Parsons, who has a $1 million per year endorsement deal with the Chinese shoe company Anta, wore Jordan Brand sneakers with the logos covered during the Mavs' 100-93 win over the Los Angeles Lakers because of concerns that his shoes contributed to the sprain and bone bruise to his left ankle. "I just am trying to figure out if it was one of the shoes that I was wearing that bothered me," Parsons told ESPNDallas.com. "I just wanted to fix them and make them stiffer. ESPN.com

"For the past over one year's cooperation between Anta and Chandler, both parties have been working together closely to make products satisfied by Chandler," Anta overseas sports marketing manager Shawn Liu said in a text message. "According to Chandler's new situation, we already started making adjustment to the CP1 shoes, to make sure the products are exactly according to [the] player's need and request. We believe Chandler will be back in CP1 shoes very soon. Under all circumstances, Anta's No.1 priority is to satisfy players' needs, this is what keeps motivating Anta to grow and improve." ESPN.com

A sampling of how the Mavs plan to spend their All-Star breaks: J.J. Barea: “Puerto Ricoooooooooo!!! I got my son’s birthday in Puerto Rico. The beach and the pool. It should be a good weekend. My high school also has a big tournament that they named after me.” Chandler Parsons: “New York until Saturday and then I’m going to Mexico. Sun and the beach. Cabo.” Monta Ellis: “I’m going to be here in Dallas. Man, you know, you’ve been doing these 10 years, they don’t need me spending no money right now. I’ll keep that lil’ ol’ money and sit at the house. I’ll travel in the summertime. “ ESPN.com

So what does Dirk Nowitzki think of the fashion sense of Parsons, who has had a few modeling gigs over the last couple years. "We think he dresses like Justin Bieber," Nowitzki said. "So if you're into that kind of stuff, then you can vote for him. If you like some grown-man stuff, some slacks and button-downs, then I got him beat." Asked if some of the jeans - which no doubt cost an arm and a leg - that Parsons wears are the worst part of his wardrobe, Nowitzki said: "Sometimes, I don't think the jeans are the worst. The sweaters he wears that are almost down to his knees - female pajamas, I call them - that's the worst look, his sweaters. His shoe game is OK. Sometimes, it's too over the top for me. But, like I said, these young boys these days, the flashier, the better." Dallas Morning News

If Chandler Parsons had a midseason MVP vote, it would go to former teammate James Harden. "For sure. He's the best player in basketball right now," Parsons said before his Dallas Mavericks fell 99-94 to Harden's Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. "The things he's doing are incredible. The scouting report is focused in on stopping him and you see he's still getting 30 a game. It's impressive." ESPN.com
