Mark Jackson and Chandler Parsons Engage in Twitter Trash Talk
There seems to be some animosity brewing between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets.
According to Slam Online, the Houston Chronicle reported that Warriors head coach Mark Jackson and Rockets forward Chandler Parsons have a little feud going. It started when Jackson complimented Parsons on his versatility earlier in the season but also added that “He should probably stay off Twitter.”
Parsons, obviously took offense to that comment because, following the Rockets demolition of the Warriors in a 140-109 victory in early February – where Houston tied an NBA record by knocking down 23 3-pointers – he tweeted one of Jackson’s popular phrases “Hand down, man down.”
After the Warriors gained some measure of revenge by blowing out the Rockets 108-78 on Sunday, they were at it again.

The whole situation is actually quite funny, and the fact that both teams are battling for a favorable position in the Western Conference standings with Golden State leading Houston by two games in the 6th and 7th spot respectively, makes it even more interesting. It’s just a shame they won’t be facing each other again in the regular season.
