Chicago always has been a hotbed for basketball talent, and that continues to be the case today.
The past was Isiah Thomas. The present is Derrick Rose. The future is Jabari Parker and Anthony Davis.
Parker, a Simeon junior, is considered the No. 1 high school player in the nation. Davis, who is out of Perspectives High School in Chicago, was the No. 1 player in the Class of 2011 and is considered a potential No. 1 pick in the NBA draft after his freshman season at Kentucky.
Both players are featured in ESPN the Magazine’s NEXT issue, which will come out this month. You can vote for Parker, Davis, Kyrie Irving, Andre Drummond or Perry Jones as being the NEXT basketball player here.
