Jabari Parker is still the #1 pick for the NBA?

For all the critics who still are not convinced Jabari Parker should be the 1st overall pick in this years NBA draft, I need you to wake up. He clearly has given himself enough separation from his counterparts Julius Randle, Andrew Wiggins, Marcus Smart and Joel Embid. 

Now his DUKE blue devils did take an early exit one the NCAA tournament but Parker's ability to carry a team was not affected. The NBA is simply a place where guys who truly play inside- out dominate. Parker has a face up game similar to Paul Pierce but with an added Carmelo Anthony bully infused. He attacks the offensive boards as well stretches the floor with his three ball. As with any NCAA freshmen, his defense needs some work but being from Chicago gives him the edge to compete on. The worlds biggest basketball stage. The NBA loves to stack skill sets, With passing, shooting, ball handling, low post scoring and rebounding, Parker is simply to skilled to pas up. Basketball Execs work will begin after the 1st pick.. Woof Woof
