photo, Nuggets center Nikola Jokic is seen gazing at Boban with an intent focus. Marjanovic, on the other hand, was caught with a sheepish grin on his face.
To highlight the moment, Boban decided to post this image on his Twitter account. In his caption, the 7-3 Serbian wrote, “Find someone who looks at you the way Nikola looks at me.”

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich seems to have no idea what is going on behind him in this image.
Marjanovic, now 30 years of age, signed a reported two-year, $7 million deal with the Mavs on July 23. By most accounts, he should provide a solid presence in the paint. Alongside Kristaps Porzingis, who also signed with Dallas this offseason, the Mavs have the two tallest players in the NBA.
Marjanovic has spent time with several teams around the NBA, including the L.A. Clippers, Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs and, most recently, the Philadelphia 76ers. In 22 appearances with the Sixers last season, he racked up averages of 8.2 points on 62.5 percent shooting from the field, 5.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 13.9 minutes per outing.
