Good news, guys (unless you're a fan of NBA players beefing!): Chandler Parsons and James Harden do not hate each other anymore.
Last week, Parsons got upset with his former Rockets teammate after Harden did an interview with The Philippine Star and essentially said that he didn't think the loss of Parsons would be a big deal for Houston next season.
"Dwight [Howard] and I are the cornerstones of the Rockets," Harden said. "The rest of the guys are role players or pieces that complete our team. We've lost some pieces and added some pieces."
Was it a direct shot at Parsons? No. But shortly after that quote came out, Parsons appeared on the Jay Mohr Sports Show and said that he didn't appreciate Harden's comments.
"That's a pretty ridiculous statement if he meant that," he said.
He also sent out this tweet that appeared to be aimed at Harden:
But now, it seems that Parsons and Harden are back on the same page and aren't throwing shots at one another anymore. They've both been in Las Vegas for Team USA workouts this week. And they've had time to patch things up between them.
"We've been in the casinos together and everything," Parsons told Comcast SportsNet. "We talked about it and it's in the past. We've been hanging out, talking. We played on the same team a few times here, which was cool to get back out there with him. There are no hard feelings."
Harden feels the same way.
"There was never really any back and forth," he said. "I never said anything about Chandler…I was just talking about my teammates…The media, I guess, took another story and ran with it. Chandler and me are cool. We're good."
So there you go, guys. No beef here. Sorry!
