The Dallas Mavericks have turned to Boban Marjanovic in five of their last six games as they are looking for a spark. The 7’4 big man delivered against the Spurs and Pelicans to help Dallas pick up two victories. Bobi is a game-changer thanks to his size and scoring chops.

Marjanovic is the Mavs' third center behind Dwight Powell and Willie Cauley-Stein. He will not be asked to play in every game, but head coach Jason Kidd will continue turning to him to shift the momentum in a contest. Expect Boban to keep delivering too.

Bobi is no stranger to time on the screen. From movie roles to TV commercials, Marjanovic is becoming a star. His latest venture is the LEGO Super Mario challenge where he and teammate Katelyn Ohashi are competing against soccer legend Carli Lloyd and Olympic gold medalist wrestler Jordan Burroughs. Boban and Ohashi lost the first competition, but they were ready to bounce back in round two.

Dallas Mavericks big man Boban Marjanovic shows off his climbing ability

This week, all four competitors had to climb up structures to earn points for their teams. Boban dominated a 20-point challenge and showed off his impressive climbing ability. Fans can see this week’s challenge below.

The two teams tied in week two with one more challenge remaining. Can Boban and teammate Katelyn Ohashi win the final week and take bragging rights in the competition over Jordan Burroughs and Carli Lloyd? It will certainly be fun to watch as Marjanovic always brings the laughs.

Boban Marjanovic will continue to be a key piece off the bench for the Dallas Mavericks too. Expect him to get some run every time the team gets into an offensive rut, and Bobi will likely deliver some buckets. His impact in the locker room is massive too because everybody loves Boban.
