After complimenting the big man during one of the team’s first workout sessions of the offseason, Marjanovic had a confession for Harris. “(Boban) said to me, ‘You know, I didn’t really like you before I met you, but you’re a great player,'” Harris recalled. “I was like, ‘Why didn’t you like me?’ He was like, ‘I just thought you were so cocky.’ So, I was like, ‘Oh, thanks!'” Harris laughed. “My greatest introduction to Boban was like, straightforward individual. From then on, we had a pretty tight group in Detroit. Guys would go out to eat a lot and get to know each other. That was where and Boban started to connect.”
Marjanovic’s humor stood out to Harris when the two grew closer. And when the big man visited Harris at his home years ago, the veteran forward couldn’t keep the visual of Boban imitating popular internet dance moves to himself. So, Harris pulled out his phone and started recording. “When he came to my crib one time, I was showing him a couple of dances like the Chicken Noodle Soup dance,” Harris explained. “That was the one that kind of like, broke the internet, and people just went crazy with it and loved it seeing this seven-foot-four guy dance. That was when I was like, ‘Oh man, Boban is social media gold.'”
“I set good screens and he’ll do the rest,” Boban said of working with Luka. “He’ll either find someone or score. It’s Luka magic. He can do everything.” Boban isn’t required to do everything. But the things he does, he can do very, very well. And his teammates are noticing. “He’s doing great,” said Jalen Brunson. “Boban, he has to be mentally strong. Coach asks him to do a lot of great things for us. He’s a very mentally strong guy. He just does what he does for us and we’re thankful to have him.”
