@  majik19 : (05 May 2015 - 02:01 AM) it would be really nice if we could stop the dumb turnovers.
@  majik19 : (05 May 2015 - 01:45 AM) um Jason Terry just blew by Austin Rivers.
@  majik19 : (05 May 2015 - 01:42 AM) I can't believe our PG rotation is actually better than theirs today.
@  JY86er : (05 May 2015 - 12:48 AM) I dont care if they have The Monstars on their bench. Fear no one. If you have no fear--you can't lose.
@  jorgeaam : (05 May 2015 - 12:19 AM) Unless Austin Rivers, Glen Davis, Turkoglu and Spencer Hawes scare you a lot lol
@  jorgeaam : (05 May 2015 - 12:17 AM) So their bench just got screwed if Jamal Crawford starts
@  08huangj : (05 May 2015 - 12:14 AM) Chris Paul out of tonight's game...
@  YaoMan : (04 May 2015 - 09:10 PM) No respect for the Rockets...https://twitter.com/ArashMarkazi/status/595322877877948418/photo/1
@  Incubus2803 : (04 May 2015 - 10:57 AM) for big defensive possessions, i see it lining up: CP3-Brewer, Redick-Ariza, Barnes-Harden, Blake-Smith, DeAndre-Howard. Then switch everything.
@  SadLakerFan : (04 May 2015 - 07:52 AM) Not sure if JT can stay close to Redick or Crawford either. He was rock solid in 2011 but that was a long time ago.
@  jorgeaam : (04 May 2015 - 02:01 AM) So Curry is the MVP, now I just hope the Rockets and Warriors meet in the playoffs and Harden shows the world who really deserved it
@  Cooper : (03 May 2015 - 05:12 PM) Id actually rather paul play game 1 and be gimpy all series than miss a game and get it treated.
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 May 2015 - 06:28 AM) Oh gosh yall, this is gonna be freakin feisty. Someone might punch Barnes
@  cointurtlemoose : (03 May 2015 - 06:27 AM) I bet Paul will play. And yaaayyy, hack-a-player amnesty probably??
@  Incubus2803 : (03 May 2015 - 06:19 AM) He's just saying that bc it'll make Paul look tough when he does. No one talks up his guys more than Doc.
@  jorgeaam : (03 May 2015 - 03:53 AM) Doc said if he has to guess, Chris Paul will not play in Game 1 against Houston.
@  jorgeaam : (03 May 2015 - 03:21 AM) Well, no Hack-A-Shaq for next round should make for an entertaining series
@  Drew in Abilene : (03 May 2015 - 03:17 AM) What a game... That was highly entertaining. Looking forward to the next round.
@  08huangj : (03 May 2015 - 02:51 AM) So the Clippers win off a Chris Paul off balance shot.
@  thejohnnygold : (02 May 2015 - 11:09 PM) I'll be watching.

Here's the link http://bleacherrepor...-and-team-chuck

So, I was just wondering what everybody's thoughts were on the subject. I'm not as high on Parsons as some, but I think he was taken too low. I would have picked him over Klay, Bradley, Barnes and Rubio based on this season's performance and just overall skill level(right now, not potential). I think it's an interesting debate topic since there are differing opinions on Parsons.

Player / PPG / RBG / APG / BPG / SPG / FG% / PER
Klay / 16.5 / 4.0 / 2.4 / 0.5 / 0.9 / 42.1% / 13.60
Bradley / 13.2 / 3.3 / 2.5 / 0.5 / 0.9 / 38.1% / 12.54
Barnes / 9.4 / 1.2 / 1.5 / 0.2 / 0.7 / 45.3% / 12.05
Rubio / 6.1 / 2.2 / 6.0 / 0.0 / 1.7 / 31.1% / 11.29
And then Parsons
Parsons / 14.4 / 5.7 / 3.6 / 0.3 / 1.1 / 47.4% / 14.84

All of these stats came from ESPN.com. They make a pretty compelling case for Parsons, at least so far in their careers.

I think some of those players were picked above Parsons because Barkley was desparately casting around for backcourt players after missing out on both Lillard and Irving. He already had Leonard, who fills a similar niche, so went with Beal and Rubio ahead of him.

I suppose you can make an argument that Parsons is better than Thompson and Barnes at this point (although I would strongly advise against using per-game numbers when analyzing these guys - remember that Parsons plays a lot more minutes than the other two, which inflates his stats quite a bit). But Thompson is generally considered more consistent from the outside (don't have an number in front of me to look that up), and in an open game I expect Barnes to be able to pull of some pretty explosive moves to the hole. So I can understand why they went ahead of him.

Actually, it feels a bit wasteful for Shaq to have taken all three of these guys - he's ended up with basically no front court depth as a result. Drummond/Zeller are his only big men, while Barkley can put out Davis/Faried/Thompson/Vucevic. Suspect that means Parsons will be playing a bit of PF (I guess Kidd-Gilchrist could do it as well). While at first glance it appears that Shaq got a steal with his PG combo, I have a feeling the big men will keep team Chuck hanging around.

Hard to say much. I would say in 3-4 years we'll know who's who from this list. Parsons has had a trial by fire and, in my eyes, has passed every test. I think he still has room to improve another 20-25% over his current performances. That is a nice all around player to have. Those other guys will undoubtedly produce some stars and solid players. I am happy with having Parsons--a good glue/chemistry guy that can co-exist and play with anybody and any style. It will be a shame if we lose him at the end of his contract as I think more than a few teams will be interested in his services.

When parsons is on the floor the rockets are better as a team. Whatever his individual metrics are--that is the one I like the most.
