TD will always anchor our D and we went to him often in the post but if we are going by memory I remember TP hitting that crazy shot at the end of Game 1 that put us in the position to just nearly make it. Then I also remember him taking over in 4th quarters and scoring whenever we were bogged down, especially when the 3 ball wasn't dropping.
You might argue either way between the two but to say there was someone else more important is way off the mark.
We have always relied on team effort but when that fell apart I remember TP scoring as needed not missing shots and costing the offence, over the last two years everyone including Pop and TD have said it is his team and it is structured around this.
I agree Parker was no worse than second.... But to automatically assume Parker would have won it is also way off base. I couldn't findu it but I believe Duncan - /+ was also significantly higber... I'm pretty sure it was Duncan's MVP. Especially after Duncan's huge game 6 and 7...game 7 Parker didn't even show up.
I'll be happy to have both out there.... I think Mills is going to play a pretty important role down the stretch....
