Yo when I saw exum fall to the jazz that really made me angry about those two last wins. This could've been a much happier day. Right now I have the feeling of "meh".

Yeah, Clarkson is that kind of player. The Lakers obviously knew what kind of pg they wanted and they got it.  The guy has potential though so we'll see what he does with it. I honestly have seen very little of him, he always struck me as a good player.  Nothing that made me go OMAGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! But solid

He is very good at attacking the basket and extremely fluid on transition.

You should, considering the Lakers seem to believe he's worth $2 million.

Was projected late 1st round in most mocks.  Real solid talent.  Jump shot is his issue but great ball handling...a steal at 46

yup. Draft Express underrated his ball handling. you can see it here too ; his handle actually gets him places. unlike a Morris.

and he's a good athlete and uses it in games - also unlike Morris.

i hope this guy doesnt get the Morris label!

Way better size and athleticism  than Morris already.

Either I'm blind or he worked the hitch out of his shot to some extent, and it looks like he's doing the perfect practice for him in that video.

Stop floating sideways on his shot and better balance.  Handles are good, not great.  Hurky jerky, which can be good.  Footwork isn't as controlled as it needs to be but he's got great athleticism to make up for it.  He's still got too much loosey goosey in his drive.  Not playing the angles as well as he needs to.

 

I can see why he dropped but I don't think it matters.  Most (if not all) of that can be corrected with the right player development coach and gym time.

I guess we would have to wait to see him play in order to know if he really is a steal like a lot of people think.

Honestly don't care. Randle was a good pick, this pick could be the next monta Ellis or just out of the league in 2 years

Not excited or unexcited. Just don't care
