After a long wait, Jordan Clarkson finally took the court for Philippines at FIBA level at the end of last month -- as he suited up for Gilas Pilipinas in their World Cup Asian qualifiers against Lebanon and Saudi Arabia.

In his first appearances for Gilas since initially being granted a one-time exception to feature at the 2018 Asian Games, Clarkson showed just what he had to offer -- especially with a 23-point haul in an 84-46 win over the Saudi Arabians.

The presence -- and availability -- of an NBA-level guard will be pivotal for Philippines' prospects moving forward, most immediately at next year's World Cup -- which they are guaranteed to be at as co-hosts along with Japan and Indonesia.

But just how exactly does the Utah Jazz man himself feel following his recent endeavors on the international stage?
