ESPN’s Brian Windhorst took brutal shot at Jordan Clarkson after Game 2
Jordan Clarkson has had a rough NBA Finals so far to say the least, and now he is taking body shots from the media as well.
In an appearance Monday on ESPN’s “The Hoop Collective,” veteran reporter Brian Windhorst took a savage swipe at the Cleveland Cavaliers guard for his performance in the first two games against the Golden State Warriors.
“What would be more valuable to the Cavs? Jordan Clarkson or Kyrie Irving, on crutches, on the court, getting treated for a bacterial infection, with the IV bag coming down with him?” asked Windhorst.
Clarkson has managed only six total points and one total assist in the series so far, shooting just 3-for-13 from the field. Coupled with his below-average defense, it is clear he is hurting the Cavs on both ends of the floor right now.
Granted, perhaps Clarkson deserves some slack after being acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers at the February trade deadline and being asked to make the transition from a free-reign sixth man on a bottom-feeding team to a valuable (at least in theory) role player for a title-contending juggernaut.
Regardless though, the 25-year-old is taking heat from everywhere right now, and even Windhorst can’t resist getting his digs in.
