Why would DWade want to be like Jordan Clarkson?
Well, few people had a better year than Clarkson. The ex-Laker filled up the stat sheet, flexed his fashion flair in GQ Magazine, he’s playing for a title contender, and learned this week that he was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
He was on his Vinnie Johnson-Microwave mode all season.

Check Clarkson out in the Utah Jazz’ next NBA Playoff game on Wednesday.
