LOOK: Jordan Clarkson meets his ‘No. 1 fan’ in Utah

Jordan Clarkson UTAH JAZZ

‘The coolest kid. Thanks for making the day,’ says NBA’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year Jordan Clarkson of his young Utah Jazz fan

After absorbing a 119-118 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday, November 22 (Tuesday, November 23, Manila time), Utah Jazz guard and NBA’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year Jordan Clarkson gave a special shoutout to a young Jazz fan, who was dressed in full Clarkson attire at the Vivint Arena in Utah.

‘The coolest kid. Thanks for making the day. Lead with love!!!’ wrote Clarkson in an Instagram post on Wednesday, November 24.

  

Prior to the Jazz’s heartbreaking one-point loss, Clarkson spent some quality time with the ‘Mini-Clarkson’, who also copied the sharpshooting guard’s unique dreadlocks hair style and sleeved tattoos. 

However, despite the heartwarming gesture by his young fan, Clarkson failed to make his presence felt in the losing effort as he only tallied 9 points on 1-of-6 shooting from three-point range, to go with 4 assists and 3 rebounds.

Coming off a sensational 2020-2021 season, where he averaged a career-best 18.4 points, the 29-year-old Filipino-American sensation Clarkson is currently averaging 14.9 points on 35.9% shooting in 17 games for the Jazz, who are sitting at No. 3 in the Western Conference with an 11-6 record.

Clarkson and the rest of the Jazz will look to bounce back on Thursday, November 25, Manila time when they face the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road. – Rappler.com
