I can't find any physical specs for Andrew Monaco, but I can tell you this: He is a grown man.
And as a grown man, the San Antonio Spurs sideline reporter probably becomes very aware of certain things when shaking another man's hand—specifically, his own hand's size, temperature and grip strength in relation to the one he is shaking.
From there, these mental measurements are noted and tucked away for later, in case you have to fight this man and/or ask for his daughter's hand in marriage sometime in the future.
This is all to say this: Handshake monitoring is a primitive way of measuring yourself while kicking the other guy's tires, and I can only imagine the data Monaco's brain involuntarily downloaded after encountering the monster mitts of Boban Marjanovic.
Interviewing Marjanovic after his 17-point performance against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night, Monaco wrapped things up by extending his hand to the 7'3" Serbian.
The Spurs tweeted out video of the interview following the 101-95 home win. It ended two handshake that looked less like a handshake and more like a venus fly trap feeding (skip to 2:47 mark):

That is quite insane, even for an NBA hand. But considering he has a 7'8" wingspan, it probably shouldn't surprise us to see Marjanovic's foam-finger-sized hands dwarfing the average-sized sideline reporter's grasp.
Now we just need Marjanovic to shake hands with Kawhi Leonard and create clean fission energy that will power the world and end hunger.
I've done the math. It checks out.
Dan is on Twitter. Shaking a man's hand as hard as you can is the physical equivalent of going out of your way to tell people you only drink black coffee.
