Catching up with Boban

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Spurs center Boban Marjanovic had a breakout campaign this season, not only establishing himself as a solid NBA rotation player, but also becoming a breakout social media star. After taking a few weeks off following the end of the Spurs season, Boban stopped by Spurs.com to answer some twitter questions (he likes listening to Drake) and talk about what he’s done this offseason (he visited the zoo, among other things)…

Boban Marjanovic shows off some dance moves

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — San Antonio Spurs center Boban Marjanovic has become popular in his rookie season, as much for his skill and ability as for his enormous size. And now we can say that Boban has really made it: He’s in a local car commercial in San Antonio. In this ad we discover that when Boban is looking for a car, what’s really important is a booming sound system. Can’t really disagree with that…

POSTERIZED POLL Week of Jan. 22

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Like we always do at this time, let’s take a look at the best instances of people getting #POSTERIZED over the last week and, at the bottom of the post, you can place your vote for a winner.

Boban Marjanovic is huge

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — San Antonio Spurs rookie Boban Marjanovic is obviously a big man. A native of Serbia, Boban plays center, stands 7-3, weighs almost 300 pounds, and has a 7-8 wingspan. And while he has only played sporadically thus far this season, Boban has made an impact in the games where he has played, perhaps never more so than on Monday night when he came off the bench to score 17 points in 15 minutes against the Timberwolves. (According to this article, he also won a jump ball without jumping.) As Spurs forward David West said after the game, “I think people look at his size and sort of think he’s a big stiff, but Boban’s a hell of a player.”

But what has really set the internet abuzz the last 24 hours has been the postgame interview Boban did with Spurs sideline reporter Andrew Monaco. It’s a great couple of minutes, and Boban seems like a genuinely funny and personable teammate. If you want to watch the entire interview, click here. But the incredible part comes at the end when Boban gives Monaco a handshake, and Monaco’s hands basically disappear…

One other clip that really puts Boban’s size in perspective: Earlier this season against the Charlotte Hornets, Boban checked in at the end of a game and lined up next to Tyler Hansbrough, who is listed at 6-9. But standing next to Boban, he looks like a child…
