"The injury that I had, [Mavs athletic trainer Casey Smith] was telling me how [the Anta shoes] were a little too flexible in the ankle, so I guess they said Jordan Brand had a stiffer shoe. In the meantime, I blacked out the logo and am trying to wear those until my new shoe is out." Parsons met with Anta representatives during the Mavs' trip to Portland, Oregon, at the beginning of their three-game road trip. The company agreed to alter his shoes to meet specifications suggested by Smith. "They're going to fix my shoe and hopefully send it back soon so I can get back in Anta," Parsons said.
