OnMilwaukee.com—March 12, 2015

Dressed in a sharp, fitted grey suit with a white dress shirt and white Air Jordans, Jabari Parker leaned against the brick of the BMO Harris Bradley Center Wednesday night, and bowed his head.

Gatorade, an iconic sports drink (and now recovery food) company was hours away from rolling out its newest campaign for its Gatorade Recover product line, centered around the Milwaukee Bucks rookie forward.
