Boban Marjanovic wins NBA hiatus MVP award after masked video
Dallas Mavericks cult hero Boban Marjanovic is off doing Bobi things again. This time around, the Mavs big man decided to do an amazing lip-sync video with a face mask on.
Yup, you read that one right.
Here’s the clip in question, which was shared by the official Mavs Twitter account:
Friday night social distancing dance party 🤣

For those who might not be familiar with the dope track Boban was singing to, that was Aqua’s 1997 mega-hit “Barbie Girl.” Marjanovic’s decision to use this particular song is hilarious on so many levels.
The 7-foot-4 Mavs center went all out in his interpretation of the 90s pop song, and the result was glorious. At this point, the league should just hand over the NBA hiatus MVP trophy to him.
The best part here is that Boban Marjanovic did not forget to promote social distancing. Not only was he wearing a protective face mask, but he was a meter or two away from the next person in the room. It seems that Bobi was hosting some sort of social distancing party at his home. If he wasn’t, then he certainly got us fooled, as the undeniably festive mood around the dinner table was simply electrifying.
All jokes aside though, Boban will be looking to join his Mavs teammates soon, with the team preparing for the season restart. Prior to the hiatus, Marjanovic averaged 6.3 points and 4.1 rebounds in 9.1 minutes per game. His playing time may be limited, but there’s no denying that he will be playing a crucial role for Dallas off the bench moving forward.
