Carlos Boozer: Jordan Clarkson is a "baby Westbrook"

Carlos Boozer is taking his role as a veteran mentor seriously, and spent much of his exit interview complimenting the Lakers' young pieces.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Before holding court on the unselfishness of his "HOLDATS", Carlos Boozer had nothing but praise for the Lakers' young talent, calling Jordan Clarkson"star in the making" and a "baby [Russell] Westbrook".

Boozer also went on to say that Clarkson, Julius Randle, Tarik Black, and Jabari Brown all have "a great future" ahead of them.

Quotes like these could almost make one want to start a #StayBooz campaign. And we will find out if Clarkson is really the next Westbrook if and when he is asked what being a First Team All Rookie selection means and responds "s**t".
