Record when Parker went out: 11-5
Record after Parker came back: 7-9
I haven't as yet read the article where Tony Parker mentions that Manu's extension has negative implications or positive ones. I guess he must have mentioned they were negative.
I should have read the article where someone from the Spurs coaching staff mentions that Parker was benched because of the Spurs record with or without him. I will try to pay more attention next time.
