His rookie season shortened to 25 games by a torn left ACL, Jabari Parker rebounded in 2015-16 to bump his scoring from 12.3 to 14.1 and help shore up the Milwaukee Bucks’ front line. Bright future ahead for the 21-year-old, much more promising than the seedy Chicago streets he came from. Parker talks about his journey from the Windy City to the pros in his latest piece published with The Players Tribune. The road from Chicago’s South Side rife with killings and chaos, to North Carolina and the calm academia of Duke University, and finally to Milwaukee as a young star and Jordan Brand athlete tying to turn a moribund franchise into a winner. Parker is too young to pen a life autobiography just yet, but this story provides the closest possible look at his ever-changing life and career. Get the full read here.
