Jabari Parker is going to be an interesting player to watch this season. The 21-year-old forward is going to be a huge cog in the Milwaukee Bucks’ offense, and he showed promise after averaging 14.1 points on 49 percent shooting last year.
Milwaukee took on the Dallas Mavericks Friday night, and Parker had the most memorable moment from the matchup. The contest was relatively underwhelming, and the Bucks pulled out the 88-74 victory behind Parker’s 21 points.
At one point during the night, the former Blue Devil went up for a dunk, flushed it through, and then hit his head on the rim on his descent.
He was never looked at as a freak athlete, but that move right there is pretty freakish. Standing 6’8, Parker is slightly above-average when measured against his contemporaries, but it requires a sizeable vertical to get your head to the ten-foot mark.
Not only does he look a little dazed afterward, but he also had to spend some time on the bench to ice his noggin:
