I haven't jumped into this thread because I have no interest whatsoever in Parker and I didn't want to inject into that into a thread that the young man might not be reading. If the coaches wanted him, I wasn't going to say anything negative while it was still an open recruitment.
Now that he's decided, however...
I don't see this as a big miss for us. Parker is out of shape and seems way too pleased with his own prospects. Was he going to pout if legitimate Marshall got the bulk of the low post PT?
We have a couple legit low post players we're recruiting for 2013. We have Mase and Marshall for 2012 and Marshall for 2013. We're fine on the low post.
Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."
The most up to date tweet I can find says Parker has four hats on the table--Duke, UCLA, OSU, Georgia. So at least we made the table.
Funny tweet also from airowe asking any Duke fans trying to get the live feed why they are bothering.
not sure if he has decided yet or not, but I am getting snippets from the pressser. These things are so self-serving and ridiculous. Pick your school and sign - this production that is made is so egotistical.
edit: Wow, now his teammates are all speaking. I'm sorry, if he comes to Duke I'll root for him like any other Blue Devil, but this is laughable.

Cameron Crazies Do Not Storm The Court
I'm trying to do 15 things at once but someone on Twitter said TP's family is wearing blue...
This YouTube stream is as bad as Tony Parker is at making up his mind. Not to mention it seems like every single person TP has ever known is speaking at this thing.
Tony has the Duke and Georgia hats directly in front of him, on his right and left respectively. The other hats are farther down the table.
Wow, talk about making the most of your 15 minutes.
