Jabari Parker’s Stock Unaffected by Loss?

Basketball Insiders

Let me put this way. If (Jabari) Parker finishes the loss to Mercer, and he’s bad, and they still lose, he goes down with something pretty close to his 14-7-3 line. Let’s give him two points, and a board, say, to be generous. So 16-8-3. Having a bad game and getting torched on the other end in a loss is actually better for his stock than not having been a part of the final few minutes regardless. At least then he isn’t viewed as a player so bad defensively “You can’t live with him.”

The reaction was mixed, obviously. Some reporters chimed in with scouts and GMs going wild on Parker. One scout I spoke with downplayed it. “Nothing new with (Parker) on the defensive end. I don’t know why it would affect his stock that much.”
