Parsons, a former All-Rookie First Team member, appeared on FanDuel TV’s Run It Back and said there was no way he could ever act the way James is acting in that moment.
“I can watch my French bulldog get run over by the postman right now, and I wouldn’t act that way. I swear to God,” Parsons said on the show. “That was one of the craziest reactions.”
