Jordan Clarkson shares throwback Thursday photo with Tim Duncan

Thursday December 10th, 2015

The Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs square off Friday night, and Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson has been looking forward to the matchup for almost his whole life.

Clarkson shared a photo of him with David Robinson and Tim Duncan on Thursday, taken when Clarkson was a young child. After extensive Google searches, my best guess is Clarkson is the kid in the lower left of the photo.

Also, I have no clue what the context of this photo is. Maybe Duncan and Robinson were trying to be like Joey and Chandler in that one episode of Friends when they pretend to have a baby, except they went with two children instead. Or maybe, Clarkson’s parents asked for the photo after bumping into Robinson and Duncan. Both scenarios are equally likely.
