Chandler Parsons was able to play on Monday night despite recovering from minor injuries he suffered last week and getting into a car accident on his way to the game. The Houston Rockets forward, who ended up scoring 21 points and grabbing seven rebounds in a win over the San Antonio Spurs, was reportedly struck by a woman who ran a red light.
Parsons told Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle that the collision happened outside the Toyota Center. He also said the woman asked for a souvenir.
“She said she ran a red light and it was her fault,” Parsons explained. “She had a little car so it kind of messed up the front bumper of my car. She was OK. Asked me to sign her insurance card.”
The woman was apparently not rattled to the point where she didn’t know who Chandler Parsons is, so she must be a pretty big Rockets fan. It takes guts to ask for someone’s autograph after running a red light and crashing into them. I can’t figure out if I respect that move or not. Yeah, I think it’s a power move.
