London Bound Parker Named Rookie of the Month

Milwaukee Bucks rookie, Jabari Parker, has garnered league wide praise this week, being named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month ahead of his trip to London next month.

Parker, who’s set to compete with the likes of Andrew Wiggins for Rookie of the Year honours towards the end of this season, has been in dazzling form for the Bucks so far this season, recently topped by a career high 23 point performance against Brooklyn.

On the other side of things, Wiggins was named Rookie of the Month in the West, further proving that he and Parker are the two top performers from this season’s rookie class so far this season.

In the league’s other awards it was Steph Curry gaining the plaudits for Western Conference Player of the Month, whilst Jimmy Butler scooped the Eastern Conference award.

Golden State have been the league’s front runners so far this year, currently standing with a 16-2 record and equaling a franchise record 11 straight wins, with Curry’s performances one of the key areas of their success.

But it’s the success of Jabari Parker which many UK based fans will be happy to see, as he prepares to travel to the O2 Arena on January 15th to face Carmelo Anthony and the struggling New York Knicks in the Eastern Conference match-up.
