@  txtdo1411 : (31 July 2014 - 07:02 PM) If you all haven't watched the video of PG, KD, and Harden taking turns going one on one... Check it out. It is definitely entertaining and shows Harden at least taking pride in stopping KD.
@  slick shoes : (31 July 2014 - 06:04 PM) Rockets v Mavericks preseason opener October 7th. Let the countdown begin.
@  jorgeaam : (31 July 2014 - 03:25 AM) So it seems Kevin Love to the Cavs is a when not an if, things just got better in the east
@  bboley24 : (25 July 2014 - 02:32 AM) D League or not... he's here and he's working out with the best... it's good for all around... Sergio.
@  Buckko : (25 July 2014 - 12:16 AM) Well shots fired between harden and parsons.
@  majik19 : (24 July 2014 - 09:09 PM) He'll spend likely the whole season with the D-league team. He's 4th on the depth chart, at best.
@  txtdo1411 : (24 July 2014 - 03:51 PM) I like it as well YaoMan. You can't ever have enough long and athletic big men. It will be nice to see how he develops.
@  YaoMan : (24 July 2014 - 03:40 PM) Rockets sign Clint Capela and has been added to their regular season roster - I like this. He's got a high ceiling...
@  slick shoes : (22 July 2014 - 03:11 AM) live by the three, die by the three.
@  feelingsuper... : (22 July 2014 - 02:54 AM) 21% on three pointers by Canaan and company, damn.
@  feelingsuper... : (22 July 2014 - 02:51 AM) Rockets Summer Leaguers shot 32%, rough ending.
@  Buckko : (20 July 2014 - 07:01 PM) I refer to the writers, as yall due to the multiple of them. We are the loyal readers. I should've word it better.
@  rockets best... : (20 July 2014 - 06:12 PM) we and y'all are the same people :lol:
@  bboley24 : (20 July 2014 - 12:32 PM) who is we and who is yall?
@  Buckko : (20 July 2014 - 08:21 AM) Can we get a post about defensive improvement or yall waiting until the defensive assistant gets chosen?
@  Buckko : (20 July 2014 - 07:37 AM) With internal improvement, the defensive minded FA acquisitions, and hopefully a good Defensive minded assistant. The rockets will be closer to a top 5 D than top 10.
@  miketheodio : (20 July 2014 - 05:55 AM) i wonder how much better the starting 5 will be with a wing who actually plays defense
@  rockets best... : (18 July 2014 - 09:26 PM) Kendall Marshall is Ish Smith of a few years ago
@  Cooper : (18 July 2014 - 07:33 PM) Lakers waived Kendall Marshall, hes decent.
@  YaoMan : (18 July 2014 - 07:10 PM) @ slick shoes - And I'm bringing muzzles for them ladies in case they feel the need to start!

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.
