@  Cooper : (25 October 2014 - 01:35 PM) Good thing they wasted their first round pick on a guy they sent directly to the dleague.
@  feelingsuper... : (25 October 2014 - 11:14 AM) The Thunder have lost Morrow for about a month and a half. They will be digging themselves out of a hole most of the season.
@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 06:04 AM) I'm a little hyped right now, holding myself back from going full retard.
@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 06:03 AM) Call me crazy but I think if Rockets get the Thunder in the 1st round, then the Spurs in the 2nd, that would be more ideal than any road to the finals where Terrence Jones will be guarding the likes of Blake Griffin, Aldridge, Lee, Dirk, Zbo ect.
@  2016Champions : (25 October 2014 - 05:59 AM) Jeremy who? Lol
@  thejohnnygold : (25 October 2014 - 02:25 AM) That was definitely an awesome way to finish the game
@  Willk : (25 October 2014 - 02:22 AM) im on the canaan bandwagon
@  Losthief : (25 October 2014 - 12:43 AM) Keep Gettin Them CHecks All-Star!
@  Buckko : (24 October 2014 - 03:57 AM) That's an understatement Cooper.
@  rockets best... : (24 October 2014 - 01:16 AM) Nash should have quit 4 years ago
@  Cooper : (24 October 2014 - 01:15 AM) suns really sold high on him.
@  Willk : (24 October 2014 - 12:03 AM) sad to see nash's career end like this
@  cointurtlemoose : (23 October 2014 - 07:16 PM) Philly "doing it right" is a catch-22 when doing it right is completely sacrificing competitiveness for almost entire seasons. I see what you're saying, and it's not Philly's fault.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 05:59 PM) I need more to go on to write something up. Just brainstorming right now. Monroe is more of a defensive plus at the 4 than the 5; I think the reason he played the 5 early on his because he couldn't shoot--no longer the case.
@  08huangj : (23 October 2014 - 12:28 PM) He just doesn't seem like a four to me, he started his career as a center. I also don't think that he'd be happy to be a backup and what does a very reasonable price mean. Maybe you can create a thread.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 10:14 AM) Monroe would not only improve our starting 4 spot but also serve as a backup center.
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 10:12 AM) Should we go after Greg Monroe? He seems to have improved his midrange shot, and considering the likelihood he walks, we might be able to acquire him for a very reasonable price.
@  Buckko : (23 October 2014 - 04:31 AM) I have no problem with philly tanking. If you're gonna do something, do it right. They should be an extremely entertaining team in a few years.
@  Willk : (23 October 2014 - 01:23 AM) 2016 - I agree. I would rather see Canaan play than Ish
@  2016Champions : (23 October 2014 - 01:19 AM) Isaiah Canaan seems to get better with every game.

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.
