A 19-year-old Jabari Parker was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the second overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft. Even though Parker was very efficient for the Bucks from day 1 of his career, he tore his ACL in his rookie season and his season came to an end after just 25 games.

In his second season, he appeared in 76 games and averaged 14.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. However, the Bucks finished at 33-49 and failed to reach the playoffs.

His third season was once again cut short because of an ACL tear and he averaged 20.1 points (2nd on team), 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steals in 33.9 minutes over 51 games before the injury.

He returned for the 2017-18 season in February and finished the season averaging 12.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. He left the team after the season ended and signed a two-year, $40 million deal with the Chicago Bulls.

Parker's career in Milwaukee would have taken a different turn if it wasn't for the injuries that kept recurring all throughout his time with the franchise.
