How Bromantic…wait, what was that?
While Patrick Patterson is out there working hard on his game and crushing competition with his incredible field goal percentage, a couple of his more talked about teammates are playing tiddlywinks on the bench.
Or something like that.
I happened upon this image collection on the illustrious r/NBA (great stuff on there for all you pro hoops fans). It looks like the Rockets have a budding and beautiful bromance between Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons, our former Gator foe. I am not going to pass judgement on these fellas, but I will say all of these photos got some major laughter out of me.
I really cannot believe how much these guys are ‘bonding’. But I shouldn’t be surprised – don’t we all remember the Chandler Parsons, Jai Lucas, and Nick Calathes facial cream picture from there freshman year? (Damn it, I can’t find that picture anywhere for the life of me. Someone please find it.)
But in all seriousness, while these pics are hilariously awkward and I LOVE to laugh at a former Florida boy, I am blown away by how solid of an NBA player that Parsons has turned out to be. His rookie year has been way above expectations. It goes to show that guys who are solid all around can find their role in the pros.
Check out the set of pics here. It’s really great stuff.
