@  Losthief : (28 February 2015 - 06:31 AM) gutty win by the good guys tonight, big week coming up needed this! The Basketball Jones!
@  jorgeaam : (28 February 2015 - 03:53 AM) T Jones is a beast
@  Dan G : (28 February 2015 - 03:45 AM) Indeed and we got to 40 wins before 20 losses so Phil Jackson would be pleased.

@  thejohnnygold : (27 February 2015 - 04:31 PM) @losthief--I know exactly what it is--my ex-wife is English. How about we just don't cuss in the shoutbox, on the front page of an ESPN affiliated site, when we know it's against the rules? It's in the terms of use and it's not a game. If you need to cuss in your posts every other Rockets' forum allows that and all sorts of other behavior--go there to get it out of your system. The editing I do is a courtesy--the reality is warnings and bans are prescribed for violations. Sorry for the harshness, but I want the point to be clear for everyone.

Also, if you don't think UK English is a different language go over there and spend some time talking to folks--and not the posh ones with the stiff upper lips.
@  Losthief : (27 February 2015 - 01:26 AM) to be clear what i used jg was an english word...but i get you, didn't mean it as a curse word...thats urban slangs fault, its a middle english word.

@  YaoMan : (26 February 2015 - 08:08 PM) @ jorgearm, Prigioni played well in his time on the floor. He could prove very helpful for the stretch run
@  YaoMan : (26 February 2015 - 08:07 PM) @ Incubus, give it time. KJ may see some time later but he's too fresh and needs practice with the team and I am still under the impression that this is a trade asset as well
@  YaoMan : (26 February 2015 - 08:06 PM) Does anyone know the condition of the Harden's ankle?
@  Incubus2803 : (26 February 2015 - 06:57 PM) Kj McDaniels was never going to play for this team. Morey saw someone that was shining (presumably) in his defensive metrics, with athleticism bubbling out of him, and trusted that we could teach him to shoot. Remember the part about Smoove not leaving the gym till he sank 200 3s? Yea...
@  thejohnnygold : (26 February 2015 - 05:36 PM) Cursing in another language is still cursing. Sorry. By the way, this is not a game--let's not start that, please.
@  Losthief : (26 February 2015 - 06:08 AM) i kno...my heart can't take the *looks thru thesaurus* agony and the ecstasy of it all (does that work jg?)
@  cointurtlemoose : (26 February 2015 - 03:26 AM) Harden's gotta stop scaring me by having these close calls......
@  jorgeaam : (26 February 2015 - 03:09 AM) I'm still wondering where KJ McDaniels is at
@  jorgeaam : (26 February 2015 - 03:03 AM) Well, it seems Prigioni actually enjoys playing with a real team for a change.
@  jorgeaam : (26 February 2015 - 03:02 AM) Same question I get when I see Tyson Chandler and Dallas
@  Sir Thursday : (26 February 2015 - 02:19 AM) So the question is: why don't the Clippers just throw an alley-oop to Jordan every time? The Rockets only seem to be able to stop it about one time in three...
@  Cooper : (26 February 2015 - 01:58 AM) crawford going off and harden doing nothing. Surprised they're still in the game
@  jorgeaam : (26 February 2015 - 01:43 AM) T Jones hustling

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.
