Jabari Parker Is Going To NBA, Will Enter NBA Draft

Is anyone surprised Jabari Parker would enter the 2014 NBA draft?

After the year Parker had for Duke he was ready to go.

Duke University has announced that Parker will forgo his college eligibility and entire the NBA Draft.

Here's Parker explaining his decision.  Thanks SI.com



Parker won the 2014 ACC Freshman of the Year award averaging 19.7 points per game, second in the ACC in scoring.  He averaged 8.7 rebounds per game.

"Jabari could not have been better. He is the epitome of what you would want a basketball player to be – outstanding everyday on the practice court and in the classroom and a very humble young man,” Krzyzewski said in a statement. “He had a fantastic freshman year and is so deserving of the opportunity to play in the NBA and follow his dream."

While it was a tough decision for Parker he's ready to make this step.
