Of all the times Chandler Parsons has watched the NBA Finals, and all the trophy presentations and celebrations he has seen, this year’s seemed different.

As scintillating as the Miami-San Antonio series and Thursday’s Game 7 was, Parsons found them unsatisfying. If anything, they left him hungry, a feeling he had to share.

The Heat players were still on the AmericanAirlines Arena floor when Parsons sent out a simple tweet:

“Next season. …”

But Parsons didn’t stop there.

Not long after his Twitter posting, Parsons sent a text message to his Rockets teammates about his plans not just to watch the NBA Finals next season but to participate in them.

“I couldn’t help but picture us there and playing that game,” Parsons said. “I was thinking there is no reason that couldn’t and shouldn’t be us next year.”

Parsons still wasn’t done bouncing messages across America.

Rockets players have a thread that allows them to share text messages as a group this offseason. Parsons, however, added a separate thought for Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard, the Rockets’ primary free-agent target.

“After watching that last night,” Parsons said, “I hit him with, ‘Come to Houston. That could be us.’ ”

That wasn’t anything new for Howard. He has heard plenty from Parsons this offseason.

“I talk to Dwight every day,” Parsons said. “I’ve created a relationship with him, where I feel like we’re very close. He hits me up about everything. I’ve covered pretty much every question he’s had. I basically tell him, ‘We have a chance to be really good without you next year. We’re going to have a good season. Why not come and join us, join our core guys who are for sure to be here and make us great, make us contend for a championship?’

“That’s the main point I’ve gotten from talking to him. He wants to win. He wants to win rings. It’s obvious there is no better fit, no better team or opportunity to do that than with us.”
