For some reason Dwight Howard wants his Houston Rockets teammates to have a Mohawk (or something close to resembling it), just as he does. The likes of James Harden and Jeremy Lin already do, but not everyone is cooperating.
But if he continues to deploy methods of persuasion that are similar to his latest one, then don't expect the resistance to last much longer.
The All-Star bigman offered Chandler Parsons his white Ferrari FF worth over $250 thousand, after a driver ran a red light and crashed into his SUV. All he had to do in return? Get a different haircut.
However the car is just a loan and Parsons, who makes just under $1 million a year under his current contract, will have to return it in the same condition at the end of the post season.
“I didn’t give away a car,” Howard said. “I just let him borrow my car for the playoffs. I didn’t actually buy Chandler a Ferrari for a Mohawk. That would be crazy. Not that nice. I love Chandler to death, but I worked hard for that car.”
Parsons though has already seemingly fallen in love with the car, saying: “I’m driving that thing every day until we win the championship. It’s unreal. I don’t know if I’m ever going to drive anything else. It’s nice.”
Then again, if he continues to play like the way he has done for the past two seasons, it won’t be too long until he gets a big payday and buys one of his own.
