Jeremy Lin heaps praises on Jordan Clarkson, Filipino fans

Former NBA star Jeremy Lin had a few great words for his former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Jordan Clarkson, and the basketball loving Filipino fans in a short yet very genuine Twitter exchange on Tuesday, April 6, Manila time.

“Been amazing to see what JC has been doing this season and Filipino fans are some of the best in the world!! @JordanClarksons #6thManOfTheYear,” wrote Lin in response to a New York Times story on the Fil-Am sensation Clarkson.

Clarkson, the top candidate for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award this season, replied saying, “My brother, respect!! 💯,”

Lin and Clarkson suited up for the Lakers during the 2014-2015 season, together with the late great Kobe Bryant, where they finished with a 21-61 win-loss record.

Lin averaged 11.2 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 4.6 assists that season, while Clarkson, who was a rookie at that time, averaged 11.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.5 assists.

Since then, the Asian-American duo had moved on to separate ways, where both players achieved success playing for different ball clubs.

Lin, who stirred up the “Linsanity” craze in 2012, won an NBA championship with the Toronto Raptors in 2019, before joining the Beijing Ducks in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), and the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League. 

Clarkson, on the other hand, has been a having a terrific season for the league-leading Utah Jazz, where he is currently putting up 17.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.2 assists off the bench. – Rappler.com
