ShareWhere he’s been: In what’s worryingly becoming a trend, I’m looking at another Buck who had a disappointing ’13-14 season.

ShareFirst, the most important thing that happened. Jabari Parker showed off a little bit of what got people so hot and bothered about him early on last season at Duke: That warms and brightens the coldest, darkest soul … which of course is mine.
