He’s graced the cover of Sports Illustrated and has been compared to LeBron James and tonight, Duke Guard Jabari Parker, is living up to his hype.
Parker had a sensational Freshman season at Duke, so much so, that he’s being awarded the Wayman Tisdale Award which is given to the top freshman in college hoops.
Doug McDermott of Creighton is also in town to receive the National Player of the Year Award.
Wichita State Head Coach Gregg Marshall is receiving the Iba Award given to college basketball’s coach of the year.
Parker hasn’t stated if he’s going pro just yet, but did have some funny comments about the Thunder in the video above.
