Jordan Clarkson discusses the factors behind his form for the Jazz, as a contender for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year award. (5:02)

On Friday, the Utah Jazz and Vivint Arena announced that all home games will require proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of an event to gain access to the arena.

So naturally, local reporters were out on the streets to hear how the community felt about the recent announcement.

A member of the Jazz organization, who also happens to be coming off a career-best year, was in the area and willing to comment.

What KUTV reporter Hayley Crombleholme didn't realize as she was conducting one interview was that she was talking to Jordan Clarkson in the Salt Lake City-area.

At one point, the KUTV reporter asked, "Did you go to any Jazz games [last year]?"

Clarkson responded with a hilariously honest answer.

"Yeah, a lot," he said.

Joe Ingles also enjoyed Clarkson's simple, yet effective, interview.

They were both good sports about the situation and later acknowledged it on Twitter. Although Crombleholme said she'd interview Clarkson again, she also admitted that the sports department probably won't ask for her help.
