Boban Plays Tennis

Boban Marjanovic appears to be spending some of his offseason back in his native Serbia, which has produced tennis stars like reigning Wimbledon champ Novak Djokovic and former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic. As tall, smooth-moving players with big serves increasingly find success in the men’s game, it’s become tempting to wonder what an elite basketball player might be able to do on a tennis court, given time and training. With that lateral quickness, imposing wingspan, and serve trajectory, it would be good fun to watch an NBA player get accustomed to a tennis racket.

Big Boban does not yet look accustomed to a tennis racket, or this earth. But I’d still poop my pants if he charged the net.
