write4u was onto something.

And I don't think it's been mentioned here, but apparently MSU was his first choice except that they have a junior who plays the same position as JB. And Parker didn't want to disrespect him by making him have to fight for playing time. Or something like that.

Remember when we used to crucify InsideJazzMan? And here PKM has more rep than me and all of my alts combined.
I wanted to start a new "moran" catch phrase. Plus, I hate the name Brian.
"Branden Dawson, me and him play the same position, and it'd kind of be a controversy if me and him were on the same floor running into each other," Parker said Thursday at a press conference following his televised announcement at his high school gym. "So I just wanted to go to a school that was fitting.
"I don't want to mess up his thing. Me coming in there would be kind of disrespectful. I just want him to do well."
The 6-foot-6 Dawson, listed as a guard, has played both forward positions since arriving at Michigan State and most recently transitioned into the power forward role while Adreian Payne comes off the bench.
