LOOK: Jordan Clarkson shows some love for ejected Ingram

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino-American NBA player Jordan Clarkson was on roll on Twitter when the basketbrawl between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets  broke out at the Staples Center on Saturday, October 20 (Sunday, October 21, Manila time). 

After Brandon Ingram was ejected together with Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul, Clarkson just had to tweet out his support for his former teammate.

In a deleted tweet, Clarkson – who spent some time with Ingram in the young Lakers squad – warned others that they shouldn't mess around with the 6-foot-9 forwad despite his silent disposition. 

In the footage, Ingram initiated the fight after shoving James Harden. Lance Stephenson then came to help pacify the altercation by calming Ingram down.

However, as Ingram was walking away,  Rondo and Paul had their own melee which caused him to rush back from halfcourt to land a punch on CP3. 

Just look at that wingspan.

With all the buzz surrounding both teams after the brawl, maybe basketball can be the world's best sport now, at least for Clarkson.
