Only 16 years old, but currently measured at 7’2 (and still growing).
Not unlike Tim Duncan, he was originally a nationally ranked swimmer before deciding to focus on basketball. Considering his height and youth, looks to be a very fluid athlete.
His father, Björn Zikarsky is a former freestyle swimmer from Germany, who won the bronze medal in the 4×100 m freestyle relay at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. His mother, whom stands at 6’1 is a former champion triathlete.
