Chandler Parsons: 'Kobe Bryant paid me a $22,000 club bill... this dude was cool as f---'

Chandler Parsons story on Kobe Bryant:  So my rookie year we’re playing in Staples Center. Kevin McHale pulls me aside and tells me ‘you’re gonna see crazy people, you’re gonna see celebrities there and Kobe is gonna try and bust your ass, like he’s gonna be offended you’re guarding him.’ First of all, I’m just looking at the court side. My head’s on a swivel, I’ve never seen this before, right? I’m like, goddamn, this is great. Denzel Washington is there, this chick is there… I’m already distracted. And of course I’m starting on Kobe. A little side note: Jordan Hill that year had got traded from Houston to LA. So the fourth quarter comes around and Kobe looks at me and he’s like, ‘are you guys staying the night tonight?’ And I’m like, making sure McHale is not looking at me and I’m like ‘yeah, what up? We’re staying.’ He goes, ‘I’ll set you up. I’ll get your number from Hill if you want to go out tonight’. McHale is over there grilling me like ‘stop talking to this motherf—–’. So he ends up going off, he scores like 40 that game and we lose. After the game we’re going to have dinner at the Katsuya LA Live. We’re with all the OGs, right? We’re with Marcus Camby and they’re all taking me out. I get a text that goes ‘You’re all set at Supper Club – Mamba’. And I’m like, looking around like ‘alright, who’s f—— with me?’ Like, no way. Courtney Lee was my guy and I’m like, showing him like, is this real? So I write him back. I’m like, are you coming? And he’s like ‘no, I can’t make it but my guy will hit you up’. Guy texts me ‘Hey, you’re set up, let me know what you need at Supper Club’, whatever.
Chandler Parsons: So at this point, I’m like, guys, I got you. Kobe’s my guy. He set it up. Let’s go! JB Bickerstaff is there. I’m bringing coaches. I’m bringing trainers. This is ‘I got it’. And we have a blast, right? We have the craziest night ever. Supper Club was the club where the tables were beds. It was awesome. It was nuts. Then 2 AM rolls around. I’m with these guys that made hundreds of millions of dollars and this waitress beelines right to me with the check. And I’m like, ‘oh shit!’… She’s bringing me this bill for God knows how much and I’m like, oh man. I open it and it’s like $22,000 and now at this point I’m like, physically sick. I can’t do this because the card’s gonna bounce! I’ll never forget it, this chick looks at me, hands me a pen and says ‘sign for Mr. Bryant’. And I’m like, what?! A made a video of the whole thing, I’m so excited. I signed ‘Kobe Bryant’ on a $22,000 club bill… This dude was cool as f—.

Darryl Matthew Cohen had been part of the Global Sports Entertainment Group at Morgan Stanley, the division that caters to athletes and entertainers, according to the law firm Erez Law, which is investigating Cohen. According to public records cited by the law firm, two former National Basketball Association players, Chandler Parsons and Courtney Lee, are suing Morgan Stanley over allegations that payments were made without the approval from their accounts between 2017 and 2019. The athletes — who are seeking $5 million in damages — alleged that they were encouraged, presumably by Cohen, to get a liquidity access line of credit for real estate and life insurance policies, Erez Law says.
The home drew a purchase price 17% higher than it originally cost, as Fournier and his wife Laura Kebe bought the home for $2.3 million in 2016. Of course, the median home price in Central Florida’s hot housing market shot up 55% from July 2016 to July 2021, according to the Orlando Regional Realtor Association. This is the second Central Florida home Fournier sold since January. In February, he sold a 6,384-square-foot Winter Park home to fellow NBA player Courtney Lee for $3.05 million.
