Jabari Parker is not doing your ordinary summer workouts

SHARE Jabari Parker is not doing your ordinary summer workouts

Less than two months into last season, Jabari Parker was playing like a rookie of the year candidate. The Bucks small forward was averaging 12.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and was a major part of basketball resurgence in Milwaukee.

It all came to a crashing end on Dec. 15 for the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft when he tore his left ACL in a game against the Phoenix Suns.

It’s been a life of rehab since for the former Simeon star. While most players enjoy their summers off, Parker has been working every day to get back on the court. And, it’s not your ordinary workout.

From NBA.com:

One of the highlights of their workouts was a day trip to Calico Tanks Trail in Red Rock Canyon. Jabari and Tyler hiked the sandstone to take in the geology and beautiful scenery of Red Rock.

The Chicago native recently worked out in Las Vegas with Bucks rebab specialist Suki Hobson, doing various drills.

Sounds like Parker is all business.
