Jabari Parker Will Have to Play Large Role For Duke Blue Devils To Be Successful

What would success be for the Duke Blue Devils next year? Don’t know what everyone else’s expectations are, but Jabari Parker (who is coming off of his fourth consecutive state championship) will have his eyes set right upon a national title.

The Duke coaching staff has said that they will use Parker much like the London Olympic squad used LeBron James, which is quite wise on their part. Parker will have to occupy the ball for much of the time for the Blue Devils to be successful, which won’t be a problem. His teammates will realize quite quickly Parker’s skill level as well as his willingness to pass the ball when they get themselves into a dangerous position on the floor.

I’ve predicted here in the past that Parker will be the ACC player of the year next season, but we’ll just have to see if that comes to fruition.
