He's going on a trip lol. 

 

Some of you talking like he was caught drunk driving, being reckless in public or fighting people on the street. 

Those are acceptable behaviors for many NBA fans.  Taking a vacation is not.

Some of you that think I'm reaching obviously didn't read Calkins' Article in the Commercial Appeal. It details how Parsons seems to enjoy flaunting his wealth in spite of sub par performance thus far on the court. It also talks about how he responded to the CJ MaCullum earlier this year by saying he "Literally hit the lottery", referencing his max contract.

 

I pointed out the vaca not because I don't think he should take it, nor do I think he is wrong for accepting every penny the Grizz offered him (I put that on the Grizz). I do think he needs to walk more humbly, because flaunting unearned money is assign of general meat headedness and arrogant snot-ness.

It is Calkins job and Gary Parish and John Martin to talk about ****. Just because they think it, doesn't necessarily make it true.

Imo, the whole team needs to spend some practice time in the gym during this lay off time. They look like they need to work on getting better. They have this summer to take a vacation.. Starting in late Feb. game results will determine play-off seeding. With the team healthy now the players need to communicate and mesh together in order to be a more cohesive basketball team.

It's one thing to say this isn't worth getting upset about, but are you all really happy about this?  This doesn't grate on anybody's nerves around here?

 

I'm all for the young man enjoying his wealth, but Calkins calling him tone deaf in this situation is pretty spot on.  Dude is getting into twitter wars and showing his jet in his pics.  Meanwhile, Z-bo just paid some MLGW bills for the umpteenth time.  

 

One shows gratitude.  The other doesn't.  One shows a desire to connect with the fan base. The other does not.  But everybody here is taking the position that the boy got paid, so he should be making it rain - ***** - on your heads - while you say "aaaahhhhh".

I'm glad Chandler is headed to Cancun. Maybe he can figure out how to shoot a ball into the ocean without missing there.

He can do what he wants with his free time. It's the mid-season break, most players do that.

I do think it's alarming how unbothered he seems to be with his struggles this season....but oh well.

This is a pretty tough call for me.

 

On the one hand, he has a week off, and he has the right to do whatever he wishes to do with his time and money. On the other hand, he's producing below average results on the court, and his team will be making a playoff run in 2 months time.

 

When the season is over, do whatever you want. But the fact that this is so well publicized and well known to everyone is the issue for me. Like when the Giants receivers went to Miami. Do what you want, whatever. But what are you doing snapchatting and taking instagram pictures on a boat without shirts on? Knowing it would create a distraction for your team.

 

For Parsons, this just isn't the best image that he could portray to concerned Grizzlies fans. And now you've got Calkins coming off the top rope on you. One could argue his judgment in this situation is questionable.

 

Again, It's his time and money and he can do what he wants. However, I'd prefer him working on his game and conditioning, and I would hope that he would feel it important enough to prioritize that over a trip that he could take when the season ends.

Im sure half of the team is on vacation right now and how do you know he isn't rehabbing the knee while he's in Chancun?

 

Social Media is obviously a huge thing these days so of course players are going to post picture of their vacation. Again this is just silly and reeks of envy.

I'd imagine he'll be getting some shots up while on vacation.

This!

He is posting vids of working out. How would you like it if your employer told you vacation is cancelled because you missed time for surgery and you could only partly contribute as you healed up,

Lol, he's rehabbing his knee while getting spit glitter on his chest from a random skank.
Dude has insatiable appetite for pole dipping.
