Hell, the man stuck with Manu this finals and he still benched Parker most of that playoffs.
Many, many people have argued that the 96' finals would've at least gone to seven if GP had guarded Jordan before game 4. His greatest asset was his defense and he wasn't able to use it until it was too late.
first off...Manu wasnt better than Parker in 07...i can argue that Manu has never been better than Parker...any year...stat wise...health wise and impact wise...Manu comes through in the playoffs yes but we can count on Parker alllll year. Second Parker didnt get benched for Hill...he was coming off of an injury...you fail to mention that nugget of info.
