Jabari is a freak. Great size and world class skill.
But I still don't think he has the athleticism to be a superstar in the NBA..
Spoken like a true Wiggins fan. Parker is the real deal. And definitely athletic enough to be a star in the NBA. For his size, his handles are unbelievable. Can handle the ball like a guard.
And his first step/hesitation move is enough to get him open and past his defender. Watch the video. Dude has no trouble getting open and getting his shot off.
And if there is one thing about Chicago HS basketball competition - may not always be the tallest players, but they are all tough and fast. Fast!!! And Jabari has no trouble beating those guys with his feet. He runs like a deer and is plenty quick for his size.
Wiggins is good but don't knock Parker - a big man with handles, quicks and can stroke it from deep is pretty rare. Think Carmelo with better handles and without the negativity.
