There aren't many people on Earth who could hold their own vs. an NBA player if they were to play one-on-one.
As Brian Scalabrine once told a heckler, they're closer to LeBron than we are to him, so we shouldn't even dare take our chances against a bottom-of-the-bench kind of guy. It's not going to be pretty.
The same can be said about NBA players trying to guard a 7'4'' guy inside the restricted area. I mean, he's inches taller than most people alive, so it's not like there's much you can do to stop them.
Recently, Luka Doncic learned it the hard way, as Boban Marjanovic completely owned him with an emphatic dunk during a friendly one-on-one game.
Gladly for him, the friendly giant also helped him know what it was like to dunk on a 7'4'' specimen, as Marjanovic pretty much carried him to help him dunk on the very next play.
This isn't the first time that Doncic and Marjanovic are spotted having a good time in practice. To be honest, they're two of the funniest, most charismatic dudes in the league, and we just can't get enough of these wholesome content.
All jokes aside, Doncic will need as much help as he can get from Boban as the rest of his teammates if the Mavericks intend to make a deep playoff run this season.
Once again, the Mavs couldn't get past the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, even despite Doncic's video game-like numbers. Hopefully, this time will be different.
