Video: Bulls players try to speak Finnish with help from Lauri Markkanen

Lauri Markkanen, Bulls

Apparently, it’s really hard to say ice cream cone in Finnish if your name is not Lauri Markkanen, and the players on the Chicago Bulls found that out the hard way.

Even with the help of Lauri Markkanen, Bulls players Kris Dunn, Cameron Payne, Zach LaVine, Wendell Carter Jr., Antonio Blakeney and Cristiano Felício couldn’t say ice cream cone in Finnish if their life depended on it:

This video is hilarious. Look how difficult it is for these players to try and say just one word in a different language. Kris Dunn sure enjoyed hearing Lauri Markkanen speak in his native language, as the two players couldn’t stop laughing next to each other.

The Bulls just got walloped by the Magic to fall to 10-28 on the season, so they might as well have some fun off the court.

Lauri Markkanen missed the early part of the season because of the right elbow injury he suffered in training camp. In the 15 games he has played in this season for the Bulls, Markkanen is averaging 17.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game while shooting 42.7 percent from the field, 40.2 percent from beyond the arc and 82.4 percent from the free-throw line.
