Boban fills fans in on his quarantine life. He mentions spending time watching movies, but it has been difficult not having his normal routine. Marjanovic also discusses how he is communicating with his teammates and family back in Serbia.

On that final game before the suspension

Bobi was not seeing a ton of time on the court leading in the final game before the hiatus. He had played a total of 55 minutes combined in the 13 contest before the Mavericks hosted the Nuggets on March 11. Kristaps Porzingis was held out on the second night of a back-to-back, and coach Rick Carlisle decided to start Marjanovic.

The 7’4 big man rewarded the Mavs with a career night. He finished with 31 points, 17 rebounds, and two steals including a clutch fourth quarter that helped the Mavericks pick up the win.

Followill asked Boban about the game. He admitted that he did not know the season was suspended while the action was going on. It was interesting to hear that given the wild circumstances of that night.

On Tobi

Mark Followill opened up questions to fans. Marjanovic was asked about Tobias Harris. He talks about missing his friend and wishes him well.

Fans will remember their hilarious Bobi and Tobi show. The two were teammates with the Pistons, Clippers, and Sixers over three seasons leading into this campaign.

On Dirk

Marjanovic never had the opportunity to be teammates with Dirk Nowitzki, but he calls the Mavs GOAT “one of his favorite players ever”. Boban tells a funny story about Dirk surprisingly calling him by name.

Luka Doncic even stopped by and dropped a comment on the Instagram Live which caught Marjanovic’s attention.

Bobi is hilarious in the must-listen interview. He also makes a movie recommendation, talks about playing in Europe, and so much more. Please, take some time to check it out.
