    Totally agree with you on this one. His consistent hardwork has definitely earned him a starting spot over t-will and bud. I especially like how he is always rushing towards the basket when a shot goes up to find a rebound. As of now, he needs to develop some confidence in his scoring but time will take care of that.

    What I like about Parsons is something I saw the second he went and dunked on Blake Griffen. He got out on the floor and played hard. He didn't worry about scoring; instead he executed on both ends of the floor. Tonight he confirmed that these instances were no fluke. He played good defense on Durant, hustled on both ends of the floor, made good passes, grabbed more boards than our bigs, forced several turnovers and grabbed three steals. The guy is smart, quick and tall. I like what I'm seeing.

    Ryan Bowen, Keith Van Horn, Ryan Andersen, Chase, Shane Battier.

    Why only compare him to white players?

    I love how he plays hard on both ends. Does what is needed and doesnt make too many mistakes. Good shooter.

    I wanna see what hes like when he puts the ball on the floor. Whats his handles like? I just wanna see if there is potential for him to work with the ball in his hands.

    I kinda like that. I wouldnt mind sliding Budinger to the 2 if Kevin Martin were to get moved.

    Its hard to predict who else it would give time TO, because everyone on the team is tradeable and can be packaged.

    If you think about it, Parsons has shown that confidence since draft night. Didn't he kind of force the front office to bring him to camp by refusing to play overseas, despite the lockout? It's like he was thinking he wanted to come and show them he was ready to not just make the team, but play an important role, even if nobody else thought that was possible. Kudos to the kid for believing in himself at a level that nobody else did.

    He plays hard, and has some skills. His defense on Durant was pretty solid. I don't see star potential, but he's gonna play in this league for awhile, especially if he can start hitting the long ball with regularity

    His was a +14 on the floor today, by far the best on the team, and he's a good rebounder. He's played sparingly so too early to really trust this, but he's averaging 16 pts and 11 rebounds per 36 mins.


    Attitude wise he's everything I've wanted Budinger to be. If Chase had his attitude he could be a star. Chase is more athletic, has the same length, and is a better shooter, but mindset is everything.

    Hope this shows Twill what you can do with less given talent by working hard, hustle and just focus on defense first. McHale better not go back to Budinger.

    Funny how we trade Shane to make room for Budinger fully well knowing they would let go of Adelman and bring in some1 who's going to focus more on defense.

    That trade of Shane for Thabeet to make room for Bud in hindsight was a big mistake. We could've used Shane off the bench to guard guys like Lebron, Durant etc.

    I really liked how Terrence played last night, despite the low minutes. He looked comfortable.

    I hope Parsons finds a shot. He is one of the worst free throw shooting white guys of all time...

    I've always thought Chase was athletic, but Parson's seems to be more athletic and his length is longer. I think you bring a good point about mindset.

    Battier is one of the best I've seen in terms of concentration all 48 minutes. I am hoping Parson's can develop similarly. I believe he can contribute even more on both ends, but he has to put in the work into his development.

    He's not just a hustle player. He has fundamentally sound basketball instincts, esp. if you compare him to Budinger. He knows how to place himself on the court, where to get shots, where his teammates are, can anticipate his guy on defense, knows basic plays etc. - he just looks like an actual basketball player.

    Agreed. Chandler Parsons is pretty long. He is 3 inches taller, with 3 inches more wingspan and standing reach according to the combine measurements. Going from a 6-7 Chase Budinger to a 6-10 Chandler Parsons is a huge difference.

    If (and this is a big if) he could ever become a sniper from long range, we would have a truly special player. A 6-10 guy that can shoot lights out from 3 and defend and rebound like he does naturally?

    I can't wait to watch the next game.

    (I hope Marcus gets in on this soon...)

    you obviously didn't watch the game. parsons was making durant work for most of his shots and durant was just being durant towards the end of the game

    I want TWill to succeed as much as anyone, but if you watched the Friday night game in OKC, TWill trying to guard Durant was kind of a fail. Parsons did a pretty good job through most of the game Saturday night, and Durant had a pretty quiet game until the fourth quarter because of it.
