Jordan Clarkson Named Bleacher Report’s Best Dressed
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Just when you thought the end-of-season awards were done for the Utah Jazz, another one sneaks in before the finish line. Though it’s not an officially recognized award by the league, guard Jordan Clarkson was named “Best Dressed” by the Bleacher Report Kicks on Wednesday.
It’s not the first award Clarkson won for his work during the season. The guard was also named Sixth Man of the Year last month, marking the first time a Jazz player has won the award.
One of the league’s more dynamic personalities, Clarkson never misses his opportunity to show off unique outfits before and after Jazz games.

In addition to earning the nod for Bleacher Report, Clarkson makes frequent appearances on the Slam Magazine’s League Fits Instagram page which tracks what players around the NBA wear before their games.
On January 5, before a road loss to the Brooklyn Nets, Clarkson had one of his most memorable outfits, wearing a kilt to Barclays Center.
The high-scoring sixth man accompanied the kilt with a large black winter coat and yellow Nike sneakers.
Teammate Rudy Gobert, one of the Jazz more fashion-forward players put on a poll on Instagram asking his followers how they felt about Clarkson’s decision to wear the kilt.
The guard liked the traditional Gaelic outfit so much he brought it back later in the season.
Somewhat understated during his time in college at Missouri, Clarkson found his fashion footing after being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers on draft night where he became familiar with the bright lights of Hollywood.
Now, Clarkson has brought his manicured style to Salt Lake City where he’s become one of the most well-liked players on the Jazz both on and off the court.
