Chandler Parsons eager to learn from Dirk Nowitzki

Chandler Parsons grew up idolizing Dallas Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki, and it Nowitzki’s presence that played a role in drawing him to Dallas. Now that the two are together on the same team, Parsons wants to take full advantage of his veteran teammate and pick his brain and learn as much as possible from the future Hall of Famer.

Parsons is already thinking about how the two can be effective and complement one another while they’re both on the court. The pick and roll is an area in particular where Parsons thinks he and Dirk can work well together.

“I think we’re going to be really good,” Parsons said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Me and him in the pick and roll and working off each other, I think it’s going to be tough to guard. We can be really efficient.”
