The 21-year old Fin had a great rookie season as he averaged 15.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game with the Chicago Bulls. In the off-season, Markkanen is currently working out and getting ready for the 2018-2019 NBA season.

Lauri met NBA legend Yao Ming and posted a picture on his Twitter account. Even if he is a seven-footer, he still looks short in comparison with the President of the Chinese Basketball Association.
