A group of Filipino Lakers fans is campaigning for the Los Angeles Laker’s young guard Jordan Clarkson.
Through their social media accounts, the Facebook group Lakers Nation Philippines is calling for more Filipinos to vote for Clarkson. It’s the same as when the nation of Georgia rallied around Golden State big man Zaza Pachulia.
NBA revealed the first fan returns in the first week of January. Even though Clarkson was not among the leading vote-getters he took notice of Lakers Nation Philippines’ efforts.
Clarkson, who has a Filipino mother, is currently averaging 13.8 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game for the Lakers, who have a 15-26 record.
He had this to say about the support.
“Spotted this on a Facebook fan page today,”
“Thanks for the support!”
“I’d be proud to rep all of you at the All-Star Game.”
