    I would be very intrigued by a lineup of
    Bev
    Harden
    Ariza
    Parsons
    Dwight

    With DMo being the first big off the bench if he regains form

    DD approves of cans that can be kicked. In this case, Parsons.

    Hypothetically, he could start...

    Bev
    Harden
    Parsons
    Durant
    IDK

    Again, this is infinitely hypothetical.

    He will get paid,

    Batum will have multiple teams offering him the max and he is also an injury prone.

    The only thing he is skilled at is over working Keith Jones with his injured ass.

    So basically this is your dream team lineup for the Rockets?

    Dellavedova - PG
    JJ Redick - SG
    Parsons - SF
    DMO - PF
    Bogut - C

    Backup
    Josh McRoberts, Tyler Hansbrough, Nick Collison, Kyle Korver, Ryan Anderson, Chris Anderson, Chase Budinger, Goran Dragic

    Parsons has really exceeded my expectations and I think he's actually worth that huge contract now. I would love the for the Rockets to get him.

    He's been balling out of his mind since mid-December. Since then, he has averaged

    16.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.18 assists, with only 1.7 turnovers per game in 32min per game. His shooting is exceptional too with 51.2% fg and 44.4% 3pt with 4.5 3pter attempts a game. If you look at his stats since mid-January, it's even better.

    Think about how much better the Rockets offense looks when Ariza is hitting his shots. Ariza is only hitting 41.4% / 37.4 % on his fg and 3s. Parsons can drive better, shoot better, distribute better than Ariza, and is younger.

    If the Rockets strikes out on Durant, I wouldn't mind signing Parsons for his max (22mil) then trade Ariza for future picks or other assets. Ariza definitely has positive trade value due to his relatively low dollar contract.

    I'd take him at his current contract but any more I feel like is risky and maybe dumb? Not sure but damn that team was fun to watch, maybe we could recreate that magic with batum?

    If he is somehow a key to a championship I'll work the shaft.

    I'd be happy to have him back, but not for silly money. He's a much better shooter than the majority of our current squad.

    If he's learned to play defense under Carlisle I wouldn't mind him back. As much as I love Ariza his offense is such a liability.

    Hood hopping ass trick. That stupid smirk on both Cuban and Parsons' face when he signed the midnight deal still burns me to the core.

    F U Chandler Parsons, and F your little snippy tweeting brother.

    Not just a majority of the Rockets squad, almost all. If you look at Parson's stats since Mid-December when his minute restriction was lifted, he would be the best 3pt shooter on the Rockets by a large margin (44.4% for Parson vs Bev's 40%), better FG% than everyone except Dwight and Capela, better TS% (61.9%) than everyone except Harrell.

    That team would give up 140 points a game.

    Harden and Parsons defensively.... coupled with an aging Beverly and Dwight?

    Well...... lets just say it would be the most frustrating team in the NBA to watch in 20 years.

    Can you imagine Harden's lack of effort, coupled with Parsons complete lack of defensive instincts, with Beverley's lack of lateral quickness... coupled with a slowing down Howard that no longer comes over on screens?

    SWEET JESUS
