Duke Blue Devils Commit Jabari Parker Says Andrew Wiggins is “A Friend of Mine”
Jabari Parker will be linked to Andrew Wiggins for some time, so it should be fascinating to see how their relationship plays out.

“I think a lot of people perceive that we are enemies. It’s not like that,” Parker said to USABasketball.com. “Of course, I’m going to try to win, but we never let it get off the court. He’s a very good guy. He’s a friend of mine, and I don’t have to hate him just because he is my opponent.”
We’ll just have to see about that. Wiggins has beaten Parker at the last two Nike Hoop Summits, but Parker got the best of Wiggins at the McDonald’s All American Game. So we don’t quite know yet who has the upper hand, but the higher the competition level the higher the stakes.
My "Andrew Wiggins to the Lakers, Jabari Parker to the Celtics" theory is looking good at the moment.

Parker and Wiggins will face off in Chicago at the Champions’ Classic next this year and it will be a must see game. Honestly, whenever these two face each other is must see telivision, because we might be witnessing the next great rivalry in basketball.
