For the first time in NBA History, the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, and New York Knicks failed to enter the NBA Playoffs. For a moment that was painful on the part of the respective teams and their fans, but when you take a closer look, their chances of acquiring one of the blue chips that declared for the NBA Draft 2014 went higher than most teams.
One of those blue chips who decided to join this year's NBA Draft is Duke University's Jabari Parker. He's a player who can definitely help an NBA Team in an instant with his athleticism and soft touch from the perimeter.
On top of that, he also has a tremendous hunger to improve on his game. In fact, during his declaration for the NBA Draft, he said:
"Ultimately, I boiled my decision down to two simple questions:
1.Which environment -- college or the NBA -- offers me the best opportunity to grow as a basketball player?
2.Which environment -- college or the NBA -- offers me the best opportunity to grow and develop off the court?
The answer to both questions is undeniably the NBA."
That's the reason why the Lakers, the Celtics, and the Knicks should do everything within their power to get this one heck of a baller, Jabari Parker! He could be the answer to their problems.
