    Granted I've only watched him play a handful of times, and he is just a kid, but he looks to me like he has the BB IQ of Lebron, with the athletic ability of Paul Pierce. Shoots, rebounds, passes (does everything) much like Lebron does, but he lacks that freak athletic ability.
    That's probably pretty fair. I actually think Pierce is a decent comp.

    As I've said before, Parker is very polished for his age. That makes him more dominant now, but maybe lesser so once others catch up to that polish but have more athleticism.
    From what little I've seen of Parker, he has a pretty diverse set of offensive skills (he can pull up, catch-and-shoot, make timely reads and cuts, and operate from in-between, both facing up and with his back to the basket). How many NBA guards and wing players ever "catch up"? Kobe and Dirk have been shining examples over the last handful of years of how a well-tuned mid-range game (operating in the mid-post with their backs to the basket) can be far more effective than isos, drive-and-dish and P&Rs. Not a lot of players are catching up. Maybe Parker continues to play ahead of people, leveraging defenses in ways they're not accustomed to handling.

    ^^^ That's why he'll be very good. If he wasn't so polished with his offensive skillset, he'd be just another NBA guy and nothing special.

    Pierce seems like a pretty good comparison.

    He's actually about 60/40 MSU/puke .. proximity making up the difference. Apparently he just decided last night. I suppose it could change, but a couple coaches were called today to be told, directly, by Jabari ... rather than them hearing along with everyone else.

    Oh yeah, forgot about Gyp .. guess you're happy!

    The college choice isn't a prediction, it's done.

    That indicates no mission. That is the right move in my opinion.
    If he gets to be companions with me, right decision. If not, bad.
