Jabari Parker Getting Player Of The Year Talk

Parker is just a freshman five games into the season but he's a legitimate candidate for Player Of The Year.

The Plain Dealer has a Player of The Year Watch and the paper is currently on Jabari Parker. And he's a legitimate candidate. We haven't seen a whole lot of other teams yet, but it's hard to imagine anyone much better. He's way beyond his years.

But even so, what caught our eye in this article was the section on Rodney Hood and his eye-popping shooting stats: "He's been an incredibly efficient scorer so far, as he's shooting 72.3 percent from the field, 72.7 from beyond the arc and 82.5 percent from the line."

Holy smokes, that's surreal, even against early season competition.
