Chandler Parsons does not understand why the Dallas Mavericks' fans don't like him

It's safe to say Chandler Parson's exit from Dallas was a far from pretty one.

To cut a long story short, Parson's had both of his seasons in Dallas cut short by knee surgery and while Dirk Nowitzki took a pay cut to attract better players to join him, the Mavs ended up paying Parsons that spare money.

Since he departed Dallas for a $94 million deal with the Memphis Grizzlies this past summer, Parsons has been inundated with abuse from Mavs fans who have claimed he stole money from Dirk and isn't worth what the Grizzlies are paying him.

With the Grizzlies squaring off against the Mavericks tonight, although Parsons anticipates some boos, he thinks it is ridiculous.

"Houston, I get it. I said some stupid stuff on the way out of Houston [after three seasons]," Parsons told ESPN, referring to the boos he gets from Houston Rockets fans every time he returns to the Toyota Center as a visitor. "Dallas, I don't understand. It's like getting mad at somebody for getting in a car wreck and breaking their arm. Like, how in the world can you be mad at somebody for getting hurt? It makes no sense.

"That's just so wrong to get mad at somebody for getting hurt, like they want to go through the rehab, want to go through the pain, want to go through the misery of not playing. I can never understand that aspect of it.

"So when it comes to Dallas, you're going to get mad at me because Dirk decided to take less money to bring in a really good player and then, unfortunately, he gets hurt? That's why you're mad? Sure, boo."

We wish it worked that way, Chandler.
