    If Duke wins a national championship with Jabari Parker nobody will be surprised and they may or may not give credit to Jabari.

    If BYU won a national championship with Jabari there would be no doubt as to the reason. A BYU national championship would look much better on his resume.

    At Duke he has a legitimate chance to win an NC. BYU will probably regress a little bit next year before the big three from Lone Peak get on campus. Either way, it won't matter what his resume looks like because he is going to the NBA regardless of the college team he plays on next season.

    With Duke a top 2 seed, with really as good of a chance to win a national championship, and BYU being a one and done(in the WCC tourney), and not even making the dance, I wonder if Jabari is happy with his decision?

    1. Be 3rd best in the WCC, lose to teams like San Diego Community College, not go dancing

    or

    2. Be top 5 team in the nation perenially, often advance to at least sweet 16, and be surrouned by other true "athletes"

    I wonder how Jabari came to his decision? Coin flip?

    "I wonder how Jabari came to his decision? Coin flip?"

    This may come as a shock to true-blue BYU fans, but maybe Jabari prayed about it and was inspired to do the smart thing and choose Duke.

    It is always a pleasure to see the Bumble B validating BYU sports. And yes, I think that JP actually did flip a coin. I have that on good authority.

    Shout out to Aunt B. (obsessed with all things BYU since 1995)!

    I wonder how long he considered going to the U before the coin toss?
