[Watch] This Ridiculous Dance by Lakers Jordan Clarkson Needs a Name

Kobe Bryant can't approve of teammates celebrating him like this.

Published March 14, 2016

The Los Angeles Lakers are serious about celebrating Kobe Bryant in this, his 20th and final NBA season.

But perhaps nobody is more serious than Jordan Clarkson.

When the Black Mamba hit a short turnaround jumper in the post Sunday night to give the Lakers a five-point edge over the New York Knicks with 3:16 left in the game, cameras panned over to Clarkson, who was doing the most ridiculous dance you'll ever see.

Don't believe us? See for yourself.

Now, keep it all the way 100 — is that not the most ridiculous dance by an athlete ever? The 23-year-old looked possessed gyrating like that.

The dance is so ridiculous it needs its own name. It's so bad that Clarkson may need to make it his signature and continue to do it for as long as he's in the league. 

What's worse is Clarkson's celebration for Kobe was premature, as the Knicks beat the Lakers on a buzzer-beating three-pointer.

Kobe only has 15 games left in his legendary career... but if Jordan keeps dancing like this, the future Hall of Famer might not make it until April 13.

Good lord, Jordan Clarkson. 

What was that, man?
