Magic Johnson Wants Jordan Clarkson to be Sixth Man of the Year
In his three years in the NBA where he played with the Lakers, he has averaged in double figures and was one of the most consistent contributors for the Lakers.
The 25-year-old Filipino-American made news and turned some heads as he played above expectation. Clarkson is a second round pick / 46 overall back in 2014. He has averaged 14.7 points per game last year with 44% FG percentage in 29 minutes of play.
This year, the Lakers have acquired the highly advertised rookie Lonzo Ball and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope both will be getting the starting role for the Lakers.
This leaves Jordan Clarkson with a backup role and his minutes maybe just be decreased this year as the Lakers management has shown great anticipation and support for their two new guards.
Magic Johnson has scripted the situation well and has challenged Jordan Clarkson to be the Sixthman of the year.
Jordan Clarkson responded and said that it's really nothing new to him and that his job is to make an impact when his number is called.
Coincidentally, Jordan Clarkson has been wearing jersey number 6 which should be a reminder of his task this year.
