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.”
Mills is finishing his rest period before the Spurs enter pre-season training and a season in which they will likely start as the NBA championship favourites after signing Aldridge and David West. “It was a huge off-season for us but it’s all on paper, now we have to follow through with it,” Mills said. “We will have a great training camp and an exciting start to the season.”
Australia have drawn first blood in a physical opener to the FIBA Oceania Championship, weathering a Corey Webster storm to prevail 71-59 in front of a 16,000 strong crowd at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Saturday. A Matthew Dellavedova (15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists) burst in the second term put the Boomers in front for good, while the late play of Patty Mills (17 points, 4 assists) and David Andersen (17 points) helped the hosts secure an important 12-point edge.
