Boban Marjanovic’s daily devotion to becoming a better player has made a positive impression on his teammates. “He’s a tremendously hard worker,” Spurs guard Patty Mills said. “High work ethic, always…whether it’s in the weight room or on the court.” But there’s something else about the 7-foot-3 Serbian that has caught the attention of his teammates. “He loves to sing. He loves to rap,” Mills said. “That’s my little inside scoop on him.” Rap? Really? “Yeah…and with a Serbian accent, which makes it even better,” Mills said. “In English…I think it’s English.” Whether Marjanovic can carry a tune is irrelevant. The point is, the big man is fitting in nicely in the locker room. “He’s a really, really genuine nice guy,” Mills said. “…He loves to crack a joke all the time – some are really funny, some you got to laugh at to make him feel good.”
Marjanovic has been overwhelmed by the help he has gotten throughout camp from Spurs captain Tim Duncan, who advised him about defending Drummond during a fourth quarter timeout Sunday. “I cannot explain the feeling I have when he does this for me,” Marjanovic said. “Big player, huge name, one of the best players in the world is explaining something, giving me some advice? Every time, I listen very carefully and try to do what he says because I know how he does it and this is the best for me, too.
The Serbian National team and Marjanovic’s agent wanted the Spurs to reconsider their decision, after citing the original physical conducted in Milan, didn’t reveal an injury. Thursday, in an exclusive interview with Blic Sport, Marjanovic said his intentions were to play for Serbia at Eurobasket, but ultimately, with the Spurs being his new team for his professional career, the final decision was in their hands. (The translation of quotes from the original article do need a few minor adjustments to English). “I’m so sorry for everything that happened, I had a great desire and motivation to play for the national team,” Marjanovic told Blic. “With impatience I waited start preparing the national team and work with the screen Djordjevic, but nothing is in my hands. From the first days of preparation there was a great atmosphere in the team, it’s a fantastic group of guys that I am convinced that it will be able to achieve the desired goal and placed on the Olympics.”
In a series of tweets in Serbian on Tuesday, Marjanovic’s European-based agent, Misko Raznatovic, disputed the diagnosis, saying his client’s bone structure is normal for a player of his excessive size. Marjanovic’s appeal options are limited. Language in the NBA’s agreement with FIBA awards NBA teams broad power to hold a contracted player out of international competition in light of a “reasonable health concern.”
