Chandler Parsons posted shirtless picture after Rick Carlisle called him overweight

Rick Carlisle called Chandler Parsons overweight. Parsons posted a shirtless picture on Instagram to possibly combat that claim.

Chandler Parsons' weight has been a talking point around the Mavericks. Parsons weighs somewhere around 230 pounds and Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle would prefer he weigh a little less. Carlisle said Parsons was heavier than he should be following the Mavericks' preseason game on Friday.

"Parsons looked tired out there," Carlisle said, via the Dallas Morning News. "His shot was short. He's working on losing some weight. He's a little heavier than he's been. He's up over 230 and we'd like to see him get down to at least 225. That's a work in progress. Tonight was one of those nights where I think the extra weight was a hindrance."

Parsons disputed the claim following the game, saying he has a different opinion of heavy than Carlisle and the two "kind of go at it everyday." Well on Saturday, he provided visual evidence to support his side of the story.

That would be a pig emoji added to the shirtless picture to emphasize the point. We eagerly await Carlisle's Instagram response.
