    Boban Marjanovic impacts the game just by being huge. Getting Fall might be good practice for Ayton since he seems to get intimidated against players that are larger than him.

    While Boban is a very tall man, he is also an extremely skilled player. If he were to transport to the 90s, he would be one of the better players in the league. He is an outstanding scorer. He simply can't stay on the court because the opposing teams go small the second he is in, and he simply can't defend anyone who can play away from the rim.
    He has actual basketball skills. He played professional basketball for ten years before joining the Spurs. To suggest he impacts the game simply because of his size and compare him to Fall is just silly, if not insulting.

    He also weighs 100lb more than Fall.

    Boban is unrestricted and is one of the guys I want us to pursue should we not sign Holmes.

    I think you're referencing Bol's weight. Fall weighs almost exactly the same as Boban. He weighed in at 289 at the combine.

    Um. Tacko is 311 pounds. Boban is listed at 297. Are you thinking of someone different?

    Really?

    I don't see it. He was unplayable in the playoffs.

    The guy is just not mobile enough to be very productive in the modern nba.

    On the other hand if that really was a thing, I would be happy to have Boban.

    What gets me about Tacko is he wears 300 pounds, like a 6'4" guy wears 200 pounds. He is not fat by any means.

    What about the rest of playing defense. Against Power Forward or Centers.

    What is his history on that?

    Tacko is a physical barrier for sure. He will alter shots by his sheer size.

    A disappointing number one overall pick? No I don't think so.
