Chandler Parsons celebrated getting drafted without knowing who drafted him

Chandler ParsonsWe always hear funny stories about how guys react to before and after getting drafted in the NBA. You can now add Houston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons’ name to that group as well.

Parsons was coming off of an SEC Player of the Year campaign leading up to the draft. Most draft experts had him going late first to early second round in the 2011 NBA Draft. So when he was finally was drafted with the 38th overall pick, Parsons had no clue that the Houston Rockets selected him.

“When I actually got drafted, I didn’t realize who it was to at the beginning,” Parsons said. “I hugged everybody and asked my brother, ‘So where am I going?’ ”

I guess you can’t blame Parsons getting caught up with emotion that he didn’t even know who drafted him. Parsons says going through the night gave him the motivation to become the player he is today.

“I remember that night like it was yesterday,” Parsons said. “The reason: It keeps me motivated and to be the best player I can become. That was a frustrating night, but I couldn’t be in a better place for me. The opportunity I have in Houston is unbelievable. I couldn’t be happier.”

I think it’s safe to say the Houston Rockets are happy too.
