Gay is considered a max player and star, gets compared to Durant and is like a near top 5 player in NBA 2k. At least that's what I hear, which would be highly overrated, and he's considered a great scorer, when he's a merely a good scorer, not great. Parson's one of my favorite players, 'cuz he has such a unique skill set. He's 6'10" and can handle the ball, wasn't a great shooter coming out of college, but less than 2 years in the NBA, he now is, so we know he's a hard worker. And he's very athletic as we saw him posterize about 30 dudes at Florida...which has translated well in the NBA. Also an excellent passer and defender. Reminds me of a young Lamar Odom. Pretty amazing considering he was a second round pick and wasn't even expected to crack the rotation...and now he's looking like he could be a future all star. And at the time, the trade of Gay for Battier and Stromile Swift was a good one. Rockets were in a win-now mode and had T-Mac and Yao and needed that glue guy that didn't need to touch the ball a lot to contribute, which was Battier. And many were high on Swift, he just never developed his game and turned out to be a bust.
