A five star recurit committing to duke whats new? I can't even front Im a Duke fan though so good for us. The kid has great size and can handle like a guard. Already has an NBA body being around 6'8 and 220 which is huge considering he isnt even a freshman in college yet. This guy is a point forward in my mind no doubt.

All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

I really have no idea why they focus so much on race in sports anymore. Whenever something based on race comes up on ESPN I turn the channel I cant take listening to that annoying bull[expletive].

A point Forward right now would be Kyle Anderson... (one of my top favorite players next to Ryan Harrow)... He plays for UCLA and is also 6'8" and has almost recorded a few triple doubles this season

Yea, but I'm saying Parker shows that he can be a point forward. He has the body control and handels of a PG when the ball is in his hand. When you watch highlight tapes of the kid your just as likely to see a sweet dunk as a nice dime.

Well IDK if Duke was the best choice for him since he is more athletic than he is a jump shooter. On top of this a traditional pg isnt always the best for Coach K system since it revolves around getting shooters open and living and dying by the three ball.

The kid has already had a bunch of back lash from choosing Duke, a bunch of UNC fans have been harrasing the kid on twitter, and others. I dont understand how you attack a 17 old kid for choosing to go to the college of his choice. Pretty [expletive]ed up you asked me.

I know he is a forward, but he has the potential to be a point forward a la lebron james. Not saying he is as naturally gifter or talented as LBJ but he can play point forward just like him. I was just saying traditional pg's dont work in Coach K system because he is likely to have the ball in his hands a lot since he has the skills of a point forward.

He's not likely to have the ball in his hands a lot, which is cool. He's nothing like James but I can see why people are saying he is another James (which he is clearly not, he is more of a Melo/Pierce) but what makes him similar to them is he can play point forward, and he is unselfish with the ball, he's a team player, he doesn't think about himself, and he is patience and makes smart decisions. He is a good fit to me. Wish he would have chose Florida though, my team.

Yea, I dont mean he has the same game as LBJ he is more like Melo/Pierce since he has a more polish jumper, but I think LBJ is the best player to use when talking about a point forward achetype which is why I said he is like James from the point forward perspective.
