Jabari Parker is less than a month away from tipping off the college basketball season with a matchup against Andrew Wiggins. That will occur on November 12th, and for you college basketball junkies out there, this is one that you do not want to miss. It will be the subject of water-cooler talk all the way from Chicago to Kansas to North Carolina and everywhere else in between.

Before that matchup though Parker was lucky enough to sign the World Trade Center structure (unfortunately right on top of Mason Plumlee’s name). His connections to New York continue to increase after the Nets held their practices at the Duke Facilities for a portion of the summer.
We will have to see what kind of year Parker has, but he is kind of flying under the radar after Wiggins’ SI cover dropped last week.
Written here before that Parker will be ACC freshman of the year, and standing by that prediction. Will have to see some more game action to predict how far the Blue Devils can get, but that will come in time.
Still do not have wifi at new place, so I’m off to the goddammn starbucks again to let a little bit more of my soul die. But I do it for you reader! Every goddamn day.
