Jabari Parker’s most common NBA comparison is to New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony. The Duke star admits that he patterns many of his offensive moves after Melo, and says he would sign up for an Anthony-like career, but he seems less impressed with Anthony’s supporting cast in New York.
On today’s Dan Patrick Show, Patrick brings up the Anthony comparisons, but notes that Parker is more of a passer than Anthony. Parker responded with “I pass, but I have a team.” It will be interesting to see what kind of team Parker is given in the NBA. He is almost a lock to go in the top three of the NBA draft, and the teams that he may end up with may not have a much better overall roster than the Knicks, if at all.
