We always heard Jabari Parker was different, an old soul living in a teenager’s body. Recent rumors about his draft status confirmed that. Parker, probably the best freshman in America this year and a lock for one of the top three picks, is reportedly strongly considering returning to Duke.

Earlier today, to the surprise of no one, Andrew Wiggins declared for the draft. He’s locked up a top-three spot and will surely factor into discussions of the No. 1 pick. Yet all season long, people have argued whether he’s even the best swingman in this class. Jabari Parker may or may not come out this year–GMs are starting to get worried that he’ll stick around Duke for his sophomore season–but the Blue Devil stud has been consistently productive from the very first game.

Bobby Knight Says The NBA “Raped” College Basketball

One-and-done has become the normal trajectory for the top players in men’s college basketball after the NBA instituted an age requirement for eligibility in their Draft. The change has led to a lot of self-righteous indignation on the part of “educators,” believing the NBA offers a poor substitute for a college degree. That argument is the same that led to the NBA’s age requirement in the first place. But now, with the NBA set to debate the NBPA — whenever they decide to elect an executive director to replace Billy Hunter — about increasing that age requirement to 20 years of age, and the wide open NBA futures of some of the top players in this year’s freshman class, it’s opened the floodgates on the debate once again. Bobby Knight has walked right through that newly open terrain with his recent comments that the NBA has “raped” college basketball. Read More »

Okay, so maybe this year’s NBA Draft class isn’t quite as good as we thought. There are no LeBrons. No KDs. There might not even be a D-Wade in here. The class from 2003 is much better, and let’s not even go into discussions concerning the ’96 class or 1984. With that being said, there is a ton of talent, and we also have to remember: it’s not even April yet. With so many young players coming out, we can guarantee your opinion of them will be drastically different once we get closer to the summer. Read More »
