Milwaukee Bucks teammates decided to bring forward Jabari Parker off the bench during Saturday’s game against the Miami Heat due to violating team rules. When head coach Jason Kidd was asked which rule it was, he refused to elaborate.
Parker expressed his anger with his team Friday night after their fourth straight loss in Orlando. He then told media that there was a meeting and informed them of what was discussed. The information he provided was considered a “private, locker room dialogue”.
“I spoke up for the first time, and it didn’t go my way. I was getting thrashed, but hey, as long as I give them another perspective, I did my job.” – Jabari Parker
Teammates decided the move to bench Parker, his first time this season. The Bucks lost again that night, now on a five game losing streak.
