Cavs’ J.R. Smith on Jordan Clarkson’s fashion sense, ‘He’s swaggy all day’
With the Cleveland Cavaliers not too concerned with winning this season, Cavs players have had the time to critique each other’s fashion sense. According to veteran swingman J.R. Smith, combo guard Jordan Clarkson stands out as one of the swaggiest players on the entire team.
“He’s at the top. He’s swaggy all day,” Smith said, via Joe Vardon of The Athletic. “I’ll tell you, he comes to practice with Louis Vuitton flip-flops on, all types of stuff. He’s got more Supreme gear than I do.”
That’s very high praise coming from Smith. And considering the fact that Smith’s endorsement deal with Supreme probably entails a ton of freebies, his statement claiming that Clarkson even has more Supreme gear than he does only means that the young guard probably has every single piece of Supreme merch available on the market.
The good news for Clarkson is that his swag has also become prominent in his game. The 6-foot-5 guard has been a bright spot for the Cavs this season averaging 15.2 points on a career-best 46.3 percent shooting, 1.3 3-pointers, 3.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals, and just 1.3 turnovers in 23.8 minutes off the Cavs bench.
He has been relatively consistent thus far, and while it is still way too early in the season, Clarkson actually has an outside shot for at least being in the conversation for Sixth Man of the Year honors. Those may be high hopes for the Filipino-American, but with how ugly it has been for his team so far, a bit of wishful thinking could be warranted. c
