2014 NBA Draft: Jabari Parker Picks Coach K Over D’Antoni On SportsNation
The NBA regular season is coming to a close which means several teams who have endured losing are drawing closer to learning their position in the 2014 draft. Many have heralded the draft class as one that will be littered with NBA talent, pending a handful of players declaring themselves eligible for the draft.
One of the college prospects several NBA front offices are waiting to hear from is Duke forward Jabari Parker. As the college season wore on, many believed Parker was a lock to enter the draft, but with the Blue Devils’ NCAA tournament run coming to an abrupt end at the hands of Mercer University, rumors began to swirl that Parker would instead opt to return for his sophomore season.
Nonetheless, Parker was a guest on ESPN’s SportsNation during a segment that included the 6-9 forward answering five questions that pitted the benefits of staying in college against entering the draft. One of the questions posed to Parker was whether he would prefer to play for Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski or Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni. Naturally, Parker gave the nod to Krzyzewski.
