The Houston Rockets swung and missed on Chris Bosh, and on a smaller scale Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James. Their goal was to add a third superstar to the team to join Dwight Howard and James Harden. In the process, they managed to lose their future star, forward Chandler Parsons.
Parsons says he feels like he could have been that third superstar and was offended by the way the Rockets treated him.
Honestly, I was offended by the whole process,” Parsons told Yahoo Sports on Monday in a phone interview. “They publicly said that they were going out looking for a third star when I thought they had one right in front of them. I guess that’s just how they viewed me as a player. I don’t think I’ve scratched the surface of where I can be as a player and I think I’m ready for that role.
Parsons averaged 16.6 points and 5.5 rebound last year on a team that featured James Harden and Dwight Howard as the primary scoring option.
