Dallas Mavericks big man Boban Marjanovic ended up being too tall to take part in a prank alongside teammate Luka Doncic.
The Dallas Mavericks had plenty of reasons to be happy Saturday night after beating the Denver Nuggets by a final score of 116-103. Luka Doncic and Boban Marjanovic were so happy they decided to join in on the postgame interview being conducted by Josh Richardson.
Fans have seen this before. Some teammates come over, make faces in the background, put up bunny ears, and it is all in good fun. But this time, NBA fans saw something truly hilarious. See for yourself.
Boban Marjanovic too tall to make it on television
This is amazing. Doncic comes over to have some fun and Boban is right behind him. Only we never see his face as he is far too tall at 7-foot-4 to make it onto the screen. Remember, Doncic is no short guy himself at 6-foot-7.
Marjanovic doesn’t seem to care or notice his lack of face time. He is just having a good time and it is hard not to love the duo of Luka and Boban.
The Mavericks as a whole are starting to have more fun after a tough 9-14 start. The team is now 20-17 as of Sunday night, which is good enough for the eighth spot in a competitive Western Conference.
Doncic is dominating as usual, looking like a perennial MVP contender. Marjanovic is also looking great, just in a much smaller sample size. He averages 4.5 points and 4.0 rebounds per game while only playing 7.7 minutes per game. That is some amazing efficiency, even if he only gets one stint off the bench per game.
The Mavericks are winning, and that means everyone is having fun. NBA camera operators will now have to adjust to avoid another hilarious mishap.
