Jordan Clarkson is hopeful the Lakers can make a playoff push

Jordan Clarkson has high hopes for next season.

Los Angeles Lakers second-year guard Jordan Clarkson joined SiriusXM NBA Radio and talked a bit about his expectations for next season with the team, playing with Kobe Bryant, and staying on head coach Byron Scott's good side. He's also "hopeful" the Lakers can make a playoff push. Here's a handful of quotes from Clarkson their social media team shared:

Jordan certainly bubbles with the same kind of optimism going forward that Julius Randle's mentioned. An actual playoff push seems like an absolute best case season playing out for the Lakers, with their mix of established players and young talent finding a groove together in a hurry.

But hey, who knows. Clarkson taking a step forward, D'Angelo Russell catching on quick, Randle making up for lost time and Kobe Bryant showing he can still dance could be enough to have the Lakers in the conversation. We'll see once what should be a very interesting season begins in October.
