Malik Parsons is a senior at San Diego Lincoln High. He’s a guard. And he has pump fake moves for days.
Most importantly, Parsons is utterly convincing when he throws on the brakes at the rim when he’s on a fastbreak, leaving defenders to enter cartoonish levels of air time.
Case in point:
Yup. That’s how you turn a contested layup into a bunny. Luckily no defenders were injured in the making of this highlight.
Incredibly, Parsons still doesn’t appear to have a Division I destination yet. There’s still time to change that, coaches. He’s only 6-foot-1, but that makes it all the easier to duck underneath a defender when he goes flying overhead.
