Jabari Parker has been straight balling at Nike Pro Ams this summer and I enjoyed the tweet below very much; he is playing in Chicago for the rest of the summer.

Parker is going to have a monster season with the Duke Blue Devils and I have predicted here that he will win ACC player of the year. Only time will tell if I am a prophet or a fool though. The Duke coaching staff has said that they will use Parker much like LeBron James was used on the 2012 US Olympic gold medal team
Andrew Wiggings or Jabari Parker gone be in a @bobcats jersey next year.. if we're lucky!

Parker was last year’s Gatorade high school boys basketball player of the year and it should be terribly interesting to see how the next year of college basketball plays out. I had the chance to interview Parker last summer and I was struck by his humility and his intelligence. Those are two skills that will serve him well at the next level and one day we will all be watching Parker in the big leagues.
