    Parsons shot is really nice, when he's not fading back on it.

    I hope he's getting paid a little extra on the side for these.

    "Y'all with MTV?"

    Parsons doesn't even come off as a ball player to people anymore. You've changed, bro.

    I like how those moms didn't even know who he was and asked him what he does
    Chandler: Oh, I play basketball
    Lady: Where do you play?
    Chandler: Houston Rockets
    Lady: Oh nice

    very casual conversation, no big deal.

    "Chandler Parsons!? CHANDLER PARSONS??!! I'm playing him 1 on 1! THE Gorgeous! The Gorgeous! 1 on 1!"

    I'm all for "The Gorgeous" being Chandler's new nick name.

    Great vids~ but I just can't get out of my head the idea that that little kid at the park... may be like a quarter of the posters here. The ones screaming and hating using faulty (immature) logic to label and judge like many dumb kids do. Anyways, love Chandler. Hope he does great this year.

    Its amazing how chandler parsons, a player that was overlooked and drafted in the second round and still has a long way to go was his high school's MVP and state champion.

    He was also a great player for florida. Shows how much talent NBA guys have, you can be the best player in your town/city/state and still may not even make a summer league roster. It really puts things in perspective.

    According to ESPN's David Thorpe, a Florida-based basketball training guru, Parsons was not the best player on his high school team.

    Wasn't sure either but just looked it up and it's Nick Calathes. I remember the guy was supposed to be pretty good. He's a 6'6" PG.
