Spurs’ Marjanovic on fan support: ‘I don’t drink Red Bull, but they give me wings’

Everyone loves Boban.

San Antonio Spurs rookie Boban Marjanovic is officially a national sensation. On Monday night, in a win over the Brooklyn Nets, the 7’3" center dropped 13 points in 13 minutes, making five of his seven shot attempts. 

It was another solid performance from a player opponents still have yet to figure out, and fans can’t get enough. When asked about all the support he’s receiving, here’s what Marjanovic told ESPN after the game:

“I enjoy it every time,” he said. “They give me support and some energy. It’s good. I don’t drink Red Bull, but they give me wings.”

It feels like every single time he plays, a must-see highlight sprouts up across the Internet. And deservedly so; his stint against the Nets was no different:

Marjanovic’s PER is 32.1, which would lead the league if he played enough minutes to qualify. Steph Curry’s PER is 31.6. Marjanovic is clearly the superior player.
