Jordan Clarkson: ‘Kobe Said To ‘Never Have Your Hands Down’ (Video)
Last night in Staples Center, Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson and Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic got into a shoving match before Clarkson pushed him to the ground and all hell almost broke loose.
Both players were ejected, and the Lakers eventually won in a 127-100 blowout.
After the game, Clarkson said when the situation went down, he remembered something Kobe always taught him.
“It was one of those things where he was running at me,” Clarkson said. “I didn’t know what he was going to do. So I put my hands up to defend myself. I went back to stuff Kobe (Bryant) told me about an incident he had. He said to never have your hands down in case something happens.”
