@  slick shoes : (23 November 2015 - 07:15 PM) I think that is the worst part about our season thus far. We fired a guy who had little to do with the problem instead of addressing the real issue of team chemistry which is becoming more and more apparent. I don't think anyone is on the same page as anyone else.
@  cointurtlemoose : (21 November 2015 - 06:39 AM) McHale might not have been a great coach, but he definitely was NOT the problem with this team...
@  majik19 : (21 November 2015 - 02:31 AM) our team is just embarassing
@  cointurtlemoose : (19 November 2015 - 07:11 AM) That was the most Corey Brewer thing I have ever seen
@  majik19 : (19 November 2015 - 04:20 AM) how the hell did that happen? maybe just switching from McHale to JB will change our bad luck...
@  Willk : (19 November 2015 - 03:58 AM) in my face
@  bboley24 : (19 November 2015 - 03:55 AM) So that just happened
@  Cooper : (19 November 2015 - 03:53 AM) got the win
@  Willk : (19 November 2015 - 02:06 AM) fire McHale! playing like crap again
@  SadLakerFan : (18 November 2015 - 06:21 PM) It's unfair, but it's the right move because it's the only move major move they had available to them. But, it seems just a tad premature - I wonder what was really said in the player meeting.
@  majik19 : (18 November 2015 - 06:03 PM) So much for building off continuity now that the core is in place... It's probably about time for another "Morey's Plan" article from Rahat.
@  txtdo1411 : (18 November 2015 - 05:26 PM) No problem. He definitely made it clear that changes will continue to be made until we are winning again.
@  cointurtlemoose : (18 November 2015 - 05:19 PM) Thanks for the link, txtdo; good words from Morey, I thought
@  cointurtlemoose : (18 November 2015 - 05:14 PM) Wow, I expected this 6 or 7 games from now if things didn't change... This seems a tad early. And they better have a replacement actually in mind and ready to hire, otherwise this seems like a misguided move
@  txtdo1411 : (18 November 2015 - 05:13 PM) Its going on right now.
@  txtdo1411 : (18 November 2015 - 05:13 PM) http://api.viglink.c...9&title=Rockets Press Conference 11am - ClutchFans&txt=http://www.khou.com/videos/news/loca...7/29/12651418/
@  slick shoes : (18 November 2015 - 05:12 PM) Anyone know where to listen in to the DM press conference?
@  DenverRocket : (18 November 2015 - 04:50 PM) Shocked too, but then again not. Something had to give. I can't see JB being given the reins f/t. Surely they have a contingency? Thibs?
@  txtdo1411 : (18 November 2015 - 04:48 PM) I wonder if the plan is to find a replacement fairly quickly, or to give JB a shot. I'm trying to understand how things would change, since JB has been in the locker room all year. The players are going to give him effort now just because McHale is gone?
@  majik19 : (18 November 2015 - 04:22 PM) just shocked. I feel like this is now a lost season. We were struggling under McHale, but do we really think J.B. can lead us to a championship?

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.
