Kobe Bryant Gives High Praise to Earl Clark
Where would the Lakers be without their throw-in small forward from the Howard trade turned starting power forward turned sometimes center Earl Clark?
“We’d be in deep crap,” said Kobe Bryant on Tuesday after Clark had another stellar night in the Lakers’ 92-83 win over the Brooklyn Nets.
“He’s earned a lot of trust and he can guard everybody,” said Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni. “He can guard from the point guard to the center. It’s invaluable to have somebody like that.”
