@  thejohnnygold : (19 April 2018 - 02:20 PM) This scoop shot right here!
@  thejohnnygold : (19 April 2018 - 03:42 AM) That might be the best scoop shot I've ever seen
@  DenverRocket : (16 April 2018 - 04:08 AM) At least CP3 can only get better! Also, if our 3pt shooting comes back, it won't be close.
@  thejohnnygold : (16 April 2018 - 03:41 AM) Phew!
@  thejohnnygold : (16 April 2018 - 01:57 AM) When did Capela get that Euro-Step?
@  Mario Peña : (08 April 2018 - 05:40 PM) I don’t mind the loss to the Thunder last night. This Rockets team needs to be anticipating teams going for the jugular and Harden and co. need to fight through playoff levels of physical play.
@  rocketrick : (24 March 2018 - 01:43 PM) Walk for a Rocket Championship seems so empty while teenagers are truly and courageously Walking for Their Lives Today.
@  DenverRocket : (23 March 2018 - 05:06 PM) Brandan Wright released apparently
@  thejohnnygold : (22 March 2018 - 02:21 PM) Harden looks unstoppable right now. Really enjoying the way he has matured.
@  slick shoes : (21 March 2018 - 04:05 PM) Great win last night against the Blazers. Was good to see us take a punch in the mouth and stand our ground. A nice long homestand with 3/5 of the teams in tank mode should provide some nice rest for our starting group. Hopefully Ariza and Anderson can find their groove in the mean time as well.
@  slick shoes : (19 March 2018 - 07:12 PM) was hoping we'd have a large enough lead going in to the 4th last night that CP and James would get to rest the last 12 but we took our foot off the gas....
@  thejohnnygold : (18 March 2018 - 12:21 PM) I'm sure they have some plans for rest down the stretch...hopefully.
@  Mario Peña : (17 March 2018 - 08:09 PM) Durant out for two weeks perhaps too, hope James takes the opportunity to rest some himself.
@  slick shoes : (14 March 2018 - 06:05 PM) Curry out for multiple games plus Thompson out for two weeks makes that two game lead just a little more comfortable.
@  Mario Peña : (11 March 2018 - 06:12 PM) That loss hopefully contained lessons for this Rockets team. Teams will take away the three as much as they can in the later rounds of the playoffs.
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:54 PM) Oh Yeah, The winning streak up to 17 now and with a very tough road game on Friday against....
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:53 PM) Addition of Joe Johnson after the Trade Deadline and how that could impact our Team in the Playoffs
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:47 PM) I'm here to read and comment not to write articles
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:46 PM) New ownership
@  rocketrick : (08 March 2018 - 05:46 PM) Our bench

Projecting Chandler's future is always an interesting one. As I mentioned in my preview of the Bulls game, I see Parsons' long term career trajectory being similar to Luol Deng. They are already players with similar skill sets, but I see Deng as just being that little bit more consistent at the moment. Deng is a generally efficient player who is playing in a system that forces him to do things that aren't really his game in the absence of Rose (he's not terrible from the mid-range, but it's definitely not his strength). Hopefully as Parsons matures he'll be able to continue in a system that emphasizes his strengths.

I think that's a very good comparison. (Also speaks volumes considering Deng was the #7 overall pick in the draft.) But I do think Deng is slightly better off the dribble at creating. Chandler can't really create at all unless its off a kickout.

One thing Parsons is not lacking would be confidence. You never hear him complain about how hard it is to guard someone or make excuses. He is a very confident guy and I can see him becoming the "big shot" guy late in games. Most people would pick Harden for that, but the way Parsons was jacking up shots against NY, you could see some real fire. I would run plays for him late in a game without a doubt.

It's interesting that he always plays his best games on the big stage.
