Fan runs into Chandler Parson’s car on way to game, asks for autograph

It was just a fender bender, the good news is nobody got hurt.

However, Chandler Parsons was delayed getting to the Toyota Center for the Rockets game Monday when he got into an accident.

And then the other driver found out who he was and… I will let Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle tell the story.

A driver outside Toyota Center ran a red light and hit Parsons’ SUV near the entrance to the loading dock. Parsons said he and driver were not hurt, though it made him a few minutes late for treatment before shooting to see if he would be cleared to play.

“She said she ran a red light and it was her fault,” Parsons said. “She had a little car so it kind of messed up the front bumper of my car. She was OK. Asked me to sign her insurance card.”

This is where she was lucky she didn’t run into J.R. Smith basically driving around in a tank.

Parsons was just fine — he scored 21 points and had seven rebounds and four assists as the Rockets beat the Spurs 104-98 to secure home court advantage in the first round against Portland.

    I mean it’s pretty obvious her car would have exploded had she ran into JR’s tank. Don’t u know it’s pretty routine to cars running into tanks???
    Damn must have played San Andreas too much.

      J.R. has a tank because he doesn’t know how to drive… he’s only protecting himself, to heck with others…

    JR Smith killed a guy… no joke.

    That’s a pretty ballsy move on that lady’s part. I just give these guys a head nod and a dap and keep it pushing whenever I run into a player, I never ask for anything, not even a picture. I can’t imagine hitting someone’s car, it being MY fault and then asking for an autograph. BTW……did she get it??
