Will Rockets Use Chandler Parson At Point Guard?

Call this the Week of Chandler Parsons Love.

After all the posts Tuesday and Wednesday highlighting the rookie's defensive prowess, we get a note that the Rockets are considering using him as the backup point guard. Of course they are!

I guess using Courtney Lee there isn't as bad as Parsons, but Houston must really be desperate if they're considering this drastic a move. That, or Kevin McHale really doesn't like Courtney Forson's defense.

"I’m comfortable with the ball in my hands," Parsons said. "If he needs to get the offense going through me, then I can definitely do that and we’ll see how it works."

Apparently, Parsons was a point guard at Florida, so he's got some experience there. Plus, he's saying all the right things. I'm not sure I love him as the backup point guard, but I can tell you that with each passing game and each story like this, I like him more and more. Might be my favorite Rockets rookie since...well, maybe Yao.
