Tony Parker:San Antonio's Forgotten Man - Good Read

Here's a good article on TP at Grantland complete with a great shot chart.

On February 13, the Spurs and Cavaliers were tied at 93 with about 15 seconds left in the game. Dion Waiters was dribbling near midcourt and about to make one of the biggest shots of his career. With just under 14 seconds left, Tristan Thompson set a screen on Kawhi Leonard near the top of the arc, enabling Waiters to advance the ball a little closer to the basket along the left side. As Waiters approached the left elbow, he lunged toward Tim Duncan, but quickly stepped back to create space for a long, off-balance 2-point shot. The ball left Waiters’s hand from about 20 feet out and went through the net with 9.5 seconds remaining. Despite not passing the ball once, the Cavs scored, the score was now 95-93, and Dion made this face...

You're right. It is a good read. I found one comment by a Clippers fan interesting in that he would trade Chris Paul for TP straight up in a heartbeat.

Injury history is a good reason, Paul is not as durable as TP, Parker is a freakin tank.

i always think about parker toughness when teams beat him... they can beat him every drive to the rim and he keep going fearless...
