I can’t stop looking at pictures of Boban Marjanovic

“No, I’m not Andre the Giant.”

Here’s a confession that probably won’t shock you: outside of former UK players, I don’t follow the NBA. I just don’t. If that tarnishes your opinion of me as a “sportswriter,” well, sorry. However, when I saw all the stories, pictures, and videos of Spurs big man Boban Marjanovic this morning, I had to find out more.

Marjanovic is 7’3″, 290 lbs. with hands approximately the size of large house cats. With Tim Duncan sidelined with a knee injury, Marjanovic stepped in and couldn’t be stopped last night, scoring 17 points on 7-7 shooting against the Timberwolves.

He made 7′ Karl Towns and his teammates look tiny:

I mean, look at these hands:




I never thought I’d compare myself to Tyler Hansbrough, but I think we had the same reaction when we saw Marjanovic:

    Wow! That dude is huge. Towns does look average size when standing close to him. That look on
    Hansbrough’s face is priceless.

      I’ll say it. Big hands, big nose. Or is it big ears? Either way. I’m always fascinated how it’s always the guys who bring it up. Guys with smaller hands. Rachel on Friends said it was the distance from the tip of your thumb to the tip of your index finger. I bring that to your attention because I know every single one of you guys will see how far you can stretch those fingers! Girls, mention this when you’re around some guys. It’s a laugh riot! (And you might learn a thing or two.)

      Seinfeld dated a girl with hands like that. She had “man hands.”

    The sad thing is, statistically/historically, this guy will be lucky to live to see 45 years of age, because of his size.
