The Milwaukee Bucks are wildly entertaining at times, largely on the strength of Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo. On Thursday evening, Antetokounmpo began the party with a highlight-reel blocked shot (in partnership with Tony Snell) and, just a few minutes later, Parker turned in a phenomenal offensive explosion by finishing a one-handed dunk.
Parker, who is still just 21 years old, has displayed signs of a breakout in the early going of the 2016-2017 season, averaging 17.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per game to this early point in the calendar. In this instance, Parker was provided with a flawless pass from point guard Matthew Dellavedova and, well, the former Duke superstar did the rest by ascending toward the rim and finishing with picture-perfect form and elevation.
In the grand scheme, the Bucks are probably a year or two away from actually competing as an upper-echelon team in the Eastern Conference, but the talent base is there for a long and fruitful run behind Parker and Antetokounmpo. As you can see above, Parker has the athleticism and with the skills that he displays on a regular basis in service to the more highly-touted Antetokounmpo, the sky is the limit for this forward tandem in the future.
