The player who leads the NBA in points in the paint is on the Spurs.....

And its not Tim Duncan...

Tony Parker leads the NBA in points in the aint this year!!!


Thats just plain SICK

Thats is one stat that I do not understand how a PG can do that, buts thats what TNT said.

The stat was up for like 2 seconds, and I think it was something like 285 points in the paint, but thats just a guess as to what the number was.

He's been leading it all year. For people who've been watching the Spurs, it's not suprise at all.

I agree, Al. To me, Tony's looking more and more like vintage Kevin Johnson all the time.

It's way more than 285 AL. He averages 20ppg through 38 games. He scores way more 7ppg in the paint, probably closer to 12ppg.

The Total is probably up past 500 points and close to 600.

Once TP develops his outside shot he will be pretty much impossilble to guard....

I will say one thing...and this is no knock on TD or Gino.

TD has been hurt with his foort/heel.

Gino has been in and out with injuries as well.

If it was not for TP, and how well he is playing , we would be in alot of trouble.

Tony's going to need to up his game again- with lame Tim and positional defender Rasho Tony needs to be putting together some double doubles!

The incredible thing about tonight's game was that Tony made it look easy. Even the tough shots he made it seemed like he was flying in there and the Grizz were flailing at him.

This is old news. He's been #1 in that category for a while now. And yes it's amazing. I believe a Guard has never finished 1st in that category.

And we should consider ourselves VERY fortunate that the Spurs signed him before he became a free-agent in six months. Man, I don't even WANT to imagine what his market value would be like then.

I think Tony is the only guard of the top 5 players in the paint. Does anyone know where we can find the stats?

They just showed a graphic on TNT. He's leading the league with 466 points, TD second with 460.

TP with 466, TD with 460, LeBron is next with 448, then Marion with 440 and Melo (5th) with 432. Tony is the only PG of the top 5 "points in the paint" players.

The TNT graphic also showed that today Tony had a career high 22 points in the paint. That's 11 layups and floaters!

Tony has mastered the art of finishing in the paint with the lay-up. Imagine if he dunked the ball more often. The number of dunks he would have would rival players like Shaq and Amare.

wow..hold your horses. Dunking in the lane requires much more body mass and strength than layups
