Joakim is a French-Swedish-American professional basketball player. He comes from a long line of professional athletes that includes his father, who was a French tennis star during the '80s, and his grandfather, who was a professional soccer player. He grew up in New York City and played basketball for three different prep schools. His success in high school led him to a university scholarship at the premier basketball program in Florida, where he won back-to-back national championships. While in school, his passionate desire to be a champion was evident when he passed up the opportunity to jump into pro basketball after his sophomore year and stayed with his team to win another championship.
Joakim was drafted 9th overall in the 2007 pro basketball draft and quickly became one of the young cornerstones of his franchise. Over the last three years Joakim has solidified his position as one of the premier centers in the league on the strength of his athleticism and high-energy style of play, with a reputation as a physical presence who comes through in the clutch. Joakim has been using BSN® products for some time now to strengthen his naturally athletic physique, and his outstanding success on the court and charismatic personality make him a perfect ambassador for the BSN® brand.
