Jabari Parker is a rare recruit

Those close to Jabari Parker have stopped trying to deflect the comparisons, even to the king of all Chicago basketball, Michael Jordan. "I want to be just like Michael Jordan," Parker said. "Chicago greats get noticed around the city. People have a lot of respect for them. I look up to those guys a lot. I want to be part of that family." In one way, at least, the MJ talk appears legit; Parker, no doubt, possesses that extraordinary killer instinct. (ESPN.com)
