    You're misinformed. Jabari Parker is LIMITED by his athleticism, which is not elite tier. This means at the end of the day, it's going to be very hard for him to match up against legitimate NBA superstars in the league, because the true superstars combine their talent and skillsets with outstanding athleticism...very few superstars can achieve their status without one or the other.

    At the end of the day, Wiggins is ranked ahead of Parker (and rightfully so) because of two things. Firstly, his otherworldly athleticism - he's an athletic specimen. Great size for the SF position, 44" vertical, blazing speed...what more could you want? Parker's more grounded...and while the two have different skillsets, Wiggins has nearly as much skill as Parker does at the moment - and the silver lining on all college recruits is that they're still nowhere near tapping their full potential.
