GIF: Quincy Acy Almost Tears The Rim Down

The Knicks gave up 120 points to the Bucks tonight in a 120-107 loss and Jabari Parker didn’t even have a great game. Fortunately, expectations are low for the Knicks this season — though, not according to the people we follow on Twitter. With that in mind, it’s best to just focus on any improvements. Regardless of New York’s troubles, Quincy Acy did his best to try and rip the iron off the backboard on a dunk that’s making the poor rim at MSG continue to vibrate in fear. Read More »

Watch Jabari Parker Seal His Team’s Win With Sick Spin And Dunk In Crunch Time

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 »

Video: Kevin Love Smokes Milwaukee Sans LeBron James & Kyrie Irving

Kevin Love

Kyrie Irving is resting a janky ankle; LeBron James is taking a respite after his emotionally taxing trip to Brazil against his former ‘mates in Miami. That left Kevin Love alone and the supporting cast against the Bucks last night and their rookie sensation, Jabari Parker. It wasn’t a problem, though, with Love leading the Cavs to a 106-100 win.

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 »

Milwaukee might have had the worst record in the league last season, but they’ve got an excellent rookie in Jabari Parker, a new head coach in Jason Kidd, a more svelte O.J. Mayo and the Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo. The latter showed another flash of brilliance on Saturday with a block on one end and a flush on the other. Read More »

Pau Gasol was a beast last night during Chicago’s 91-85 win over the Bucks. Chicago’s big free agent acquisition finished with 20 points, 11 boards and three blocks in less than 30 minutes. But it was Derrick Rose who really stood out and showed he’s still got nitrous tanks in his engine. Read More »

Watch Jabari Parker Shine In Bucks Open Scrimmage

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.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Is Embracing The Chance To Play Point Guard

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Tyreke Evans

If mistakes are the portals of discovery, summer is the perfect time to make them. Every player and team enters each offseason with several goals in mind, many of which hinge on whether or not certain skills can be developed and honed before the coming season kicks off. But training and practice performance only matters so much; if those additions and improvements can’t be made in-game, they’re all for naught. With that reality in mind, Summer League play has become something of a test lab for the league’s young players. And what was our favorite experiment among a host of many? Giannis Antetokounmpo, point guard. Read More »

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.
