HoopsHype Chandler Parsons rumors

November 1, 2013 Updates

What is your favorite album of all time? Chandler Parsons: The Chronic definitely my favorite of all time. I just liked it. There’s a lot of Eminem and I just thought the songs were great. I got [MMLP2] downloaded onto the computer. I can’t wait for it to come out. I’ve always have been a big fan of his. I’ve always been into hip-hop just cause I played, like, travel baseball and AAU basketball. So I always listened to hip-hop before games to get me into the right mind state. I would say probably age 12, maybe 11 [I started listening]. I listened to everything back in the day, like Diddy, DMX, Mystikal, Mobb Deep, everything. XXL Mag

You are the longest tenured Rocket right now. Are you the leader of the team? Chandler Parsons: Yeah, I’m definitely the leader of the team. It’s not going to take one individual, it’s going to be everyone, but as far as every time we get new guys, I’m telling them what spots are around town, where to live. On the court, just knowing the system, I’ve been around coach McHale the longest here so if any questions that these guys have I’m a good resource that’s been that for two years now. XXL Mag

Chandler Parsons was asked if the players had been told who the starters would be and he sounded almost surprised that McHale had not shared that with the media. "I don’t know why it’s a big surprise," Parsons said. “It’s the same as how the preseason ended.” That means Patrick Beverley will not only make his first opening night roster, he'll be making his first opening night start. “I haven’t had the fortune to play in the NBA on opening night,” Beverley said. “It’s going to be my first. I’m definitely excited.” CSN Houston

Current Rockets players Isaiah Canaan and Chandler Parsons along with Ron Harper, a five-time NBA champion, and Clyde Drexler, a member of the original Dream Team that won the gold medal in the 1992 Olympics, conducted a basketball clinic for 100 wide-eyed students of the school. “First of all it’s great to be here. The NBA is always in the community all over the world. And anytime we come it’s always a great feeling,” said Drexler, who won a championship with the Rockets in 1995. “It’s unbelievable. I’ve never seen anything like this,” marveled Parsons, a third-year forward who is expected to have another impactful season this year. Inquirer.net

Chandler Parsons admitted he went out on a dinner date with Philippine actress KC Concepcion on Tuesday night, months after a Twitter exchange that caught the attention of showbiz and sports fans alike. Parsons, a Rockets sophomore who is in the country to play in the NBA preseason game against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday, confirmed he met with Concepcion during an interview with local mediamen during Wednesday’s media availability day at the Mall of Asia Arena. “I did,” said Parsons, when asked by a reporter if he had met Concepcion during the Rockets’ stop in Manila for the NBA Global Games. “We had dinner last night.” Sports Interactive Network Philippines

When asked how they got to know each other, Parsons said he was introduced by a common friend to Concepcion, with whom he hopes to do some work in the future. “We had a mutual friend that put us in contact and hopefully, we can have some work together in the future,” said Parsons.

ESQUIRE.COM: So this is your first Fashion Week. How's it going so far? Chandler Parsons: It is, and it’s going well. It's been fun. I've really gotten into fashion, and ever since I got into the NBA I feel like players are walking billboards. The fans don’t always get to engage with me or get to know me, all they can do is look at me, so I take my style and how I'm perceived very seriously now. And it's cool learning things here at Fashion Week and seeing different styles and different trends. I’ve also been able to meet some designers and go to a few shows. It’s been a great experience. Esquire

ESQ: Do you look to guys like LeBron and Wade for a more professional look? CP: Yeah, I love those guys and I love their style. But they all have stylists. And good for them, but that's almost like a cheat. Having someone going and getting clothes for you that aren't quite out yet and picking outfits and styling them for you and having all your measurements is obviously the easier way to do it. But those guys definitely dress well and their stylists do a great job with them. Esquire
