But sadly, all the photos os Ana disappeared from Bismack’s social media. The whole fuss could only mean that the two broke up.

The NBA star's parents were very lenient when it came to the six feet and eight inches (2.03m) tall hunk leaving his country for his basketball career. In return, he wanted to give the same opportunity to his siblings. All of his siblings pursued their higher education in the United States.
Career: From Hardships To NBA
Bismack learned to play basketball early on in his life in DRC, despite all the struggles he faced when he was a kid. He did not have any basketball shoes and had to walk forty-five minutes to get to his school. Even then, there were several days without a meal because he could not afford it. He recalled to The Undefeated in July 2016 that it was tough, but the hardships taught him a lesson.
“It has made me thankful. I could sit here and think of all the worst things that I went through. But they weren’t the worst just to be the worst, they were the worst to teach me a lesson.”
Things changed when a pro basketball team offered him a contract in Qatar at the age of 16. His big break eventually came when he got invited to play in Oregon at the Hoop Summit in 2011 as he was spotted by many international coaches and was then picked in the 2011 draft by Sacramento Kings.
Bismack now plays with the Charlotte Hornets in jersey number 8.
