Manny Pacquiao and Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson playing chess together in the Philippines

Jordan Clarkson's summer seems to be going alright.

Jordan Clarkson started making a name for himself with his impressive play for the Los Angeles Lakers during his rookie season, and he's now making moves to represent the Philippines in national play. A certain Manny Pacquiao may have taken notice of his fellow Filipino athlete, and naturally the two took to a game of chess to get together:

Lining up with Kobe Bryant on the Lakers and playing chess, not checkers, with Pacquiao. It's been an amazing journey for Jordan, to say the least.
