- fun faith fact! Jabari Parker faces the same decision most Mormons at his age address: 2 years of missionary work next year?
The 6' 11 1/2" 17-year-old graduate of Simeon Career Academy of Chicago oozes humility and grace, but Jabari Parker, whose name is Swahili for 'valiant', is more than a basketball player. The devout Mormon and Duke University freshman will tell you, "Basketball is what I do, but it's not who I am." He's a proud role model for kids in Chicago, and feels a big responsibility to be a good example.
