Journalism on Display: SC Featured on The Man, The Myth, The Boban

Some feel that Mavs center Boban Marjanovic might be the most beloved player in the NBA. Preview this feature debuting on SportsCenter Sunday morning

Sunday’s “SC Featured” segment on SportsCenter will explore the story of Boban Marjanovic, a Serbian who plays for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks.

Some feel that “Boban” might be the most beloved player in the league, whether it’s his 7-foot, 4-inch height, his outgoing personality, his work ethic – or his hilarious impersonation of Lurch from “The Addams Family” TV show saying, “You rang?” Gavin Cote produced the feature, which was reported by Sam Borden. It will debut in the 8 a.m. ET edition of SportsCenter.

“The Big Mo Show” – a feature about Baltimore sports fan Mo Gaba that debuted on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown last season – has won first place in the National Headliner Awards in the television category of Feature, Sports or Human Interest Story. This feature, also nominated for two Emmy Awards, is produced by Harry Hawkings, edited by Katelin Stevens and reported by Sam Borden. These awards honor the best in journalism in the United States and are one of the oldest and largest annual contests recognizing journalistic merit in the communications industry.
