    Funny that Analyzed did not argue with your comment that PBA is a better or tougher level than ABL but I understand because you are rooting for his player Matt Wright. Last year Analyzed was always arguing that playing in ABL with 2 American imports is better than playing in PBA because at that time Matt Wright is making a descent numbers in ABL and not expecting that Ray Parks Jr. will play in ABL in the future and will get a better stats than Matt.

    Actually when you think about it both players Wright and Parks have basically proven they can be effective in the ABL and playing with and against PBA players ( Wright in current PBA conference and Parks by playing in Gilas OQT( there is no way the coaching staff will even consider him if he couldn't show anything in practice playing vs Gilas PBA players.

    To me if you base on the eye test , not stats if you can show you can deliver in the ABL ( yes with 2 imports etc etc) , but more importantly it's the fact that when you watch film , you can actually see the guy (whether Matt or Parks) score 3 pointers , score against imports etc, etc. that is verification to me that the player can play in the PBA ( off course how good a PBA player remains to be seen but much of that is about adjusting to the different style and PBA game) .

    Matt and Parks are 2 different players with one having certain advantages over the other in some areas, while the other is better in others. I would definitely choose Parks over Wright as a full time small forward. (or even point forward due to his versatility) but on the same token as full time shooting guard specialist and assuming you had a quality point guard and decent small forward I would choose Wright as my full time specialist shooting guard.

    I don't really see the need to flat out say whose better period. That's like saying whose better in their prime Kobe Bryant or Lebron James, huh ? I would then say for which team and which position SG , All star team or bottom of the standing team? it really depends

    I feel Parks is better player and he still can improve.

    Athleticism wise both are pretty athletic but slight edge to parks. Wright is a much better shooter but Parks is improving on that
    aspect and is a better slasher.

    Parks has a more complete game, able to get rebounds and assists too and defensively shut down the other player.

    For me, Parks still need to prove something.
    He performs better when the opposition is weak.
    This is the reason why I prefer that Alab should have taken either 1 local import, and the rest are pinoys or 1 non-asian import and either 1 local import/ pinoy. So that we can see whether he had really matured a lot in his play.
    Alab adding 2 american imports, hide Parks inefficiency. Although I believe Parks is better overall than Wright, and offers more value than him. Well, this is also the reason why I expect much from Parks, and why I suggested those combination of players above.

    The Road Not Taken: Bobby Ray Parks, Jr.’s unconventional path to basketball stardom
    By: Aljo Dolores

    In making major decisions, one simply cannot take all the options available. As hard as choosing may be, something has to be given up. It’s like a general rule: be it in career, in relationships, or in life as a whole.

    For some of us, it might seem like our paths were already decided even before we could make the choices for ourselves. People might expect us to follow the footsteps of someone influential in our lives, or take a certain path based on what the circumstances can offer.

    Take Bobby Ray Parks as an example. As a son of a PBA legend and a kid who played—and won—at US high school basketball level, he already created a lot of buzz even before he was able to play in college. The moment he returned to the Philippines, it seemed like his destiny was already set: dominate in college basketball, and then become a star in the PBA.

    Those three can help elevate the game of thailand. If another philippine team plays there, and all teams will have world import, then that league will be fun to watch.

    Parks delivers as Blackwater outlasts champ Ginebra in OT for back-to-back wins

    BOBBY Ray Parks scored Blackwater’s final seven points in overtime to lift his team to a 108-107 win over defending champion Barangay Ginebra to stay unbeaten in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum

    Parks had 28 points including baskets in the clutch as the Elite remained undefeated with a 2-0 win-loss card in a big follow-up to their victory over Meralco in the opener.

    Parks hit a huge triple and a lay-up that gave Blackwater a 106-99 lead before staving off a late rally by Ginebra. Scottie Thompson missed a corner jumper in Ginebra’s final possession to claim the victory.
