Jordan Clarkson has won the Sixth Man Of The Year award this season, which was well deserved. Clarkson was the second-leading scorer on the Utah Jazz this season and provided the Jazz with some amazing bench-scoring performances this year. If there's one thing that fans know about Jordan Clarkson, it's that he won't stop shooting.

The Utah Jazz will need Clarkson's offensive spark in the playoffs, as they will be facing a formidable opponent in the Los Angeles Clippers. There is no doubt that Paul George and Kawhi Leonard will provide a good test for the Jazz's defense, and that the Jazz will need to be at their best to face them. Luckily, it looks as though Jordan Clarkson knows who he needs to channel in order to win.

Kobe Bryant provided a huge inspiration to many players, and it seems like Jordan Clarkson is one of them. Clarkson was notably teammates with Kobe Bryant during the start of his career in Los Angeles, and he got to witness greatness next to him. Despite the Utah Jazz being the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference this season, many have counted them out prematurely. However, if everything goes right, then Jordan Clarkson and the Jazz may have the last word.
