Duke Blue Devils Fortunate to Have Forward Jabari Parker On Team Next Year

Jabari Parker wanted to play for John Wooden. That is the man whose quote is on Parker’s twitter page. Unfortunately for Parker Coach Wooden has been dead for many years. So Parker chose the next best thing on the winning scale.

He decided to go with the Duke Blue Devils, which broke my North Carolina heart. At the same time, out of the schools he had left it was probably the best call. I honestly thought he was going with the Michigan State Spartans, but they already had a player at his position so Parker backed off.

It will be truly revealing to see what Parker is capable of next year, and something tells me it is going to be something special to behold. Old school fans of college basketball get ready for a resurgence next year, because it is going to be a wild ride. If you have any comments, feel free to Rant them below or hit me up on twitter.
