After a fun weekend of impressive wins for the Utah Jazz including a win in the All-Star Skills Challenge, we get to see Lauri Markkanen represent the Utah Jazz in the All-Star Game. It’s a story we’ve written about all season, how the Jazz were worried that trading Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert might lead to the team not having a single representative at the game. And then Lauri Markkanen arrived and did something neither Donovan Mitchell or Rudy Gobert did, he made the all-star team and did it as a starter. It’s a truly remarkable feat and something that he should be incredibly proud of.
