Salah Mejri 10 Points/5 Blocks Full Highlights (11/7/2017)

After tonight, Salah “The Tunisian Munition” Mejri is averaging almost 6 blocks per 36. Can you say “Mark Eaton”? What about “Manute Bol”?

Salah Mejri 17 Points/5 Dunks Full Highlights (1/13/2016)

Salah Mejri: the next Boban Marjanovic? The similarities are eerie. -From a country that is not well known to Americans? Check. -Buried deep on the end of the bench? Check. -Played in D-League due to bench-buried state? Checkeroo. -Big? Check. -Really big? Check. -Able to deposit the ball into the rim directly, without even really…
