    If he were playing for almost any other school, I would say he was a shoe in to be their best freshmen ever, going to be a little bit harder at Duke. Just wanted to gauge what you fellow Duke fans think about his chances to be one of our best ever, if not the best ever freshmen on Duke campus.

    Has he learned all the "Gangsta" hand gestures, and clothing, etc?

    Should fit in nicely. OhBoy.

    Lets not crown the young man just yet, he has a long way to go and its not easy being a freshman.

    I personally think so.

    I saw him in person and haven't seen a better duke player since Kyrie Irving, forget freshman only.

    I think Jabari has the potential to be better than Kyrie because 1) hopefully he's healthy, and 2) he will be the unquestioned focal point of the team.

    The last time I saw a player at Duke play a full season and was as good as Parker was probably Elton Brand or Grant Hill.

    Seriously, just wait until you see him play. Anyone that saw his games as a Senior in high school may be misguided. He was out of shape because of a broken ankle and the inability to play or condition at all for almost 4 months. He has completely changed his body and says he's in the best shape of his life.

    There is no weakness to his game. He's big (6'9" 245), long arms, above-average athleticism, finishes around the rim with authority, blocks shots, gets in passing lanes, has incredible court vision and savvy, great ball-handler, outstanding shooter from both mid-range and 3pt line, can post up smaller defenders. He can do it all.

    This kid is going to be amazing to watch. Wait until November... he is going to take College Basketball by storm

    Will Parker???

    Had some success in his first at UNC with 355 yards on 84 carries, but was only used sparingly in his last three years. Had a handful of excellent pro seasons with Pittsburgh, including 2 Pro-Bowls and 2 Superbowl Rings (longest run from scrimmage in SB history).

    Jabari will succeed because he fills a need since Plumlee is gone. I'm not saying that he can do what Plumlee did for Duke, but that he will take up space down low. Offensively, he will be a major threat on the low block which will give Duke the inside-out option which will free up the perimeter. And Duke's got lots of shooters obviously (despite the loss of Seth and Ryan). But also, when Marshall comes up alongside Hairston or Jefferson, Jabari can also become a focal point as a perimeter threat either to drive and dish, drive and create or stretch the D with his perimeter shooting. At any given time, he can be Grant Hill on the perimeter or Christian Laettner down low along with Laettner's outside touch. Nothing anyone in the ACC has seen before.

    Defensively, he will probably need to lay low and let the other four do the dirty work. He's too valuable on the offensive end to show his defensive ability and risk picking up fouls. But with his size, he will definitely get his 7-10 boards per game...
