MANILA, Philippines – Fil-Am Los Angeles Laker Jordan Clarkson, who was in Manila for Nike over the weekend, spent his final day here with a cultural and historical lesson at Intramuros on Sunday, May 29.

Afterward, Clarkson, who hopes to be able to play for national team Gilas Pilipinas some day, stopped by Tenement Court in Taguig, the same one Paul George and LeBron James visited when they were in Manila.
