Jordan Clarkson – LOS ANGELES LAKERS POINT GUARD
22-year-old Jordan Clarkson, a point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers and only Filipino-American in the NBA, finished his first season in the NBA averaging 11.9 points per game. Shortly after commencing finishing his junior year season at the University of Missouri, Clarkson declared himself for the 2014 NBA Draft. He was drafted in the 2nd Round of the 2014 NBA Draft with the 46th Overall Pick by the Washington Wizards, and traded to the Los Angeles Lakers later that night. After turning heads at the NBA Summer League in July 2014, he continued his strong play at the beginning of his rookie season with a 28-point, 5-rebound and 5-assist D-League debut on November 15, 2014 and a 35-point, 11-assist and 6-rebound performance against the Reno Big Horns on January 3rd, 2015. In the same month, Los Angeles Lakers Head Coach Byron Scott made Clarkson the starting Point Guard for the Lakers. With his consistent performance on the court, averaging 15.8 points, 5.2 assists, and 4.8 rebounds, he was named the Western Conference Rookie of the Month in March. In the game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Clarkson scored a career-high 30 points, and together with Jeremy Lin, they became the first Asian American starting backcourt in NBA history. For his stellar rise to stardom, Jordan is a top nominee for the NBA Rookie of the Year Award. Prior to being drafted by the NBA, Clarkson played basketball first at the University of Tulsa where by his sophomore season, he averaged 16.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 33.9 minutes per game, and was named to the All-Conference USA first team and the NABC All-District 11 team.
