The Utah Jazz power forward Lauri Markkanen has officially reported for his military service in Finland this week.
“It’s a new challenge I’m gonna go after here,” Markkanen told YLE News. “Just like on the basketball court, I’m going to try and give everything I’ve got every day, and I know everything’s going to be fine.”
He continued: “I’m excited. It’s something I’ve never done and I’m sure I’m going to learn a lot of things.”
