“There’s an emphasis now on trying to minimize the discomfort and some of the rigors that go with an 82 games season. And that wasn’t the case 20-some odd years ago. It was a badge of honor,” he said. “You tape it up and play. Now there’s more of an awareness, a feeling of it’s in the best interest of everyone. So that mindset that thought process is very prevalent in the NBA and it may have not been that way when I first came to the NBA in 1994 so I think it does speak to the evolution and understanding the rigors – the season’s a marathon and it’s important for everyone to manage the ups and downs of the marathon.”
“I was a fan once. I still am a fan,” he said. “When I grew up in Orlando every time Grant Hill got hurt I got so ticked. ‘This guy is soft. He doesn’t care. He makes too much money to be getting hurt.’ And now that I’m in his shoes, I just want to call him and say, ‘Hey man, my bad.’” In other words, Parsons gets it. He was as frustrated with Hill as some Grizzlies fans have been with him.
