Duke Star Jabari Parker

I MIGHT LEAVE SCHOOL EARLY

... to Bake!

Baking News



Duke basketball phenom Jabari Parker could very well be the first pick in the NBA draft ... if he doesn't become Martha Stewart first -- 'cause the guy has some serious baking skills. 

Parker showed off his culinary prowess recently by rewarding the swarms of Duke fans camping out for the March 8th battle vs. UNC (Yes, March 8th, they’re crazy) with his signature “Jabari Bars.”

Check out the video… it’s a serious culinary experience, with Jabari refusing to detail his full list of ingredients, and at one point saying “If they like them, I might have to leave college to be a professional dessert maker.”

The verdict? One student said that the Jabari Bars were a “12 out of 10.”

Seems like another reason for Paula Deen to be scared of a big black guy.

Not to put him down, because, good for him for trying to develop a skill off the court, but those are not an original creation.. They are called 7-Layer Bars and a staple at bake sales and potluck dessert tables for decades.

Helpful hint for Jabari: a food processor will take care of those graham crackers quickly and simply. Even putting them in a gallon ziploc and running a rolling pin over them will make things much easier on you.

What do you think is the average SAT score on the Duke basketball team? And what is the average SAT score in any Duke classroom? Maybe he is only qualified to play basketball or bake, he. Is not going to be a brain surgeon or rocket scientist.
