Jordan Clarkson, 23, is one lucky man to be dating model Kendall Jenner, 20. And after being spotted out on the town with the NBA player, it looks like Kendall is finally over Harry Styles, 22, for good! The new couple were even seen flirting at the West Hollywood hotspot The Nice Guy, which is totally THE place for celebrities to be seen. Seems like Kendall and Jordan are definitely ready to make their love public. Find out more about Kendall’s hunky catch below!
1. Jordan is a professional basketball player.
Ok, this one’s kind of obvious, but Jordan plays b-ball for the Los Angeles Lakers. He ended up foregoing his senior year in college to enter the 2014 NBA Draft. Originally selected by the Washington Wizards in the second round with the 46th overall pick, Jordan was immediately traded to the Lakers. In his first year, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Impressive, right?
2. He’s Filipino-American.
Jordan’s father, Mike Clarkson, is African-American, while his mother, Annette Davis, is half Filipino. The athlete even tried to score a spot on the Philippines men’s national basketball team since he has carried a Philippine passport since he was 12. However, Jordan did not make the final cut due to scheduling conflicts with the Lakers.
3. He’s a point guard/shooting guard.
As a Lakers’ point guard, Jordan is required to be one of the team’s best ball handlers. He often leads his team in assists and steals and is very quick on his feet. But because Jordan is ALSO a shooting guard at times, he needs to be very skilled at scoring baskets. Basically, Jordan is an overall dynamic player. Looks like Kendall really SCORED with this one!
4. He’s got both Nick Young’s and D’Angelo Russell’s back after cheating tape scandal.
Amidst his teammate Nick Young‘s public confession of cheating on his fiance, Iggy Azalea, Jordan has admitted that he’s still got Nick’s back AND D’Angelo Russell‘s — the teammate who leaked the taped admittance in the first place. “That’s still my teammate and backcourt mate. I’m going to be there for him, too,” Jordan said of D’Angelo to the Daily News. Such a good friend! Get to know more about Jordan’s dating history by clicking here.
5. He’s got a unique sense of style.
Jordan’s Instagram page is FULL of snaps of the basketball star looking super stylish. From bomber jackets to blazers, to holey jeans and Louis Vuitton murses (aka man purses), Jordan seems to have a special look for every occasion! Good thing he’s dating a model — Kendall definitely knows how to appreciate good taste!
