Jabari Parker will be a very unique and versatile player for the Devils, he will be used in many ways inside and out. From being a wing, to being a PF to bringing the ball up the court in some sets. He has a very goodÂ jump-shot but can definitely get to the rim and finish at 6’9 and 245 and in keeping with the no-defined-position attitude Jabari will have a chance and a green light to pick his poison and flourish – match-up nightmare. I think this summerÂ spent in the weight room is going to do wonders for Parkers game, added strength and agility will become weapons in an already stacked arsenal.
Jabari Parker comes to Duke with a championship pedigree and an accelerated basketball IQ. He has won multiple state titles, individual awards, the Gatorade National Player of the Year and USA Men’s Basketball Athlete of the Year. Some kids come in with hype but not many with the hype that Jabari does. Unlike most Parker does not let the hype define him, he is grounded and knows that what he will be judged for will be what happens on the court. He will be judged on how good a teammate he is, how unselfish he is and how he submits to the process. The skill is undeniable but what I want to see is a young man that enjoys his time at Duke, whether it be 1 year or several.
