Asian Bros! Jeremy Lin pays respect to Jordan Clarkson on Twitter


Jordan Clarkson and Jeremy Lin are feeling the Asian-American connection through their exchange of pleasantries on Twitter.

The Taiwanese-American Lin first gave a shoutout to Clarkson by reposting a tweet by New York Times writer Scott Cacciola, regarding an article that highlights JC and its Filipino fans now rooting for the Utah Jazz.

The former NBA guard, who now plays for Santa Cruz Warriors in NBA G-League, commended the Filipino-American for his amazing plays this season, which cemented him as this year’s frontrunner for the Sixth Man of the Year award.

“Been amazing to see what JC has been doing this season and Filipino fans are some of the best in the world #6thManOfTheYear,” Lin said on his retweet.

The Utah Jazz guard replied to Lin’s tweet saying: “My brother, respect!”

Clarkson and Lin go way back in 2014-15, forming an Asian-American backcourt duo in Los Angeles Lakers. They also had the privilege to team up with the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant.
