7’3″ Boban Marjanovic Makes Pacers Defenders Look Like Little Kids


He’s 29 years old, he’s Serbian and a former Euroleague MVP … for three consecutive years! He has been quite successful whilst in Europe, so the Spurs (of course the Spurs, who else?) were intrigued by his combination of size, skill, attitude and decided to give him a try.

After making a name for himself in San Antonio, he signed with the Detroit Pistons and got paid big time, with a three-year, $21 million contract.
He hasn’t been playing an awful a lot of minutes this season but he has been producing very interesting numbers every time he steps on the court. As crazy as it sounds for a role player, Boban currently owns the records for career PER, ORTG, WS/48 and TS% in NBA history.

But the first thing you’ll recognize when seeing Boban Marjanovic is how incredibly tall he is. Standing at 7’3″, he is a giant, even for NBA standards. During last night’s game against the Indiana Pacers, his size became comical, as it seemed like he was playing against litte kids. After grabbing an offensive rebound, Boban went for the dunk, only that he almost didn’t have to jump, while being surrounded by three chanceless defenders.
