2014 NBA Draft: Jabari Parker loves Carmelo Anthony comparisons; takes shot at Knicks


During a recent appearance on the Dan Patrick Show, Duke freshman sensation Jabari Parker discussed a number of topics. From the NCAA’s one-and-done rule, which Parker believes is ridiculous, to comparisons he is receiving leading up to the draft.

One of the players that Parker is most commonly compared to is New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, which is a comparison that Anthony loves.

Patrick commented on the comparison by saying, “but you pass,” to which Parker responded with a quip at the Knicks saying, “but I have a team.”

That won’t sit well with Knicks fans, but it is still a hilarious comment by the youngster.
