Hey, remember Jabari Parker? The Milwaukee Bucks forward and No. 2 overall selection in the 2014 NBA Draft hasn’t been heard from in a while. Probably because his rookie season was cut short by an ACL injury, and his sophomore season was overshadowed by a mismatching Bucks roster that disappointed on the way to a 33-49 record.
Parker can definitely still get into the air with style, though. Watch above as he embarrasses the same fool twice at a recent Chi League game — a Nike-sponsored ProAm that happens in Parker’s hometown of Chicago, just south of his new one in Milwaukee.
Parker is the best player at Chi League, and it really isn’t close. The 21-year-old played pretty solid in 2015-16, too, shooting 49 percent from the field despite a Bucks offense that was cramped without perimeter shooting. He also laced ’em up for 76 games to prove that his injury wasn’t going to slow him down.
The Bucks continued to add ridiculous amounts of length and athleticism around Parker by drafting intriguing Sudanese prospect Thon Maker in June, but they also made some debatable moves when they signed Matthew Dellavedova and Miles Plumlee to long-term contracts. Here’s to hoping Milwaukee can get over the hump in 2016-17, and bring more Parker dunks like these into the NBA limelight.
