Jabari As Picture Of Consistency
While the headlines (and often the Vines) from Bucks games often seem to belong to Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker acquitted himself exceptionally well, as arguably his team’s most consistent performer throughout the preseason.
Parker closed out the preseason with a 19 points, 10 rebounds, double-double on Wednesday, which was very much in line with his reliable production through his team’s previous six games.
Parker finished the preseason as Milwaukee’s leading scorer and rebounder, coming in second in terms of steals, and shooting 51.9 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from three-point range.
The Chicago native managed to score in double digits and amass at least five rebounds in each of the Bucks’ games, while showing significantly improved defensive effort compared to his previous two seasons in the league, and glimpses of his playmaking talent.
Maybe, it suits Parker to be a little out of the limelight, as that’s not his character, but make no mistake about it, his play looks set to draw no shortage of attention in the coming months.
