Dallas Mavericks big man Boban Marjanovic showed off his Yoga skills on May 2 as part of a Mavs Cares initiative to keep people active.

Dallas Mavericks center Boban Marjanovic quickly became a fan favorite. He was already a movie star before putting on a Mavs uniform. Bobi is a fun-loving person. He always has a smile on his face and brightens your day. His teammates love him. Marjanovic is easy to root for because of his personality.

The 7’4 big man also endears himself to fans by saving the day. He twice had to retrieve the ball after it got stuck behind the backboard. Marjanovic used a broomstick to quickly remove it. The first time, Kristaps Porzingis tried unsuccessfully to do so.

This all makes no mention of Boban’s on-court talents. He had 31 points and 17 rebounds in the final game before the NBA suspended play. Bobi changes the game nearly every time he steps on the court. He is the tenth best center in the NBA in ESPN’s real plus-minus. Marjanovic can play.

He is also never afraid to show off his humor. Boban did some Yoga to promote staying active during the pandemic. Fans can see the video below.

Marjanovic struggled a bit with a few of the poses, but who can blame him? Yoga is a challenge. Shout out to Boban for putting in work at home while play is suspended.

It will be interesting to see if his role expands a bit when the season resumes. Bobi is coming off arguably the best game of his career. Coach Rick Carlisle likes playing Kristaps Porzingis at the five as the Mavs go small, though. Expect Marjanovic to be a matchups play, but perhaps, he finds his way on to the court a bit more.

Hopefully, you are staying safe and healthy. Do not forget to continue exercising during the pandemic. It can be difficult to motivate yourself but keep after it. Wishing you well.
