May Ere Na? Find out the difference between Jordan Clarkson and Kai Sotto
The tale of two tapes.
Homer Sayson of Spin.ph made a blunt comparison between Jordan Clarkson and Kai Sotto in terms of handling the media as NBA prospects.
“When I met @JordanClarksons at the 2014 draft combine, he was alone. Just him and a duffel bag,” Sayson tweeted.
“When I interviewed @kzsottolive last year he came with an entourage and a handler.”

Focus on the game and the stardom will follow. Doesn’t work the other way around.

The 7-foot-3 has been hyped by Filipino fans, as he began his journey as the first full-blooded, homegrown Filipino to enter the NBA.
However, Sotto’s future and status in NBA G-League Ignite remains uncertain after he left the team to join Gilas Pilipinas in the supposed third window of the FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers.
On the other hand, the Filipino-American guard was an unknown prospect drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft.
Clarkson would go on to have successful career in NBA, and is currently having a breakout season with the Utah Jazz as a frontrunner for the Sixth Man of the Year award.
