Tony Parker

William Anthony Parker Jr. (SAS) – “TP”  peak

(Soobum Im/USA TODAY Sports)


SAS Point Guard: 6’2, 185 lbs; 17th year, France 

 NBA Role: scoring point guard • SAS Depth Chart: Starter

Tony Parker, THE best Frenchman of all time, is still going semi-strong in San Antonio; the engine of Gregg Popovich’s offense for over a decade, TP has fallen back into a supporting role w/ the emergence of Kawhi Leonard & signing of LaMarcus Aldridge; Parker’s a vet who’s been through it all though – he’s still providing his usual quickness and savvy shot-making, albeit in smaller doses; continues to boast a killer floater, slick spin move and inventive midrange attack; liability on D?; Parker’s leadership will be counted upon as SA seeks its 6th NBA championship in 2017-18; despite 4 rings, Tony somehow always seems to land on the ‘underrated’ end of discussions involving other point guards named Parker**

*Spurs don’t technically have a pecking order but it’s fun to rank

**Smush continues to consistently rank higher
