The Jabari Parker promo video below will get you Jones-ing for basketball and even more so if you are a Duke Blue Devil fan. One of the quotes that I love in the video is when the Parker voice over says “I can get a lot better”, which is quite a scary proposition to consider if you are in the ACC. Would truly love to see that, and I’m sure the former Simeon Academy forward has gotten plenty of work in this summer. He dominated at Chicago Pro Ams, and there is plenty of video swirling around of that. Shout out to the tweet below for tweeting the promo video.

It is pretty much just dribbling and jumpers, but anything will do this time of year right? There is a rumor floating around that Parker might even play at center for the Blue Devils next season for stretches of play. It would certainly give them quite a bit of floor spacing, but I do worry about Parker’s health if he is constantly banging down low with bigger players.
It does seem like a lot of programs are going small, so Parker will be aided there but against a player like Dakari Johnson do not really like Parker’s chances of staying healthy. Do not be surprised though if Parker comes back next season a better and stronger player.
