VIDEO: Mavs’ Boban Marjanovic gives hilarious postgame interview after first double-double of the season
Dallas Mavericks center Boban Marjanovic arguably had his best game of the season in their 130-84 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday. The Serbian big man scored 15 points and hauled in 16 rebounds in 23 minutes for his first double-double of the season with the Mavs.
After the game, Boban gave a priceless post-game interview for appearing on TV for the first time this season. He gave a shoutout to his mom, his dad, and the rest of his family.

As majestic as he looks, Marjanovic is just as funny. He is simply one of the most entertaining figures in the NBA today.
Boban’s performance for the Mavs wasn’t a garbage time special either. Marjanovic was already up to 11 points and seven rebounds at half time. He then proceeded to secure his double-double playing the final 14 minutes of the game.
Marjanovic has played sparingly for the Mavs this season. Prior to Saturday’s game, he has only appeared in nine games, putting up averages of 6.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in just 12 minutes a night.
The Serbian behemoth has never really been one to garner much playing time on the floor. For his career, Marjanovic is averaging just 9.9 minutes per game.
Despite his short stints on the court, Boban still makes a huge impact for his teams. In terms of per-minute production, the 7-foot-3 center hovers at the top of the list. Marjanovic is putting up career-averages of 22.5 points and 14.4 rebounds per 36 minutes.
