Interview: Jordan Clarkson On NBA All-Rookie First Team Honors

On Monday morning, Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson was named All-Rookie First Team, the first Laker since Eddie Jones (1994-95 season), 20 years ago. Not even Kobe Bryant received that accolade after his rookie year, though he did receive All-Rookie Second Team honors.

Clarkson caught up with Lakers Nation to chat about his recent honor and what it means to be the only player selected in the second round of the draft to receive first-team honors, since the 2010-11 season.
