Mavs’ Kristaps Porzingis tries out Boban Marjanovic’s giant computer setup
Dallas Mavericks big men Kristaps Porzingis and Boban Marjanovic are having some quality time in the Orlando bubble. Via his Instagram story, Porzingis shared a photo of himself trying out Marjanovic’s computer set up.
Does Porzingis look comfy or not? Note that the Latvian stands 7-foot-3 and it looks like he has some ample leg room underneath the table. Marjanovic, meanwhile, stands 7-foot-4 but is a lot heftier than Porzingis. It’s pretty tedious to imagine big man Marjanovic squishing himself into that computer set up.
Though there’s room for improvement, the NBA definitely considered the size and heft of its players when they scouted for possible bubble locations. They can’t simply place players like Kristaps Porzingis and Marjanovic inside rooms with tiny beds and furniture.
As one of the 22 teams set to return to action, the Mavs have a shot at qualifying for the playoffs for the first time since the 2015-16 season. They currently sport a 40-27 record for seventh in the Western Conference. Right behind them are the Memphis Grizzlies with a 32-33, followed by five other teams.
While the Mavs are not necessarily the top favorites to win the title this year, qualifying for the postseason can be tagged as a great milestone. It signifies that the Mavs have been trekking the right path with the draft picks and other roster transactions. Whether they qualify or not, the Mavs will likely build around Luka Doncic and Porzingis.
The two have performed well in their first year as teammates. But as the two always emphasized, they will only get better as time goes by. And Mark Cuban and crew will not squander this opportunity.
