Strengths:Lighting quick point guard who loves to push the ball up the court .... Has very good leadership skills can take a group of strangers and mold them into a team like he did in the 2000 Nike Hoop Summit .... Looks for open teammates when the defense clogs up the lane against his penetrations if nobody is open Parker can easily hit a 17-foot pull-up jumper .... Solid defender blessed with quick hands, and good foot quickness .... Has good ball handling skills protects the ball well and makes good desicions passing the ball .... Is a threat to steal the ball at any time due to his ability to read passing lanes ... Can spot up and hit the 3-point shot .... Sees the floor well due to his court vision and looks for open teammates ..... Good finisher can switch hands and protects the ball in penetrations ....Unselfish could average more points but chooses to set teammates ....

Weakness: Could be a post target for bigger NBA point guards ..... Strong players give him fits on defense due to his lack of upper body strength .... Even though he has 3-point range he doesn't hit it with consistency .... Could stand to add 5-10 pounds of weight on his thin frame ..... Has a tendency to rush himself offensively which can result in turnovers .... Lack of size hurts him as he has problems passing out of traps and double teams .... While he has played some good competition this pales in comparison to the talent he will face in the NBA .....
