I posted an EDGE article Wednesday with Wahoo basketball player Cornel Parker. A couple of quotes didn’t make the article so I thought I’d share them here.
Parker on UVa’s Jontel Evans: “I liked him in high school [too as a great defender], but I think he’s a better football player. I think he could play on Sundays if he played football.”
Parker on his professional hoops career: “I signed with Golden State and stayed there for two months and then I went overseas [to] Turkey, France, and Japan. The best experience was probably Japan. The other places I really didn’t care too much for. They’re nice places. … Like I tell my friends, overseas is not for everybody. There are some good countries, but it’s still not the same as being home. You may practice in a cold arena or barn or something. It’s not like college or professional getting treated wise in some places. It’s just a big difference I think.”
