Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Keith Rivas – I personally see Parker breaking out more than Andrew Wiggins next season, and the main reason for that is that he’ll be fully healthy. We really didn’t get to see what Parker is truly capable of when it comes to carrying the young Bucks, but we will in the 2015-16 go-around.
Knowing that, the rest of the league should be very afraid.
Jr. Williams – Jabari Parker made a great impression last season, and despite playing only 25 games during his rookie year, he quickly became one of the top players on an up-and-coming Bucks team. Parker was one of the go-to scorers for the Bucks before his injury, and before he was sidelined he helped his team obtain a winning percentage better than .500, including impressive wins over the Grizzlies, Hawks, and Rockets. This season Parker will have a chance to build on his early success, and don’t be surprised if he breaks the top-10 SF’s in the league this season.
Ben Buchanan – Parker was the early favorite for rookie of the year last season before he tore his ACL. Parker was really impressing with the Milwaukee Bucks, as he was averaging 12.3 ppg and 5.5 rpg at the small/power forward position. If Parker can return to his pre-injury form the sky’s the limit for him. Next season he should not be rushed back, but if he can return to his old form by the end of the season it is a very good sign.
