Chicago native Jabari Parker did not like having to wear a cheesehead

Tuesday September 16th, 2014

There are pros and cons to Jabari Parker playing in Milwaukee, less than two hours up I-94 from his native Chicago. On the one hand, he gets to stay close to home, but on the other he may find himself on the wrong side of some big rivalries.

Bucks-Bulls isn't much of a rivalry, but Bears-Packers definitely is. So when Parker and some other Bucks went to the Packers-Jets game on Sept. 14, he was the victim of some good old-fashioned rookie hazing.

You can watch the whole thing on the Bucks' website, complete with Parker apologizing to Chicago fans for his traitorous headwear.
