#RookieWatch: Dante Exum

Being just under a third of the way through the NBA season its time to check back in on my Rookie to see how season number 1 is tracking.

NBA: Preseason-Chicago Bulls at Milwaukee Bucks

Jabari Parker Torn ACL; Will Miss Remainder Of Season

Milwaukee Bucks Rookie Jabari Parker has informed teammates of a torn ACL in his left knee sustained during an awkward drive in the paint against the Suns yesterday, per Y! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

Parker, the #2 overall pick in this year’s draft, has been averaging 12.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, and is also second in field goal percentage (.490), helping the Bucks clamber back towards playoffs relevancy. 

The young forward will now miss the rest of the 2014/15 NBA season. We wish him a speedy and healthy recovery.

Believe it or Not: NBA Season 2014/15 Predictions

My personal belief is that if your predictions are said loudly, told to many people and said with a great deal of overconfidence that they just might come true. Here are my Top 5. Believe it or Not.
