WATCH: Boban Hoops with Adam Sandler, Other NBA Stars

Various NBA stars including Mavericks' Boban Marjanovic are filmed playing basketball in an open run with Hollywood star Adam Sandler.

DALLAS - Movie star and comedian Adam Sandler might be a fan of the New York Knicks, but most recently he's been hooping with Dallas Mavericks center Boban Marjanovic. 

Going up against the 7-foot-4 Marjanovic, Sandler's handles and shooting ability are quite impressive for a 5-foot-10, 54-year-old. 

Sandler is currently filming his new movie titled "Hustle" and spending a lot of time around Philadelphia. He's been filmed playing various pickup basketball games over the years, lately with Trae Young, Tobias Harris, Jordan Clarkson, and Marjanovic.

Several members of the Sixers will be featured in Sandler's film about a former basketball recruiter that tries to restart his career by bringing a player from overseas to play in the NBA.

In the video below, Sandler hits a jumper from an assist from Young. Also, don't miss the Marjanovic dunk around the 18-second mark.
