After his rookie knee injury, Jabari Parker worked his butt off and came back an improved player. When we saw him we almost didn’t recognize him - he had transformed his body that much and was reaping the rewards of his incredible effort.

Well that’s all over and time to start again because in a cruel twist, Parker blew out his left ACL - the same one - in a game Wednesday against Justise Winslow’s Miami Heat.

He’s going to miss a year while he rehabs.

Given how hard he worked last time, we know what he’s about to do. The PT guys better get their caffeine lined up. They’re going to need it.
