    First big name FA... at least he's confident. Gotta give him that.

    Somewhat good player with an oversized ego who gets payed like a star and has missed the playoffs with two season ending injuries in a row.

    I don't understand what you mean. Grant Hill and TMac never played for Memphis/Vancouver Grizzlies. Are you thinking of Orlando?

    WTF Pau Gasol is the biggest star Grizz ever had, Spanish GOAT and Olympic Gold Medalist.

    Someone needs to shut this guy's mouth who says these things on the day you got signed? Even Lebron's ego isn't this big wtf.

    In this times of "swagger" and social media, what you project out into the world seems to be the reality for lots of people. The truth is Parsons can ball. Not many 6'9 6'10 dudes got his facilitating passing shooting slashing game. If he can put it all together and stay healthy he can help someone win. But let's get real... not all MAX players are actually MAX players. James is a MAX player. Parsons isn't.

    I think Persons meant first big name FA who signed with the team. Gasol was traded if I'm not mistaken. However there has to be some other FA who signed with the team who's better than Persons. Maybe he signed for the most money, but he can't be the biggest name. Is he even a big name around the NBA? He's a known glorified role player.

    I don't begrudge the dude getting paid at all. I would do the same thing. He just is a waste of money (and oxygen for that matter)

    Nah, he is a good basketball player, who has worked the market to his advantage, it is the American way.

    Over/under on timing of first major injury this year having him miss at least 10 straight games? I vote February.

    He is an above average injury riddled douchebag who is using the market to his advantage. Nobody should begrudge him for making money like I said but he's a low character person and deserves the hate he gets. He brought it on himself.

    Good and hardest working basketball player for the 2013-14 season. I believed he logged the most minutes and distances that season. As good as Harden has been, his on coach re-assignment of Beverly on the in-bounder and Parsons on Lillard at the very last moment was a disaster that added to the fiasco that removed Parsons from the Rockets that off season.
