Mavs Call Home Loss To Short-Handed Pacers “Embarrassing,” “Horrific”

Dirk Nowitzki

No win in the NBA can be assumed – all 30 teams employ professional basketball players. And considering that logic, no loss should be overly disappointing, either. The Dallas Mavericks don’t subscribe to the latter line of thinking. After falling to the Roy Hibbert-less Indiana Pacers 111-100 at American Airlines Center on Monday, Chandler Parsons and Dirk Nowitzki offered pointed words to describe the game’s outcome.

Photo: Starbucks Employee Writes “Dirk” On Chandler Parsons’ Coffee

Chandler Parsons

Dirk Nowitzki was Chandler Parsons’ childhood idol. Now that the towering sharpshooters are teammates on the Dallas Mavericks, then, it’s only natural that residents of Big D would confuse them from time to time. A day after Nowitzki surpassed Hakeem Olajuwon to become the NBA’s all-time leading international scorer, Parsons took to Starbucks for a coffee break and was mistaken for the future Hall-of-Famer.

Chandler Parsons Says “I Don’t Pay Any Attention” To Trevor Ariza, But He Should

Trevor Ariza, Chandler Parsons

Over the summer the Houston Rockets let prized wing Chandler Parsons sign with the Dallas Mavericks for a three-year, $46 million contract they didn’t want to match. Instead of matching that offer sheet, they signed free agent Trevor Ariza, and many thought they’d suffer this season for the purported downgrade. Through the season’s first eight days, though, Houston is undefeated and Ariza has turned into the perfect amalgamation of efficiency. Parsons, meanwhile, says he doesn’t pay attention to him.

Video: Chandler Parsons Spikes Slam Against Spurs In First Dunk Of The Season

Chandler Parsons

The Mavs are outplaying the defending champs on ring night, but all defending champs have a tendency to underwhelm when they’re receiving their hardware from the previous season. Chandler Parsons started the 2014-15 season with a dunk after sluicing through the Spurs’ D (Gregg Popovich already has a lot of tape to show his team) before the one-handed slam. Read More »

Dirk Says Dinners Are On Chandler Parsons Because “It’s My Money Anyway”

Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons

Dirk Nowitzki took a massive paycut on the deal he signed with the Dallas Mavericks this summer. Despite the 36 year-old holding max-level offers from the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, and undoubtedly many more, Dirk signed on Mark Cuban’s dotted line for a paltry $25 million over three seasons so Dallas could ink Chandler Parsons to a contract carrying a $15 million salary while maintaining future financial flexibility. Talk about team first. Read More »

Chandler Parsons Says Dallas Is “Nicer, Cleaner” Than Houston

Chandler Parsons

The three-year, $46 million offer sheet that Chandler Parsons signed with the Dallas Mavericks might have been the means of his departure from the nearby Houston Rockets. But according to Dirk Nowitzki’s latest running mate, the cleanliness of his new team’s town is another boon compared to his old one’s. In an interview at media day last week, Parsons said that Dallas is a “nicer, cleaner” city than Houston. Read More »

Coach Carlisle On Chandler Parsons: “Not Quite In Shape Yet,” But “Will Be Shortly”

Chandler Parsons

New Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons has added some bulk this offseason. While some might see it as added strength, perhaps as an attempt to back up Dirk Nowitzki at power forward, coach Rick Carlisle is of the belief, “One man’s bulking up, is another man’s not quite in shape yet.” That’s what Carlisle told Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News, but the coach is sure Chandler will get in shape soon.
