Injured Bucks Star Jabari Parker Calls His Mormon Faith the "Biggest Thing That Helps Me Every Day"

“I’ve got to make sure that I always worship and give God thanks because anything can happen at any moment in time, so you’ve just got to stay true,” Jabari Parker says.

Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Houston are some of the illustrious stops throughout the grind of a typical NBA season.

With no disrespect to the state of Utah, most players aren’t circling their calendars to play in Salt Lake City.

Injured Milwaukee Bucks star Jabari Parker is different. He actually loves the yearly trip to Utah.

“It’s real peaceful,” Parker said of Utah. “It’s a good family environment. It’s nice.”

Parker is also one the few NBA players who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
