Chandler Parsons burns DeAndre Jordan
Chandler Parsons was one of the Dallas Mavericks who most actively recruited DeAndre Jordan over the summer, so it’s understandable that he was personally offended when the center spurned Dallas to return to the Clippers. Apparently those feelings still linger.
After his Mavericks beat Jordan’s Clippers on the court 118-108, Parsons decided to zing his one-time pal.
Chandler Parsons, asked if DeAndre drama is done: "He's not a priority to us, and by the looks of their team he's not to them either."

Jordan only attempted five shots in 27 minutes for the Clippers, though he did get into foul trouble. Parsons did not play as he rested in his recovery from knee surgery, but he was paying attention to the game.
Recall that one of the reasons Jordan was said to be interested in leaving the Clippers was because he wanted a bigger offensive role. He isn’t exactly seeing that with the Clippers, but he is nonetheless a very big part of their team. And let’s all recall that this is not the first time Parsons had harsh words for Jordan; what he said in July was even more grating. It’s safe to say he’s still not over things.
