Parsons Feels Like He’s Letting Team, City Down


“Maybe it will help (critics/fans) to know that nobody on our team works harder than him,” (Grizzlies coach David) Fizdale said of (Chandler) Parsons. “He’s in here every day, all night, either getting treatment, lifting, shooting. My coaches with families are staying in here late at night with him, because he carries that weight heavier than anybody.”

“He feels like he’s letting his team down, he feels like he’s letting this city down, and he doesn’t want that,” Fizdale said of Parsons. “I know people get on him about the social media stuff. That’s today’s athlete. I don’t know why people get all riled up.”
