Sweet Towering Prince Boban Marjanovic Injured In Nasty Fall

Chris Thompson Feb 26, 2019. 7 comments

Late in the fourth quarter of Monday night’s narrow road win over the Pelicans, huge galoot Boban Marjanovic got tangled up with Pelicans not-nearly-as-big man Cheick Diallo going for a loose ball. Boban’s right leg got folded up between Diallo’s legs, and twisted hideously as the two players fell to the floor. As the action raced the other way, the bigger fellow was not able to get back to his feet.

This was awful to watch. The twist in the leg is gnarly as hell, but Boban appeared not to fully register the problem right away, until he tried to roll and get his legs under him. Some combination of the pain in his leg and the realization of the injury seemed to hit home especially hard, and then when he was finally helped to his feet he appeared unable to put any weight at all on the leg. As a person who very much enjoys watching Boban do Boban things on an NBA basketball court, allow me to say this sucks shit!

Boban has settled in nicely as a backup to Joel Embiid in Philadelphia, and even if that weren’t the case he still does cool shit like dunk the ball by just leaning backwards and sticking his hand in the air. He will reportedly have an MRI on his right knee on Tuesday. Maybe while he heals up, he will still be able to be in movies .

The combustible Nationals bullpen tried very hard to give this away, but in the end the five runs their hitters put up on terrifying buzzsaw Gerrit Cole held up, and the Nationals escaped Game 1 with a 5–4 victory to snatch away home-field advantage in the World Series.Cole looked very much like his normal, dominant self in the first...

It seems only fair to show you this before you’ve had breakfast. So: wanna see something gross?

The Denver Broncos are one of three 0-4 NFL teams (assuming no tie, there should be one more after Bengals-Steelers tonight), and they’ve achieved that record thanks to generous helpings of incompetence and rotten luck. Also, they’ll now have to ride out the rest of this season without one of their best players, as edge rusher Bradley Chubb is...
