Rookie Stars Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins, Nerlens Noel Struggle In Debuts

Andrew Wiggins

20 points, 19 rebounds, three assists – what a game for Jabari Parker! Except not really. Those numbers are the combined statistics from the debuts of young stars Parker, Andrew Wiggins, and Nerlens Noel. The Rookie of the Year favorites labored relative to expectations in their opening NBA contests, lending further credence to talk of early summer that 2014-2015’s crop of first-year players would never live up to sky-high expectations.

Bucks Work Movie Theater, Giannis Antetokounmpo Sweeps Floors

Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson

This doesn’t seem fair. Not only is Giannis Antetokounmpo the Milwaukee Bucks’ most intriguing player, but the 19 year-old isn’t even a rookie anymore. Shouldn’t manual labor be Jabari Parker’s job? In this amusing video of the Milwaukee Bucks surprising fans by working a local movie theater (video link), The Greek Freak is tasked with sweeping the floor while his teammates enjoy more engaging cinema jobs.

Video: Watch Jabari Parker Score 18 Points, Grab 9 Boards In Preseason Finale

Jabari Parker, Thaddeus Young

This is the type of box score line that will be common for Jabari Parker in 2014-2015: 18 points, (7-19 FGs), 9 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 steals, 0 blocks. That’s a double-edged sword, of course. It’s tough to fault the scoring and rebounding production, but you’d wish it came with increased efficiency and greater all-around impact on the game. But that’s just an accurate reflection of the ballyhooed Milwaukee Bucks rookie’s game right now, and will even likely be enough for him to take home some postseason award hardware. Read More »

Top picks of the NBA draft Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker faced-off for the first time last night, but you probably don’t know it. For reasons that continue to leave us baffled, Friday night’s preseason match-up between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Milwaukee Bucks wasn’t televised – anywhere. But this is still 2014, and fans in attendance were able to capture highlights of the rookies’ (mostly meaningless) show-down. Thank god, too. We would’ve been even more upset if this absolutely sick move by Parker wasn’t caught on camera. Read More »

Jabari Parker, Shawn Marion

Okay, so Jabari Parker wasn’t being guarded by LeBron James and these were hardly contest-worthy dunks. Anytime a rookie flashes even slight hints of their immense potential, though, you know we’re going to get excited. Read More »

Watch Jabari Parker Shine In Bucks Open Scrimmage

Jabari Parker (Benny Sieu, USATODAY)

Jabari Parker is the runaway favorite to win 2014-2015 Rookie of the Year. The number two overall pick of June’s draft is primed for a big offensive role with the Milwaukee Bucks, and already boasts a versatile scoring knack normally reserved for seasoned veterans. The 19 year-old, though, simply isn’t most rookies, and put his offensive talents – and recently trimmed physique – on full display by leading his team in scoring during a weekend open scrimmage.

Jabari Parker Says He’s Most Comfortable Playing Power Forward

Jabari Parker

There weren’t many questions about Duke’s Jabari Parker leading up to the 2014 NBA draft. The one his few detractors harped on most was whether or not he had the speed and quickness to defend small forwards. A natural big body that was relatively heavy during the pre-draft process, Parker hardly showed the defensive chops in his lone collegiate season that would lead you to believe he could capably check NBA wings. And if he really couldn’t, that meant Parker’s best position as a professional would be nominal power forward. Though the Milwaukee Bucks admitted immediately after the draft that they viewed their prized rookie as a stretch 4 this season, that incendiary strategy only gained traction when Parker confirmed it yesterday.
