Now, there are several theories to this wide-speculated conspiracy. Just how did Starbucks mix Chandler Parsons with Dirk Nowitzki? Had the barista been confused as to which professional basketball player entered their location?
Parson’s caption to accompany the photo suggested it might be. "Finally hit some shots and this happens…#congratson9," he wrote.
If we read too far into this, the caption would suggest that Chandler was feeling pretty good about himself and his start this season but was quickly humbled.
But, honestly, it is hard to believe he would be confused for one of Dallas most famous men. Sure they may not know who Parsons is yet, but they most certainly would know Dirk, right?
Another theory goes that the barista was just messing with him since not too long ago, Dirk said Parsons was expected to pay for all Dirk’s meals on the road because it was "his money anyway." So, not only is Dirk’s money paying for Parsons to be in Dallas, but also, for his coffee.
