Basketball phenom Jabari Parker has yet to declare whether he will continue at Duke for his sophomore year or enter the 2014 NBA Draft. The AP's Joe McCreary quoted Parker recently: "A deciding factor is where I'm going to grow the most, whether it's in the NBA or even in college, the learning experiences that I need as far as (growing as) a basketball player." Luckily, one thing he is forthcoming about is the music he listens to off the court. Since music is such a powerful motivator during workouts or before competition, here are some of the tunes you'll find playing through Parker's headphones.
