The 2014 NBA Draft has a top tier of talent of that has been hyped for years prior to some of these players even stepping foot on an NCAA court. It has caused NBA general managers to tank the 2013-14 season for a chance at a top draft pick and has captured the imagination of the fans of lottery teams around the league. One of the players that sits firmly in this elite tier is Duke freshman Jabari Parker. Parker has a rare gift on the offensive side of the floor and looks every bit of a go-to scorer in the NBA with his combination of outside shooting, post scoring and ability to create off the dribble. Parker’s name will be in the discussion for the top overall pick in the 2014 draft right up until new NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced his first ever No. 1 selection.
