Who is her famous husband?
Born in August 1988, Boban Marjanovic is a Serbian professional basketball player, currently signed with the Houston Rockets of the NBA. He has also played for the San Antonio Spurs, Detroit Pistons, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Clippers, and Philadelphia 76ers.
Born and raised in the small city of Boljevac in eastern Serbia, he was tall from a young age. Fun fact: his family is of average height, with his father standing at 5 feet 9 inches. According to some reports, a pituitary gland condition caused his gigantism.
He began playing basketball for the young team in his city. By the age of 14, he grew to 6 feet 10 inches and transferred to the professional team in Serbia, Hemofarm. He remained there until 2010, at which point he signed with CSKA Moscow. Before making it to the NBA, he also played for Zalgiris, Radnicki Kragujevac, Mega Vizura, and Crvena Zvezda. He was named MVP of the Serbian league for the 2012-13 season.
During his time with Crvena Zvezda, Boban played in the EuroLeague, from where he was noticed and drafted by NBA teams. The San Antonio Spurs were the first to give him a chance, signing him to a $1.2 million contract in July 2015. During his time with the Spurs, he also spent time in the G League, with the affiliate Austin Spurs.
He was a restricted free agent in the summer of 2016 and signed a three-year deal with the Detroit Pistons. The Spurs declined to match the offer, and Marjanovic moved to the east coast, playing for Detroit.
After two years in Detroit, he was part of the trade that sent Blake Griffin to Detroit, and Boban, alongside Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley to the Los Angeles Clippers. One year later, he was traded, again with his buddy Tobias Harris, this time to the Philadelphia 76ers. Currently, he is signed to the Houston Rockets.
His biggest success in the NBA was making the Conference Finals with the Dallas Mavericks in 2022. As for his National team career, he won gold medals with the junior team at the 2007 FIBA Under-19 World Championship and the 2008 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship.
With the senior team, he appeared at EuroBasket 2017, with the team winning the silver medal. They lost in the final to Slovenia, with Boban averaging 12.4 points and 4.8 rebounds in the tournament.
