Chandler Parsons: Clutch shooter, tough when it counts

0 Comments

It’s time for a guest star. This blog features Rob Dauster, who also runs Ballin’ Is a Habit, one of the web’s best all-around hoops blogs.

But BIAH isn’t a one-man show. Troy Machir is Rob’s right-hand man. He produces the Morning Link Dump (one of the first things I read every day) and compiles a ton of video. You’ve probably seen his POSTERIZED links.

Well, here’s a video link where Troy did himself proud. So instead of cribbing his work, I’m just gonna throw the whole thing in the blog and call him a genius. Take it away, Troy.

We’ve all been ball-tapped before.

It sucks.

There’s no way around it. That first 90 seconds after getting hit in the pills is some of the worst pain anybody can ever feel. As soon as the pain subsides, usually you look directly for the attacker and try to return the favor.

Chandler Parsons was put in a lose-lose situation on Tuesday night.

You see, Parsons hit a clutch three-pointer in double-OT of Florida’s win at Georgia, but was then slapped in the balls by an errant Vernon Macklin towel swing. You know what, just watch the video, because something like this is hard to put into words.

Is that how you reward a teammate for hit a clutch shot?

I wonder how hard Chandler Parsons ball-tapped Macklin when they got to the locker room?

Thanks Troy. And ouch.
