What was your opinion on Chandler Parsons parting from Houston and joining in-state rival Dallas? Did it excite you? Disappoint you? Or, is this the first you're even hearing of it?

Former Rockets teammate James Harden doesn't seem at all bothered saying "Dwight [Howard] and I are the cornerstones of the Rockets," before clarifying "The rest of the guys are role players or pieces that complete our team. We've lost some pieces and added some pieces." That moment of candor led to Parsons responding on the Jay Mohr Sports Show "That's a pretty ridiculous statement if he meant that," before comparing his free agency to Harden's own, when he jumped from Oklahoma City to Houston a couple of seasons ago. He also added this ambiguous tweet earlier today:

Either Parsons is clearly fazed by these comments from his former teammates, or it's some sort of Sphinx's riddle for his followers to piece together.

That, of course, is up for you to decide.
