2.22m giant feasts on NBA opponents

NBA players are notoriously bigger than the average human being with the average height coming in at around roughly six-foot six-inches.

Every now and then however even NBA players are made to look small when a true giant walks among them.

And that's exactly what happens when Serbian monster Boban Marjanovic steps foot onto the hardwood.

Marjanovic stands a ridiculous 2.22m tall and can touch the 10-foot tall NBA rim without even leaving his feet.

Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid had the perfect reaction the first time he stood next to him on the court and then there was the incredible moment when he played keep away with Anthony Davis.

Davis measures in at 6'11" and was turned into a little brother desperately attempting to swat the ball from his older brother.

But as fun as those moments were, they pale in comparison to the show the Clippers big man put on in the season opener against the Denver Nuggets.

The towering big man feasted on his rivals who had no answers for how to stop his sheer size.

He first struck early on in the game with a huge dunk, that didn't even require him to leave his feet.

But he then took things a step further in the final quarter when he threw down another huge dunk on a host of Nuggets players.

After throwing down the jam, Marjanovic hung onto the rim and starred down the camera as his teammates ran back on defence.

A time-out was called and during the break, the Clippers staff had to come out onto the court and fix the rim. No that's not a lie.

Marjonovic came off the bench but dumped in 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds in just 18 minutes of court time in the Clippers' 107-98 defeat and looks like exploding in his fourth season in the league.
