Los Angeles Lakers point guard Jordan Clarkson can certainly jump—most NBA players have to, to be able to play basketball at the highest level. How high he can jump though was confirmed when the 6-foot-5-inch Clarkson leaped over the head of 5-foot-10-inch Kendall Jenner, who he was apparently hanging out with at the Coachella Music Festival.

Check out the 23-year-old’s leaping ability here:

Here’s his remarkable ups, seen from another angle, while in slow motion.

Clarkson, while looking like he’s having fun here, probably would rather be in the playoffs right now though. The former second-round pick out of Missouri, averaged 15.5 points and 2.4 assists per game in his second season in the league, but the once-proud Lakers finished just 17–65, which was the worst record in the Western Conference and the worst finish in franchise history.

The team is going to have to quickly find players in the draft and free agency (Kevin Durant, maybe) to get back to their usual spot in the postseason.
