The stars continue to come out to Wild Card Gym to take a peek at Sen. Manny Pacquiao as he prepares for his upcoming bout with Errol Spence Jr. On Saturday (Sunday, Manila time), Pacquiao had a star-studded group of Fil-Am guests headlined by Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson. Clarkson was joined by music artists Apl.de.Ap and J. Rey Soul — both of whom have Filipino lineage — of the Black Eyed Peas.
Mitchell has been especially prolific against the Clippers, averaging 41.0 points on 52.5% shooting from the floor, while the Jazz opened the series with two home wins despite the absence of fellow All-Star guard Mike Conley Jr. (hamstring). “He’s just stepping up in a big way,” said Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson, the Sixth Man of the Year who had 24 points on 9-of-15 shooting in Game 2. “He’s been a real superstar, MVP-caliber player, All-NBA type of guy. That’s his job, and that’s what he does.”
Jordan Clarkson saw the hateful racial slur spray-painted all over a well-known Filipino food truck in Utah on social media and was overcome with raw emotion. “F— C—-s” and an offensive image of a face with slanted eyes was sprayed on the side of the World Famous Yum Yum Food Truck last weekend, and it didn’t take long for the images to reach Clarkson’s phone.
“If you want me to be real honest, my first reaction was, ‘This is bulls—!'” Clarkson told ESPN on Thursday. “I was just like, we can’t be f—ing doing this. Those were the exact words that came out of my mouth to my boys, my family and everybody that was around me. So they were like, let’s do something [about it].” “There’s just no room for that,” Clarkson added, “especially right now. It’s been tough, tough years on this Earth, this country, this world. There’s a lot of stuff going on. I feel like us together, and everybody finding a peace, will make things a lot more comforting in this world. We ain’t got no room for the hate no more. That’s got to go out of the window real quick.”
The 29-year-old Clarkson was one of many, including local politicians and businesses, who wanted to help restore the food truck. Clarkson paid for interior cleaning and detailing and joined with vehicle wrap company Identity Graphx, which designed a new exterior for the truck that will be unveiled Saturday at the Philippine Independence Day celebration in Salt Lake City. Clarkson also offered the owners, Ben and Erin Pierce, with significant financial support to get the truck up and running again. Clarkson said the Jazz invited the truck’s owners and employees to Game 2 against the LA Clippers on Thursday (10 p.m. ET, ESPN).
