We’re still a few weeks away from seeing Jabari Parker make his NBA debut when he heads to Las Vegas to play on the Milwaukee Bucks summer league team. But that doesn’t mean we can’t see Parker compete against NBA-level talent right now as the former Duke standout decided to part in the Chicago Pro-Am recently/
Gracing the floor during the Nike Chi League, Jabari Parker thrilled the excited crowd at Whitney Young High School with some impressive plays that saw him post a very solid 20 points and 10 rebounds, even though he arrived late.
Yep, Parker couldn’t get to the gym in time but showed up in uniform after tip off and entered the game late with his father’s ‘Team Parker’ trailing by double-digits. That didn’t last long however as Jabari Parker started taking fellow NBA talents like Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors) and Will Bynum (Detroit Pistons) to school.
Parker wasn’t the only talent to play well in the exhibition game as both Green and Bynum put up solid numbers too, but clearly Jabari Parker was the star of the show.
Yes, it was a glorified pick-up game with little defense played (and it looked to be held in a poor man’s version of an MTV Rock-N-Jock arena) but it was still nice to see Parker put his skills to use on a basketball court.
He and his Bucks will open up their Vegas Summer League schedule late next week if you’re looking to see the former Blue Devil make his NBA debut.
