Marc Stein: Mavs coach Rick Carlisle tells me Chandler Parsons (ankle) will miss next three games. Full interview on NBA Insiders on @espnradio (6-8 PM) Twitter @ESPNSteinLine
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
Cuban said he knew Carmelo Anthony wasn’t coming to Dallas after he wouldn’t immediately accept his offer when they met July 2 in his Dallas home. “We felt so confident we signed Chandler [Parsons] before [Anthony] made his final decision,’’ Cuban said. “When you make a decision like that you’re either all in or not. If you have second thoughts, in any business, it’s not good. He had more money from New York. I was like “let’s go, let’s close this thing.’ We didn’t, so chances are it’s not going to happen. But it was a good chance to meet Carmelo. “I was surprised and impressed with his business demeanor. I never talked to him before. I got to know him a little. So it was worth it.’’ New York Post
