    Still waiting on which Roy Tar Heel has made a mark.

    Back on topic.

    Once Jabari gets to the next level...

    maybe he'll be the first ex-dookie to finally make a real NBA mark.

    If I might, I would like to proffer an answer to that question. Consider these numbers, 5 consecutive years of scandals and investigations, 2 -7 in the last 9 games against your rival in basketball and 0 - 2 in your last two meetings in football, a 1-4 start to the conference season, and a flagship that is sinking faster than the Titanic. Now what else would you have to talk about? Well that and a tournament game played several years ago.

    So you are saying the jeweler conducts bad business practices. Why is that a Duke problem, k problem or NCAA violation

    I have a 1978 Chevy Vega with 250,000 miles on it and a blown engine. The tires are bad and the upholstery has been worn down to the padding. Oh, and it was in a flood. I value this vehicle at $100,000 but if you give me a down payment of $30,000 I'll finance the rest.

    Just because a jeweler puts a price tag of $100,000 on some gaudy jewelry doesn't mean that the goods are worth $100,000. You yourself just insinuated it would be preposterous to give out a line of credit for that amount to anyone without a proven means of paying the balance. And certainly a guy averaging 5 ppg in college doesn't seem like a good risk either... something that's supported by the fact that he spent two years in the D league at $20K per year.

    Of course, the line of thinking that you wouldn't extend the credit to just anyone sort of goes out the window if the down payment made actually covers the cost and profit of the goods sold. At that point, you would happily extend credit to anyone naive enough to pay the inflated price.

    Your problem is that you have nothing other than your assumption of what the jeweler would or would not do. It's not as clear cut as say... weed dealing felons providing high end rental cars.

    Again... If I have a product that cost me $20k and I can sell it for $100k with a huge down payment and to be paid in full in 3 months I will do that deal anytime. If any of you guys want me to get you funded on a $100k deal for a high mark up product(like brown diamonds) and you will pay my cost for the product and all I have to do is collect the money or repo the jewelry(coming out slick with paid for jewelry) I am ready to hook you up. Especially if you will have a degree from one of the best colleges in the world. Pro tip ~ A CPU would have bought that deal without human eyes ever hitting it for certain products. I would say the lender had a reasonable amount of consideration with the down payment to assume that he could pay for the items. If he doesn't then he could sue for the money or repo the jewelry and keep the down payment. Is there one person on this site that would not sign off on free money?

    Yeah, I heard that they give out $100K lines of credit for jewelry to those without any means to pay it legitimately back like candy...hey, what's that big lump in the rug?

    Unproven allegations against the cold hard facts of proven impermissible benefits to two players... fantasy against reality says hi right back.

    Oh, and as for the public vs. private fallacy, the funding status of a university has no bearing in an NCAA investigation. None of the things that resulted in PJ or LMac getting caught were items discovered through freedom of information processes.

    Parker, a freshman, who many project to leave school for the NBA at the end of the season, did not disappoint the 15 NBA scouts that were in attendance. Parker finished with 17 points and 15 rebounds in 32 minutes of work. His eight points at the half led all scorers. Parker was on the receiving end of highlight-like alley-oops, was blocking shots and grabbing boards. He showed that he was the real "diaper dandy".

    "Jabari was a beast on the boards tonight. The rebounding stat really jumps out for me," Coach K said. "So much is expected of him. His defense was outstanding."

    Why is it Roy (and not K) is the one with players getting suspended or not even being petitioned back onto his team due to impermissible benefits then?

    Deng and Irving were fortunate to play for a coach who supported their NBA aspirations and the decision to go pro after one year... unlike James Michael McAdoo who has gone from lottery pick after one year to a guy who will be lucky to sniff the first round after 4 years.

    Jabari will be a second round pick when K gets finished with him.

    Agreed Tizu, where there is no where to go but down, and given injuries that you have seen such as Marshall, Strickland, Lattimore, etc. I'd find it hard to beleive that he won't take the money unless Duke purchases a bit more insurance than the NCAA provides for star athletes getting injured. I remember worrying about Gio getting to the NFL draft healthy and now I just want to see him get to the second contract. Another injury would have really stunted or eliminated any Pro opportunity.

    OK, that is funny. Meeks does need to lose more weight; he's not exactly fleet footed. I see good potential with Meeks.

    As for Parker, it's tough to give up all that NBA cash and return to school and risk injury. While he'd benefit from another year with K, he has a ton of potential and would most likely be a very high draft pick.

    K seems to believe he is in. Ok condition.

    His conditioning issues were last year after his injury.

    With readily available NBA trainers & dietitians, Jabari could address his fitness concerns next year, but would have to make it more of a priority than he has to date.

    Will be interesting to see how attached he is to being a bmoc.

    Bet you're just hoping he'll stick around another year to play with Okie, Jones, and Winslow. Yep, bet that's what you're really hoping for.

    Jabari could use another year at the college-level to increase his stamina and reduce his body fat.

    How dense does one have to be to comment on someone not winning an NCAA championship when said individual has only played the first half of his first season of college ball. If only the trolls would actually watch some games and educate themselves on the team rosters, maybe then they could add something intelligent to the conversation.

    You have no point. As always, you change the subject.

    And Jabari will make more money and be more successful than either May or McCants.

    Oh, and he hasn't even finished his first year and he hasn't left Duke yet?

    Now, change the subject again.

    They also made the decision to draft Sean May and Rashad Mccants in the lottery.

    "NBA Executives" also made the decision to draft Sam Bowie ahead of Michael Jordan.

    How'd that turn out?

    Until the last minute they can declare expires and he is still at Duke I will believe he is heading to the NBA.

    That way I can be pleasantly surprised if he stays.

  • seedofdoubt Jan 21, 2014

    1. Parker said he would play for 2 years or more. Don't see him changing his mind coming from a family that values an education.
    2. Hasn't learned how to pass out of a double team, Forces unwise shots when he's being double teamed. I don't think he's ready yet.
    3. Playing the 4 instead of the 5 next season will polish his skills at his natural position.
    4. Gets to play with his friends...doesn't get any better!

    and Smart better hope it doesn't bite him in the tail come draft time.

    We can hold out the hope until the day he says "See ya" to Duke, though! :)

  • 903 Hail Providence Jan 21, 2014

    Marcus Smart gave up being a Top 5 pick in last year's draft knowing that staying an extra year would mean going into the most loaded draft in a long time this season. It would be nice to get him back, but Duke's gonna be in pretty good shape next year and Coach K will have an easier time distributing playing time without him.

  • modukev5saysbyebye Jan 21, 2014

    My heart says stay JB but my head says "Go on take the money and run".

  • Leave it to Beaver Reruns Jan 21, 2014

    This is very wishful thinking. If he is top three, and I expect he will be, it would be a very risky move. When it comes to the draft, if you are the player, ALWAYS sell high.

  • Tizu Jan 21, 2014
    Sports Legend

    I've heard this a lot. From the very beginning of his recruitment / commitment to Duke that he wanted to stay at least 2 years, possibly try to graduate in 3 years, then go Pro. However, Coach K feels the opposite. He stated on the Dan Patrick show the other day that it was "very unlikely" JP would stay another year as it would be very hard to pass up being 1-3 in the draft.

    I guess we'll see.

    Sam Smith of Bulls.com:

    And the growing view among NBA executives seems to be Jabari Parker will not leave Duke this year. Chicagoan Jahlil Okafor, a Parker friend and big man, is going to Duke next season. Parker is a bright young man with a strong family and the feeling is he understands both the importance of education and feels he owes Duke and the chance to have a great Duke team, which more than likely is the next two seasons. Plus, Parker has seen what staying in school has done for other greats compared with the tough starts for even stars like Kobe Bryant.
