Jordan Clarkson was giving money to Lakers fans that found him at Six Flags

Los Angeles' young guard loves his fans.

Life looks good for Jordan Clarkson. Over the last two years the Los Angeles guard has gone from being the 46th overall pick in the NBA draft, a player whose stock was low enough that the Lakers were able to purchase his rights on draft night for cash, to the All-Rookie first team in 2015 and being universally recognized as a piece of the Lakers' young core alongside three first round picks in Julius Randle, D'Angelo Russell, and Larry Nance, Jr.

Making things look even rosier for Clarkson is his restricted free agency this summer. The second-round selection who made just under $900,000 this season appears primed for a hefty pay raise this summer, with his next contract looking primed to be either "a max of $57.8 million over four years or $34.1 million over three years," according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times.

It would be understandable if that left Clarkson feeling like sharing the wealth, which is exactly what he did during a visit to California's "Six Flags" amusement park on Friday, giving one lucky fan who managed to track him down a five dollar bill for tracking him down after he was done hanging out with some others and riding a roller coaster:

Most of the time it's not considered great etiquette to bother athletes or celebrities in public, but it appears that keeping a look out for Jordan Clarkson could actually pay (Editor's Note: Silver Screen and Roll does not actually endorse asking Jordan Clarkson for money. Don't do that).
