Tony Parker = Western Conference Player of the Week!!!!
Congrats to All Star Tony Parker!!!!
What a GREAT HONOR!!!!:worthy
Very Well Deserved! :rock :p
Go Tony you and your bad self!!!!
Go Spurs Go
Spurs point guard Tony Parker has been named Western Conference Player of the Week for the eighth time in his 12-year career, the NBA announced Monday.
Parker, recently named to his fifth All-Star game, averaged 24.5 points and 9.5 assists while shooting 60.6 percent as the Spurs went 4-0. He was particularly good in the absences of Tim Duncan and head coach Gregg Popovich, averaging 26 points and 10 assists over the past three games.
His four outings last week:
at Philadelphia (W): 20 points, 8 assists, 8-for-15 shooting.
New Orleans (W): 24 points, 13 assists, four rebounds, 10 -for-18 shooting.
at Dallas (W): 23 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, 9-for-16 shooting.
Phoenix (W): 31 points, 7 assists, four rebounds, two steals, 13-for-17 shooting.
The Phoenix performance was his best of the season according to Basketball Reference’s game scoring.
There were several people a few years ago that said Parker had already lost a step and once he lost his speed he would be useless. Obviously, I argued against that theory. I said he would develop a shot and that footwork is the name of the game when you lose speed, ala Steve Nash. They also said he was past his prime when he was only 28.
The recent winning streak has everything to do with TP's taking over the 4th quarter of games. Spurs haven't been blowing anyone out and only pull away when TP starts shooting from all over the floor and when the D finally locks down.
So Glad to see Tony taking CONTROLL with double L's because he is doing this with Authority and when it counts in the second half esp the fourth when it counts.... To CLOSE!!!! Great Reason this team is so consistent no other than the under rated TP who keeps wanting to do BETTER. Pop keeps challenging him and all Tony does is ANSWER with his GAME. Let his game talk about him. Let's hope he keeps it up! :drummer
Well earned. I can't help but think that Stephen Jackson has helped Tiago and Tony bring out toughness in their game. When Parker made a hard punishing drive to the basket the other night for an and-one, the first thing he did was give SJ a low 5. Jeff VanGundy never ceased talking about his toughness.
Way to go, Rodney Dangerfield.... Oops I mean Tony Parker! He'll never get respect! But 4 rings would be a nice middle finger to the rest of the league. Out of all those top tier point guards, only Rondo has a ring.
Did you all also hear JVG said he wants to move permanently to live in San Antonio so he can watch all Spurs soooooo entertaining bball games :lol @ JVG'LOVE to the Spurs...JVG said 2 yrs back he would pay money to watch Manu play too..
