@  thejohnnygold : (18 February 2018 - 04:11 AM) Yeah, I have thought the same thing. Everything is going so well there isn't much up for debate.
@  slick shoes : (16 February 2018 - 07:34 PM) As stated before, if you are unhappy with the amount of activity here, you are more than welcome to contribute something yourself. I think many of us are so pleased with the way the season has played out thus far that we don't need to come here to complain or moan or advocate for this trade or signing.
@  rocketrick : (16 February 2018 - 05:20 PM) Wow, so many good stories but 0 articles this season regarding the Rockets on this site.
@  slick shoes : (13 February 2018 - 06:49 PM) Nvm, we are waiving Troy Williams to make room for Joe Johnson.
@  slick shoes : (13 February 2018 - 01:42 AM) I guess that takes us out of the running for Iso Joe?
@  DenverRocket : (10 February 2018 - 02:25 AM) Apparently we're picking up Brandan Wright, who was bought out by the Grizzlies today.
@  Mario Peña : (09 February 2018 - 11:17 AM) That was crazy.
@  slick shoes : (08 February 2018 - 06:45 PM) Wow. What are the Cavs doing???
@  DenverRocket : (05 February 2018 - 11:37 PM) Even Love seems happy to be injured and out of there for a while, based on his recent comments. It's a complete sh!t show!
@  Mario Peña : (05 February 2018 - 07:59 PM) I have friends who are Cavs fans and obviously most of them aren’t interested in burning jerseys. Considering I have was there to see a good game even I was disappointed in the lack of effort. I don’t see how the Cold War between LeBron and Gilbert gets any better.
@  DenverRocket : (05 February 2018 - 06:36 AM) I thought it was hilarious.Don't feel sorry for those clowns, they'll be burning his shirt again come free agency :)
@  Mario Peña : (04 February 2018 - 02:12 PM) I was at that Rockets game last night guys and that Cavs defense wasn’t even professional. I saw a lot of jogging up and down the court. I almost felt bad for Cavs fans.
@  slick shoes : (04 February 2018 - 07:33 AM) Just read that he is also unhappy with his role in Minny. If it was me, I would take the same money for the same role on a championship caliber team vs an up an coming team. Just one man's opinion.
@  DenverRocket : (04 February 2018 - 12:03 AM) Why would they release him? I heard that Shabazz Muhamad has asked out, but nothing about Crawford (his minutes are not going to be much different/better if he comes to us)
@  slick shoes : (03 February 2018 - 11:59 PM) Would be interested to see if we take a look at Jamal Crawford if released by Minnesota. Great extra tool to have for the stretch run. I imagine him winning us a game with a clutch three as well.
@  DenverRocket : (02 February 2018 - 06:31 PM) @RocketRick why don't you write one and submit it for publication? Plenty to write about.
@  rocketrick : (02 February 2018 - 04:36 PM) Our Rockets really do have a chance this year...........and this site is like dead in the water. Last published article was back in November. Good Luck with that........
@  thejohnnygold : (02 February 2018 - 05:12 AM) Yes, I was advocating a Harden trade...I'll admit I was wrong...to a degree. It was based on the premise that he wasn't committed to defense--which he wasn't--and that he needed another player to be the lead dog (such as Chris Paul which I did advocate before Morey brought him in). So, yeah...I was completely wrong...but a little right ;)
@  Mario Peña : (01 February 2018 - 10:00 PM) Oh that’s right I vaguely remember that. I was distracted by my move from Texas to New York around that time and I disagreed so I remember not paying those threads much attention.
@  DenverRocket : (01 February 2018 - 06:48 PM) I'm pretty sure JG was advocating a full rebuild ;-)

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.
