@  King's G... : (03 March 2015 - 06:06 PM) a game without harden - an exciting game... as much as i like harden its kinda boring and predictable that rockets are focusing too much on him... in recent years we did pretty well without harden
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 March 2015 - 05:26 PM) IMO, our chances of a win are prettyyy slim
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 March 2015 - 05:25 PM) Corey Brewer goes for 51...
@  majik19 : (03 March 2015 - 04:47 PM) So just wondering... any way we win tonight? I think the only way is either a) Atlanta rests everyone, thinking it's a gimme or B) we shoot lights out from 3. any other options?
@  thejohnnygold : (03 March 2015 - 03:30 PM) Because they are in the Eastern Conference and not 1.5 games ahead of us in the WC standings like Memphis.
@  YaoMan : (03 March 2015 - 03:22 PM) Why are we overlooking Atlanta? They are a tough, tough team and can easily blow out the Rox w/o Harden.
@  King's G... : (03 March 2015 - 07:46 AM) Whiteside was better than Dwight yet he played less minutes ...how much you play sometimes has nothing to do with how good you are but what is your image , which manager you have etc. obviously there are many coaches better than mcgee of coaches yet hes coaching now
@  Mario Peña : (03 March 2015 - 05:22 AM) I like that James will be fresh for Memphis which is more important than Atlanta.
@  Cooper : (03 March 2015 - 02:41 AM) because bev isn't a star
@  majik19 : (03 March 2015 - 01:41 AM) i can't believe they suspended Harden but didn't even fine LeBron for purposely pushing Beverly back to the ground.
@  08huangj : (03 March 2015 - 01:25 AM) The rockets are 8-0 when Terrence Jones starts a match
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 01:15 AM) But anyways, KGA is probably enjoying the trolling enough, so I shall stop here
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 01:14 AM) I watch Shaqtin a Fool just to hear Shaq say "My Boy Javale Mcgeee" every single week
@  thejohnnygold : (03 March 2015 - 01:05 AM) There were so many youtube videos of Javale "playing within himself" I couldn't pick one. If anyone feels like laughing just search his name. He is also a two-time winner of the Shaqtin A Fool MVP Award. I think he also holds the record for most plays that caused a coach to shake his head in disbelief.
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 March 2015 - 01:04 AM) GIVE KJ THE KEYS
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 March 2015 - 01:04 AM) I actually don't hate the Harden suspension. I'd almost rather have him rested for Memphis.
@  jorgeaam : (03 March 2015 - 12:57 AM) Yes, obviously McGee is better than Howard guys, Josh Howard, that is.
@  thejohnnygold : (03 March 2015 - 12:52 AM) good excuse to rest him a bit
@  rocketrick : (03 March 2015 - 12:10 AM) Unsurprisingly to me, James Harden was just suspended 1 game for the faux kick to LeBron's groin area in yesterday's game
@  rocketrick : (03 March 2015 - 12:09 AM) Really? If Javale is "better than Howard" how come Javale barely played this season, total of only 250 minutes, on 2 bad teams?

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.
