Boban Marjanovic is a 7-foot-3, 290-pound center for the San Antonio Spurs. This is the 27-year old's first season in the NBA, and like most of Gregg Popovich's foreign imports, he's working out well. Though he's only played 9.5 minutes per game in the month of December, Marjanovic has managed to average 8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1 block in that limited time. His playing time is steadily increasing, so don't be surprised if he becomes a pivotal role player for San Antonio by the time the post-season rolls around.
But on to more pressing matters—Marjanovic's hands are roughly the size of hubcaps. Seriously, just look at these paws:
That's a shot from Boban's post-game interview with Spurs sideline reporter Andrew Monaco. Monaco appears to be a perfectly normal-sized human, so the fact that Boban's hand nearly engulfs his entire forearm is somewhat frightening.
A word of advice to the Spurs: don't high-five Boban. Or fist bump him, for that matter. And maybe keep a really close eye on him if you let him pet your new kitten. Here's some highlights of Boban putting those humongous hands to good use:
