Jabari Parker looks to escape Derrick Rose’s shadow

The comparisons to Derrick Rose began the first time Jabari Parker walked onto the court in a Simeon uniform nearly two years ago. And they aren’t about to stop, so it’s probably time to check and see how Chicago’s current phenom stacks up next to Rose, who is clearly the most popular player in recent history to move from the city to the NBA. Parker doesn’t have a city title yet, but he already has two state titles and a legitimate shot at getting four. He’s likely to eclipse Rose in that category. (Chicago Sun-Times)
