NBA player shaves head to support little fan battling cancer

Rockets forward Chandler Parsons has developed a bond with Patrick Hobbs-DeClaire, a patient at Texas Children's Hospital.

Rockets.com reporter Jason Friedman has quotes, too:

"The kid is so strong and so brave," [Chandler Parsons] says of Patrick. "Here I am going to see a podiatrist for an ingrown toenail and this kid is battling for his life. How he handles it is incredible. It’s similar to what we do: He tries to not look ahead and he tries to not look behind. He game plans for every single day and every day is a new day and a new challenge. He just tries to plan and do what he’s got to do for that day to survive."

Parsons showed off the new look on Instagram.

Update: Parsons shouted out Patrick on Twitter after the Rockets' Christmas win.
