Jabari has already said that serving a mission is no longer part of the
decision, so let's leave out our opinions of wether he should
have/shouldn't have because that was his decision, not ours. And as far as
serving a mission after playing in the NBA?? I know its possible, but I
don't think it would be right to leave for two years after signing a
contract to work for a professional organization. I'm not saying he
shouldn't have served, but the time to do it is before going pro.
No doubt! NBA!
I would love to see Jabari go to the NBA next year, play for a year or two and
then go on a mission. He wouldn't be the first high profile missionary age
young man to do so. Will Hopoate and David Archuleta both did it. Hopoate is
back to playing Rugby and it will be interesting to see what opportunities pop
up for Archuleta.
@Christopher B - as an American, I'm tickled that you feel comfortable
sharing your opinion. That said, I think he should have served a mission. But
who are we, but just a couple of guys wasting time commenting on an article that
has nothing to do with us.
I think Jabari made a really good decision to not go on a mission. I truly
doubt he will ever regret that decision.Best of luck at Duke or the
NBA next year.If you go to the NBA, we'll be crossing our
fingers the Jazz get you
If Jabari returns to Duke for a 2nd year why didn't he just go on an LDS
Mission? Maybe he wants to be the number 1 pick and maybe he feels if he stays
he can become the #1 pick. I don't really think its that hard of a
decision. You go pro.
