Jabari Parker at Hoopfest tournament.
Thanks for the post, I like what I see.
Is he at his normal playing weight or is he still trying to get into shape? I haven't seen Parker play before and he just seems heavier than I expected.
Still overweight in my opinion, Coach K will have him in the weight room to tone. Kid is really skilled man, i see so much Pierce and Melo in his game, cant wait to see him in NCAA.
You should see his older pictures. He used to be a fat kid.
I don't think he'll ever be body beautiful (no homo), but I think people underestimate his athletic ability because of the comparison with Wiggins.
He was basically immobile for 5+ months, so for a player with his body type it's easier to put on weight.
He's not there yet, but physically, this is the best I've seen him look in a while... maybe since the summer before his junior season, where he looked the best physically.
Jabari Parker is such a better basketball player at this stage than Andrew Wiggins it's not even close in my opinion.
While there is absolutely no question that Wiggins is an ELITE athlete and will always have a huge advantage there, Jabari
Is just so much more skilled and has an understanding and feel for the game that 90% of NBA players don't even have. I am not saying that he is a better player than 90% of the NBA but I am saying that when u watch him he has a basketball IQ at such a young age of how to make the game as easy as possible with efficiency and less wasted energy. I understand why people love wiggins and his potential but there skillsets aren't even comparable at this stage, Jabari is sooooo far ahead.
We will get to see Jabari Parker on TV on Monday at 2pm EST on ESPNU when Simeon takes on Oak Hill as part of the Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, MA. It will be interesting to see Parker matchup with super athletic Troy Williams and try to rebound from the last couple of showings he had on TV,
My boy Sindarius Thornwell gonna go off in that game, dude is a legend in my town
When I first read this, I thought it said, "Jabari Parker is BLACK".
I was like, I know he's mormon, but I don't think that's necessary...
He was hooping today
