PHOTO: Chandler Parsons Responds Via Instagram To Coach's Concerns Over His Weight

Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle was a little concerned with new Mav Chandler Parsons reported to training camp at 235 pounds - 20 pounds over his listed weight with the Houston Rockets in 2013-14.

"He looked tired out there tonight to me, and his shot is short," Carlisle said, via "He's working on losing some weight. He's a little bit heavier than he's been. He's up over 230, and we want to see him get down to at least 225. That's a work in progress, and tonight's one of those nights where I think the extra weight was a hindrance."

“His opinion of heavy is different than mine,” said Parsons, via NBC's Pro Basketball Talk. “We kind of go at it every day about it. At the end of the day, I respect his opinion. After training camp, my weight fluctuates. I’ll get it down.”

Rather than let it go at that, Parsons also decided to show off his....eight-pack (?!?!)...via Instagram in order to prove a point:
