If there is anything we have learned over here at Gamedayr, it is that Chandler Parsons is one of the NBA’s good guys. He was gracious enough to sit down with us for an interview prior to the 2012-13 season, and he recently provided his fans with an impromptu Q&A via Twitter.
But what he did for a random girl that he had never even met might just take the cake.
Houston native Stephanie Flores reached out to the former Florida Gators and current Rockets star, asking him to her high school prom.
@chandlerparsons pleaseeee make my life and escort me to my prom on May 31st!!! A simple response would make up for it. I am a huge fan!!!

Unfortunately, Parsons was not able to make the trip, but even just the response was enough for Flores — hey, it’s better than getting all doughy-eyed over Justin Beiber and his questionable water-drinking habits, right?
@chandlerparsons You responding back means everything! Thanks so much! Go Rockets!

But Parsons then did the completely unexpected. Instead of letting it go at that (which really would have been fine as we’re not entirely alright with the increasingly popular “ask a celeb to prom” move) Parsons went ahead and rented Flores a massive party buss for her and her friends.
Flores proceeded to tweet out the unreal ride. Luckily, nobody took any pictures with alcohol.
@chandlerparsons Thank you so much for making my prom even more exciting! My friends and I are extremley grateful for the party bus!THANK U!
