Default Re: Report: Jabari Parker Prefers Bucks, Might Have 'Tanked' Cavs Workout

^^^In what world is intentionally "tanking workouts" a good thing?

It would be a totally unprofessional thing to do.

Milkawakee probably does make the most sense.. still in the eastern conference. He'll probably live in the suburb in between Milkawakee and Chicago (like LeBron did from Cleveland to Akron). No pressure as the home town kid. Profit.

Parker's dad on Twitter:

Quote:
Sonny Parker on an ESPN report that his son Jabari "tanked" his workout with Cavs: "He wasn't raised like that. He wouldn't do that."

Quote:
More from Sonny Parker: "Jabari has a lot of morals, principles, values and integrity. He'll play for whoever drafts him."

Quote:
Sonny Parker added, "If Jabari didn't want to play there (Cleveland), he wouldn't have gone there, trust me."

Like I said... this is not a good look.

As you probably know, I'm leaning towards Wiggins anyway, so I think this may work out well for all parties involved. And, I worry about games getting in the way of one another with Kyrie, Parker and Dion, so if that's one of his reasons for preferring Milwaukee -- where he'd be the clear No. 1 scoring option right out of the gates -- then I may actually agree with him.

I like the Wiggins fit in Cleveland and I like the Parker fit in Milwaukee. I will say that I'm concerned about the 255 pound weigh-in for Parker. That's way too big for his build/frame at this stage. Hell, I thought his weight of 235 at Duke was too big. I wouldn't exactly call it a red flag, but it is concerning.

I'm assuming this isn't going to be a huge issue for him going forward and, if it's not, I like the core that you guys have in place. It makes sense on paper.
Agreed on all points, especially about fit between both prospects and their respective teams.

The interesting thing to note, is that the sources still mentioned that Parker is the likely selection for Cleveland, and that despite what doubt this workout created within ownership he is still the guy they're leaning towards. This probably goes much deeper than that, but I wouldn't put Jabari out of the running for #1 just yet.

Not as of yet, and I doubt there will be if there's any truth to these reports. All we have to go by right now is the footage I linked in the OP, of his draft workout in Santa Monica exactly a month ago. Relative to his reputation, he looked very quick, athletic, and explosive in that video, which is why the Bucks and Cavs (as a backup for Embiid) really liked him. And that's what makes this report so confusing...whether it was intentional or not, how the hell could a top 3 prospect allow himself to go from great shape to gaining 15-20 pounds and looking totally out of shape right before the draft? It's just absurd.

I think Jabari will be the best pick for the Bucks at #2. Embiid with these injury issues has too many red flags. Wiggins will take time and he just doesn't have that fire..but should be a good player. Jabari is the most NBA ready and will be the man in Milwaukee..but the Buck have to continue building around him. They have Giannis, Henson, and Wolters that they can go forward with as a young core. Sanders is imploding and Knight is not reliable. This is a deep draft so with their 2nd round picks they can get some gems if they draft good.

Of course he'd rather play for the bucks..
Closer to home, less pressure to win etc, can be the man on the bucks..

Better for a rookie than the Cavs current situation..

It was already obvious how much he didn't want to go to the Cavs. Just look at his and his friends' reactions at the end of this video.

Yup. And less #1 overall draft bust pressure.

This is just getting out now? Jeez RCF knew this days ago, already talked it to death, and that is why Wiggins is considered the top pick.

Also interestimg that news sites seem to get their info from fan forums.
