Cleveland Cavaliers guard and countryman Jordan Clarkson took to Twitter on Sunday (Manila time) to give Manny Pacquiao a simple salute for his victory over Keith Thurman.
Clarkson, a huge Pacquiao fan, once sat down with Pacquiao and played chess with him years back.
Another NBA player, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trailblazers, must have rejoiced, too, following Pacquiao's victory.
Kawhi Leonard, the NBA champion for the Toronto Raptors but who now plays for the Los Angeles Clippers, was at the fight.
