Anybody who plays for the Lakers is going to be in incredible shape. Just look at Lamar after he left and how he blew up into a balloon.

As for Parsons, he's a nice well-rounded player, but his stats for the Lakers game were really inflated because they put Kobe on him and that usually means wide open shots as Kobe plays roamer and sits in the paint.
You're right about MWP.
And for Parsons: I've watched a few more Rockets games and he always stands out, high motor, good shooting and he always get's a lot of praise. He might become a borderline all-star someday. The Rockets sure have a fun young team.

I agree, he didn't even get him with the elbow. If lin was 2 inches taller it would of been a back-hand to the chest.

Any other player but Metta and we wouldn't be discussing this.

I saw it in live action, and though it looked like nothing much it was a careless hair-trigger response. The right call was made. I never expected it to go beyond that, but Metta's immediate reaction to his own brainless actions gives it some afterlife I would suspect.

say whatever you like, but NBA needs villains like Artest. I like the way how he is, until he starts seriously injuring others
Artest is just a meaner Kleiza and you like the way Kleiza is, his aggression , same way you'd like Artest if he was a Raptor
