Boban Marjanovic stands 7-foot-3 and walks around with a frame that weighs close to 300 pounds. With that size, the L.A. Clippers big man (literally) could easily dwarf anyone from at least 90 percent of the human population. We’re not here to talk about Marjanovic’s monolithic figure, however. We are here to marvel at this video of Marjanovic riding a tiny Uber Go-Kart inside the Staples Center just before the Clippers play the visiting San Antonio Spurs.
Boban arriving to the arena in style per usual! 💯 #Motorsport

We’re pretty sure that that mini-machine was not intended to be ridden by a giant human being, but what do you know – apparently, it can also handle the torture of being burdened by a person that probably weighs like a baby elephant.
Although Boban Marjanovic can be barely seen playing on the court this season, that has not stopped him from attracting attention, albeit for reasons that are mostly not pertinent to basketball like getting a dancing tutorial from teammate Tobias Harris. Marjanovic is averaging just 5.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 0.3 blocks in only 8.1 minutes of action per game. During the rare times he is being sent to the floor, it is usually to serve the minimal purpose of using his size to intimidate an opposing player during inbound plays.
Despite getting used sparingly by the Clippers, Marjanovic does not seem to be resenting his very low minutes. Obviously he is having fun, which has made him a fan favorite wherever he goes in the NBA.
The NBA is a much better place with big Boban around.
