The Lakers are said to have offer two of its best players in various trades
Despite being one of the leaders, JC’s name has been making noise in the trade talks.
Jordan Clarkson is a steady source of stats for the Lakers for the past three years but is his time in Los Angeles over?
Will the Lakers pull the trigger?
- Jordan Clarkson
- Julius Randle
- Larry Nance Jr.
- Corey Brewer
- Andrew Bogut
Given his struggles offensively, Lonzo doesn’t deserve to start a game
- 9 points per game- 30% field goal shooting and 23% from the three-point line
- 6.9 assists per game- leads the team
- 2.7 turnovers per game- leads the team
- 15 points per game- 49% field goal shooting and 38% from the three-point line
- 2.9 assists per game
- 1.9 turnovers per game
Randle’s slowly decreasing role means he’s not included in the long-term plans of LA
So where’s Julius Randle in all of this?
What will happen to Randle?

After a huge surge of support of the Filipinos around the world, it has now finally paid off.
NBA has released the latest roster of the 2017 NBA All Star roster via their website.
This Roster includes the 10 starters, 5 for each division. And what seems impossible before just turned out to be possible as Jordan Clarkson gets 6th Spot in the NBA All Star guard position of West.
This is just 50% of the voting category as 50% will be coming from NBA players and media votes but this development has given a huge chance for Jordan Clarkson to get his first ever All Star appearance but it will depend on the Western All-Stars management as they select their reserves next week. It was an awesome last push for Filipinos to get JC his forst ever All Star appearance but his chances in becoming a starter for the western division has come to an end.

After seeing the NBA All Star voting running results last week, the Filipino fans bursts their opinions online after a surprising appearance of Zaza Pachulia in the top 5, saying that because of the Georgians’ support power, this guy has made it in the top ten so why Can’t the Filipino NBA Pride can’t?
The social media exploded with thousands of posts for Jordan Clarkson to be included in the 2017 NBA All-Star and this is not just personal accounts who shared their thoughts, it was different groups and sports pages that got united for the same cause, to put Jordan Clarkson on the All Star Stage.
It will be a hard fight to be fought by the Filipino fans to get him on that roster but in a Country like the Philippines who’s most of the population loves basketball and the biggest social media user, impossible is just a word. With four days more before the voting ends, basketball fans are expected to make their final push to have a Fil-Am from Lakers to represent the Country.
Jordan Clarkson said on his twitter account that he’ll be happy to represent the Philippines this upcoming All-Star if given a chance with the huge support of the whole Filipino Basketball Community.
Just after a beat down from the other Los Angeles team, The Wolves headed by Andrew Wiggins were on a mission to win and get closer to the .500 record. They improved to 3-6 and the Lakers fall to 6-5.
Wiggins is proving to be an all star type of player who shot 14-21 .667% with 4 rebs, 3 assists and a block. Bjelica also had a career high scoring 24 points and 8 rebs, Karl Towns had a decent game as well 22 points, 12 rebounds and 1 block. LA was headed by Lou Williams with 17, Clarkson and Randle added 14 however DLo struggled and only had 7 pts who shot 3-10 from the field.

Yahoo confirmed yesterday about the hack of 500 million accounts. And just this very moment, a hacker calling himself Mr. Chikri and is using the hashtag Cyber Wolfgang managed to get into Jordan Clarkson’s Twitter account. He tweeted that Kobe Bryant is a p***y….
The hacker wasn’t done though, he continued to send out tweets:
“i’m better than D’Angelo Russell”
“it’s official guys, i’m joining the warriors”
“without me lakers would lose every game”
“oh well boys, dating a kardashian isn’t as good as you think.”
Let us see if Jordan Clarkson will look into the specifics of how and why his twitter was hacked.
The hacking and hating never stops. SMH.
The under-construction UCLA Health Training Center will be the new home of the Lakers and Development League’s D-Fenders. It is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017. The Lakers will own their new building rather than lease space, as they do now from the NHL’s LA Kings.
Lakers COO Tim Harris said that it is not a sponsorship. It is a true partnership with UCLA. Not only the team will have their new practice facility, UCLA Health will also serve as the exclusive in-game health provider.
“The new building is three times the size of the one we’re in now. It’s got state-of-the-art everything,” coach Luke Walton said.
Miss Jeanie Buss, and the mayor of El Segundo was also at the event.

A tour of the Walled City, a workout with young ballers and a classic basketball rivalry highlight Clarkson’s last day in Manila
“Nike athlete Jordan Clarkson kicked off his second day in visit to Manila with a cultural and historical lesson at Intramuros. He then stopped by Tenement Court in Taguig, and brought Nike We Rise training to Kerry Sports at the Fort. There he took part in their training drills, played a few mini-games and even indulged in a session of “running man” with the We Rise players. He ended his visit to Manila by spectating the Ateneo – La Salle basketball match at San Juan Arena.”
In a media event on Saturday, Nike brought Jordan Clarkson back in Manila as Nike unveiled the new 2016 Gilas Pilipinas national team kits. Clarkson was the special guest of Nike for the unveiling of the uniforms who expressed his confidence in Gilas Pilipinas in qualifying for Rio Olympics. Jordan Clarkson then joined the closed-door session held in Kerry Sports, Shangri-la the Fort.

In a press conference by Nike before the close-door practice, Clarkson still strongly expresses his eagerness in representing the country on the court despite not being included to the 24-man pool submitted to FIBA. However, Clarkson is confident and believes that the team can get the job done and get a ticket to Rio.

Meanwhile, Andray Blatche looks better and a lighter during their Saturday practice unlike when he showed up out of shape before the FIBA Asia Championship last year. Despite looking overweight, he remained as an important piece in the silver medal finish last year. Andray still joined the practice Saturday afternoon despite arriving in the morning which shows his determination in bringing the Gilas in Rio Olympics.

By now, the news has already sunk in. Jordan Clarkson WILL NOT be suiting up for Gilas Pilipinas come the Manila Olympic Qualifiers.
