Bobby Ray Parks, Jr. had another strong performance that punctuated his rookie season in the NBA D-League.
Barely 24 hours after he scored a career-high 16, Parks, Jr. pumped in 13 but it was not enough to help the Texas Legends from bowing out, 84-104, at the hands of the Austin Spurs, who secured the Southwest Division title with their 30th win in 50 games.
Parks, Jr., a former 2-time UAAP MVP, completed his transformation from being the last man off the bench to become 1 of the key players in the Legends’ second unit.
He was no longer gun-shy attempting a season-high 15 in their season finale. He hit 6 of those, in his second straight 24-minute stint, while adding 5 rebounds and 1 steal for good measure.
The 6-foot-4 son of 7-time PBA Best Import Bobby Parks, Sr. ended his first NBA D-League season with a decent average of 4.6 points and 1.9 rebounds in 13.3 minutes for the Legends, who finished 23-27, good for third in the Southwest Division. – By Alder Almo
