This season was a total disaster, except for Jordan Clarkson. Clarkson was the only reason most Laker fans still watched the games with any enthusiasm. Even when Clarkson was having a bad game, us Laker fans were still happy with the thought that we might have found a solid point guard for the future. As the 46th pick in the draft, he exceeded all expectations by showing off his elite athleticism and improving his once struggling jumper.

It took a while for Clarkson to start seeing consistent minutes, but once he did, he took off.  The injuries of Steve Nash, then Ronnie Price, opened the door for Clarkson to truly show us what he is capable of.  Clarkson finished the season averaging 11.9 points, 3.5 assists, and 3.2 rebounds.

He was selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team, the first Laker to be selected in franchise history.

Let’s take a look back at some of the best moments of Clarkson’s season.
