Arizona's center Lauri Markkanen lives ‘savage life'

Arizona's Finland finisher is living in his words, the "savage life."

LAS VEGAS - Savage Life. What does it mean?

It started out as just a saying for Arizona forward Rawle Alkins.

“I’ve been saying savage life since my sophomore year of high school,” Alkins explained on Saturday night. “I came in here saying savage life, then Lauri started saying it, then Dusan, then Keanu, then Kadeem, so hopefully it starts to become a trend. 

Now, it’s a way of life for the Wildcats, especially for center Lauri Markkanen.

"I hashtag it on all my Instagram pictures, then Lauri started to use it,” Alkins said. 

The 7 footer is 9,000 miles from home, but is more comfortable than ever.
