SALT LAKE CITY – One dedicated Utah Jazz fan got the opportunity of a lifetime to pose with Sixth Man of the Year award winner Jordan Clarkson — while dressed up like Jordan Clarkson.

The young fan showed up to the Jazz game against the Memphis Grizzlies in a full Clarkson mountain uniform and even had temporary tattoos and his hair in twists to mimic the guard.

Clarkson’s one of the most recognizable players in the NBA due to his standout fashion sense and ever-growing collection of tattoos.

During shootaround before the game, Clarkson lept up from watching game film with the Jazz coaching staff to pose for photographs with the fan.

After taking pictures, Clarkson signed an assortment of memorabilia before returning to the court.

The interaction made the round son social media as the NBA, the Jazz, and several national outlets shared videos of the special moment.

Late in the game, the young fan was shown on the team’s jumbotron still decked out in Clarkson’s gear.

The Jazz guard made the night extra special for the young fan, however. In addition to posing for photos and signing autographs, Clarkson asked the fan and his father to move into better seats at Vivint Arena reserved for the players’ friends and family members.

Clarkson even retweeted several social media posts of himself and the young fan posing for photos.

This isn’t the first time a Jazz fan has dressed like Clarkson to celebrate the guard’s impact on the franchise. At Halloween, and family dressed their toddler up like Clarkson including a full City Edition, headband, and sleeve tattoos.

Clarkson is averaging 14.9 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.1 assists for the Jazz this season.
