There’s only so much that you can take out of a mixtape, regardless of how good the player looks.

In this case, Jabari Parker is playing in a summer league where defense is, shall we say, lacking and he’s probably the best player on the floor by a good margin every time he steps on the court.

That said, there is reason for Duke fans to be a bit excited here. I saw Parker in late-June at the Kevin Durant Skills Academy, and while he played well, the big fella looked like he might have been a bit too big. He looks slimmer here.

Oh, and he’s throwing down between-the-legs dunks.

So even if Parker is a bit heavy at this point, it doesn’t exactly look like it’s affecting his explosiveness.
