How does Boban Marjanovic help the Dallas Mavericks off the court?
Marjanovic is a fantastic teammate. The 7’4 big man lights up a room. He is one of the funniest and most beloved players in the NBA (subscription required).
Boban is good friends with superstar Luka Doncic. He lifts the locker room and brings positive vibes to the team. Having a player on the bench that can provide leadership, a veteran presence, and some humor is important during long grind on an NBA regular season.
Marjanovic is quite successful away from the court too. He starred in John Wick 3, appeared in commercials, and even had his own series. Fans saw him reunite with old friend and teammate Tobias Harris for a Goldfish crackers commercial recently that was absolutely hilarious.
Coach Carlisle had this to say about Boban after his 15-point 12-rebound performance against the Washington Wizards on April 3.
"“Boban’s got a lot going on. He’s got to fit us in around his commercial making schedule, and that can’t be easy either. It’s good that he fits us in. Look, he’s a productive guy. We tend to look for some desirable situations that we think are good situations for him to play, but he’s going to be a factor one way or another in any game he goes in.”"
Boban Marjanovic does have a lot going on, but everyone is glad he fits in his time with the Dallas Mavericks. The 7’4 big man is a key piece of the team both on and off the court. Will he back with the Mavs for the 2021-2022 season, though?
