Aleksej Pokusevski is turning into an above-average NBA player, and fans around the league went crazy when they saw his girlfriend, Loanna Laou.
There’s no debate that she’s beautiful, and fans thought the same thing. Pokusevski is a 7-footer, so it’s not surprising to see him with Laou.
Poku has an interesting skill set. He does almost everything on the court, and now it looks like he’s doing everything off of the court, too. He was the 17th pick in the 2020 draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Pokusevski was then traded two days after the draft to the Thunder as Oklahoma City saw the talent he possessed.
This season, he’s averaging 8.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and two assists per game while shooting 44.0%, including an impressive 37.6% from 3-point range.
Although he’s played well this season, he’s expected to be out for 6-8 weeks due to an undisplaced tibial plateau fracture in his left leg.
Hopefully for him, Loanna is keeping him company during his time off, although she has her own life and studies to worry about.
Aleksej Pokusevski’s girlfriend, Loanna Laou
Loanna is from Greece, and some wonder if both of them met while Aleksej Pokusevski played basketball there. Now, she reportedly studies political science and resides in the United States. The two made their relationship public when Loanna posted Pokusevski on Instagram for his birthday.
Reports say that the couple has been in a relationship since 2019. The two seem happy together, according to what the public eye can see on their Instagram. They post about each other on Instagram quite often.
According to Loanna’s Instagram, she loves arts, traveling and criminal psychology. It surely seems that she has her head on straight, and it’s evident that Aleksej Pokusevski does too, from what is seen on and off of the court.
The couple doesn’t seem to have tied the knot yet, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see Pokusevski throw a ring on it sometime soon.
