VIDEO: Jordan Clarkson Cracks Top 10 Dunks List In NBA Summer League

During the NBA Summer League last month, Jordan Clarkson was arguably the best player on the floor for the Los Angeles Lakers. Not only did Clarkson continue to show his dedication to improving his craft, but he also came away with one of the best highlights in Las Vegas with a posterizing dunk on Jack Cooley of the Utah Jazz.

What will Jordan Clarkson make this season? Find out here!

Clarkson made quite the impression during his rookie year earning NBA All-Rookie First Team honors along with Andrew Wiggins, Nerlens Noel, Elfrid Payton and Nikola Mirotic. Clarkson wasn’t satisfied with the recognition as one of the top-five rookies in his first season with the Lakers and intends to continue proving his worth in his sophomore campaign in Los Angeles.

Although Clarkson was unable to lead the Lakers to more than one win during Summer League, the second-year guard has shown enough to the team’s coaching staff to potentially earn a starting role. Clarkson’s emergence as a potential star in the making has convinced head coach Byron Scott to keep him as starter. Kobe Bryant will move to small forward while rookie D’Angelo Russell will likely be the team’s starting point guard.

Nice dunk! I think Cunningham should have been higher though

    1. don’t sweat it, bro. not a huge deal. the kings won summer league last year.

      didn’t mean shit.

  • what’s going to make losing our pick to the hated 76ers next year easier to swallow is the knowledge that in last year’s draft we really got TWO lottery picks in randle and JC. clarkson will take over kobe’s two-guard spot and be part of one of the NBA’s best young backcourts. one of the most shrewd decisions mitch has ever made was to buy that #46 selection from the wizards.

    1. if he keeps improving. if this is his ceiling he wont be much better then a back up pg. if he keeps improving sky is the limit.

      1. If this is his ceiling nothing but a back up PG? Uhh look at his highlights again there buddy

        1. agreed. he’ll be a starting SG in this league (and also run point occasionally).. and he’ll be a great one.

          1. Clarkson will be an elite player in the NBA soon. in the next year or two. he will never let people forget hes #46 pick LOL

        2. he can score at a great lvl but nothing else about his game is ready to be a starter yet if he does not get better he is a jamal crawford/louwilliams type of player

  • Hop kobe gonna be sold w/ this kid. This coming season is like the awakening! And its still 2months away..

  • They should trade clarkson ( while his stock is up) and Russell (doesn’t look as good as hyped) for demarcus cousins. Kings know he doesn’t want to play with them long term after their latest blunder of trying to trade him.

      1. when will cousins be a FA? do you think we have an honest good chance to land KD? i know we all want him but is he even considering LA his new home?

        1. not sure. it would be great if he came, but let’s see if he’s fully healthy first. i think we need to go after whiteside big time next summer. he’d be great to place alongside our young ‘big three’.

          1. could randle play as a SF and we pickup whiteside as a PF and keep hibbert at Center? i really would hope we keep hibbert here in LA. his defensive presence is always on the other teams mind. 7’2 290 but i think he lost 15 lbs recently. he is in great shape i think now and will have a stand out type season for us!

          2. so etched in stone as of right now PG is Russell PF is Randle. Clarkson will be a SG? or PG?

            so SF and Center are both question marks.

          3. i see clarkson as a SG. and don’t sleep on anthony brown being our long term SF.

    1. wait until hes a free agent and get him for free or peanuts.
      why trade 2 elite players for 1 aging superstar? nonsense
