Boban Marjanovic was not exactly renowned for his jumper when he joined the Sixers. He’d played 164 NBA games and hadn’t made a three-point shot.

Oh, how things have changed. 

Marjanovic swished his second three-pointer in three games Thursday night in the Sixers’ win over the Nets.

And he also showcased his soft touch in the paint, scoring 16 points in 18 minutes. 

One especially beautiful turnaround jumper inspired Marjanovic to let us all know that “Kobe!” isn’t the only acceptable thing to shout out when attempting such a shot.

So, next time you’re playing in a pickup game and drain a tough fadeaway, or toss a piece of paper into the trash, don’t say "Kobe!" … you now have the Bobi seal of approval.
