    Yep, we saw it first hand with Harrison Barnes...

    And Corey Maggette, and Shavlik Randolph, Josh McRoberts (lol)...the list goes on and on and on at dook.

    We love the arrogance, and over-confidence though...makes us grin real wide!

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

    ^Normally I would agree with you Tizu, but in this case I have to disagree. This is not your typical top 5 guy out of high school. Wiggins and Jabari are both regarded as basketball royalty, and for good reason. He has been playing against the best of the best whilst in high school. This kid is not from some po dunk town in Iowa, he was playing the best teams in the country, regularly. Talent like Wiggins and Parker do not come along very often, and I would say we have not seen talent like this since Durant or even Mello.

    This. Simma Down as they say. I'm not getting on the hype train. The kid was a phenom in high school, that doesn't always translate to the college game...we've seen it time and time again. Lets see how he does playing some big time schools against big time players...then we'll talk.

    If Parker stays for more than a year me and coach Williams are going to retire.

    I have a sneaking feeling that we will be hearing about Jabari ALOT this season. Will be nice to come back to this thread about half way through the season and check our predictions. I personally think if he stays more than one year, like he said he wanted to, he will be the best ever to lace them up for Duke, and that is saying alot. Old school type of game for Jabari.

    If he can pass out of a double/triple team for the assist, YES.
