VIDEO: Jordan Clarkson has used the Lakers’ offseason to master fidget spinners

JC is in on the hottest summer craze.

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Los Angeles Lakers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

To be perfectly clear, I do not understand fidget spinners. I know they’re really popular right now, but I guess as a nearly 26-year-old blogger I’m basically washed at this point.

You know who does understand fidget spinners? Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson. In fact, Clarkson has become a master of the summer’s hottest craze. They say players should use the offseason to improve, and Clarkson has certainly done that, showcasing the ability to keep them spinning on his knee, foot and head (either that or he had a propeller installed on his scalp to save money on propeller hats, which would seem... shortsighted).

Anyway, Clarkson posted video of his mastery on Instagram. Check it out:

This is kind of unfair. Not only will most of us never be as good at basketball as Clarkson is, but apparently we’ll never be as good at fidget spinners either. I guess some people are just naturally talented.
