Brought up in a family with close ties to basketball, Parker played for two years in the French basketball league before entering the 2001 NBA Draft. He was selected by the San Antonio Spurs and quickly became their starting point guard, helping the Spurs win three NBA Championships in 2003, 2005 and 2007. Deploying his pace and high field goal percentage to great effect, Parker has been selected as an NBA All-Star twice and was the 2007 NBA Finals MVP.

Early life

Parker was born in Bruges, Belgium,[3] but raised in France.[1] His father, Tony Parker Sr., an African-American,[4] played basketball at Loyola University Chicago, as well as professionally overseas.[5] His mother, Pamela Firestone, was a Dutch model.[1] Parker enjoyed close relationships with his brothers and they would often attend their father's basketball games together.[6] At first, Parker was more interested in soccer, but after watching the evolution of Michael Jordan into a global basketball superstar, he changed his mind.[7] Moreover, Parker's two younger brothers were also heavily involved in basketball; T.J. and Pierre would go on to play basketball at professional and college levels respectively.[1] As Parker built his skill, his lack of size (notwithstanding a growth spurt at 15) decided his position on-court.[7] He played the point guard position, recognizing that his speed and agility made this station ideal for him.[7] He was eventually talent-spotted and asked to attend the National Institute for Sports and Physical Education in Paris.[8] After playing in the French minors for two seasons, Parker turned professional and signed with Paris Basket Racing in 1999.[1] Geography Country Belgium Community Flemish Community Region Flemish Region Province West Flanders Arrondissement Bruges Coordinates , , Area 138. ...

In the summer of 2000, Parker was invited to the Nike Hoop Summit in Indianapolis. There, in front of professional scouts and college coaches, he competed against the likes of future NBA players Darius Miles, Zach Randolph and Omar Cook. In a contest between the American and European All-Stars, Parker recorded 20 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.[9] The Frenchman's performance prompted a recruiting war between several colleges, including UCLA and Georgia Tech who were on the verge of persuading Parker to join them.[9] However, Parker decided to forgo the NCAA and remain in France; he spent the next two years with Racing in the French championship before entering the 2001 NBA Draft.

First championship

Gregg Popovich, after the 2007 championship[10]

Prior to the 2001 NBA Draft, Parker was invited to the San Antonio Spurs summer camp. Parker's first experiences were daunting as coach Gregg Popovich had him play against Spurs scout and ex-NBA player Lance Blanks. Parker was so overwhelmed by Blank's tough and physical defense that Popovich was ready to send him away after just 10 minutes.[11] But after seeing a "best of" mix tape of Parker's best plays, Popovich decided to invite Parker a second time.[9] This time, Parker made a better impression against Blanks; the Frenchman later described Blanks as a "one-man wrecking crew".[11] But while Popovich decided that Parker was worth the gamble, the Spurs still had to hope that other teams would not pick Parker during the draft. As it were, Parker's name was barely mentioned in the pre-draft predictions and the point guard was drafted 28th overall by the Spurs on draft day.[9] Gregg Popovich (born January 28, 1949 in East Chicago, Indiana) is the head coach of the National Basketball Associations San Antonio Spurs. ... 2001 NBA Draft — 27 June 2001 – New York City, New York Kwame Brown became the first high school player to be drafted number one overall in draft history. ...

Playing backup to Antonio Daniels,[9] Parker made 77 regular season appearances in his rookie season, averaging 9.2 points, 4.3 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 29.4 minutes per game.[1] When he played against the Los Angeles Clippers on November 30, 2001, he became the third French player ever to play in an NBA game, after Tariq Abdul-Wahad and Jerome Moiso.[12] Parker brought to the Spurs a greater tempo in their game, getting his teammates better looks at the basket whenever he was involved in transition offense. He could also hit open jump shots, and this created greater space for the big men on the team, Tim Duncan and David Robinson.[9] By the end of the season, the rookie led San Antonio in assists and steals, and was named to the All-Rookie First Team for 2001–02, becoming the first foreign-born guard to earn the honor.[1] Although the Spurs were eliminated during the playoffs,[13] Parker's performances did not go unnoticed.[9] Antonio Ray Daniels (born 19 March 1975 in Columbus, Ohio) is a professional basketball player in the NBA.

By his sophomore season, Parker had won his first championship ring. He played in all 82 regular season games as San Antonio's starting point guard[14] in a team that was largely revamped from previous years.[9] He improved his regular season statistics significantly, averaging 15.5 points per game (ppg), 5.3 assists per game (apg) and 2.6 rebounds per game (rpg).[14] Parker's role as the team's playmaker was reflected in his leading the team in assists on 49 occasions.[1] During the 2003 NBA All-Star Weekend, Parker represented the Sophomores in the Got Milk? Rookie Challenge, and also participated in the inaugural 989 Sports Skills Challenge.[1] In the post season, Parker recorded two career bests in scoring[1] as the Spurs, led by Tim Duncan, defeated the New Jersey Nets 4–2 in the finals, and Parker earned his first NBA championship ring.[15] Despite the victory, Parker struggled with inconsistent play throughout the playoffs, and was often substituted for the more experienced guards Steve Kerr and Speedy Claxton late in the games.[11] Throughout the season, Parker also felt that he was often criticized too harshly by coach Popovich; in retrospect, coach Popovich admitted he was critical of his young playmaker, stating he wanted Parker to build a thick skin and mature sooner than his peers.[11] The 2002-03 NBA season was the 57th season of the National Basketball Association. ...

Second championship

Despite winning a championship with the Spurs, doubts lingered over Parker's future. The Spurs had attempted and failed to acquire New Jersey Nets' Jason Kidd, but Parker told coach Popovich that he wanted to be San Antonio's starting point guard and he was ready to work hard to become a great player.[16] Parker played well during the regular season, recording 14.7 ppg, 5.5 apg and 3.2 rpg.[14] However, the Spurs were defeated by perennial rivals Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference semi-finals in the 2004 NBA Playoffs, and the favorites were denied back-to-back titles.[9] The New Jersey Nets are a professional basketball team. ...

During the 2004–05 season, Parker recorded improved regular season statistics, securing career-highs of 16.6 ppg, 6.1 apg and 3.7 rpg.[14] He was also ranked 13th in the league in total assists, and was third among point guards in field goal percentage.[1] The Spurs were strong in the playoffs, and Parker was instrumental in the victories over the Denver Nuggets, Seattle Supersonics and Phoenix Suns.[9] However, the Frenchman struggled in the Finals series against the Detroit Pistons. Spurs colleagues Manu Ginobili and Brent Barry often took over playmaking duties as Parker was unable to perform as well as he did in the regular season.[11] Pitted against ex-Finals MVP and All-Defensive Team member Chauncey Billups, Parker's jump shot became inconsistent, and his trademark drives to the hoop were often smothered by the defensively strong Pistons frontcourt anchored by four-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace.[11] Nevertheless, with the combination of Tim Duncan's consistent performances, the emergence of Argentine star Ginobili and Parker operating as playmaker, the Spurs won their third ever NBA championship by defeating the defending champions 4–3 in the 2005 NBA Finals.[15] The 2004-05 NBA season was the 59th season of the National Basketball Association (NBA). ...

He told me, ‘Coach, I’ll play in the NBA and, one day, France will recognise me as a great player’. It’s incredible how, at 18 years old, he could have such confidence. I thought he could play in the NBA, but not that he would become a player of the importance he is today.
Claude Bergeaud, who coached Parker on the France junior team[5]

Third championship

Parker was selected for the first time in his career an NBA All-Star for the 2005–06 season[17] as he managed a regular season career-high 18.9 ppg and a solid .548 in field goal percentage.[14] Parker's scoring average was even higher than Duncan's,[18] and his form propelled the Spurs to a 63–19 win-loss record and qualification for the 2006 NBA Playoffs. However, the top-seeded Spurs were again unable to win back-to-back titles as they were eliminated in the second round by the Dallas Mavericks.[19] The National Basketball Association (NBA) holds an All-Star Weekend every February, with a variety of basketball-related events, exhibitions, and performances culminating in the NBA All-Star Game held on Sunday night. ...

On 14 February 2007, after delivering consistent numbers in the first half of the 2006–07 season, Parker was selected to play in the 2007 NBA All-Star Game as a reserve guard.[20] With Parker operating as the starting point guard in the 2006–07 season, the Spurs qualified for the 2007 NBA Playoffs and finished second in the Southwest Division.[21] In the Western Conference Semifinals, the Spurs met the Phoenix Suns led by two-time and reigning NBA MVP Steve Nash. In the match-up versus the best point guard of his generation, Parker used his speed to score an easy layup, or hit with his improved mid-range jump shot.[11] Suns coach Mike D'Antoni even used All-Defensive Team forward Shawn Marion to cover Parker, but the Frenchman used the pick and roll to beat his much bigger counterpart.[11] After eliminating the Suns, the Spurs defeated the Utah Jazz 4–1 to win the Western Conference Finals.[22] Parker and the Spurs went on to face the Cleveland Cavaliers and swept them 4–0 to win the 2007 NBA Finals.[23] In this series, Parker consistently outplayed his Cavaliers conterparts Daniel Gibson and All-Defensive Team member Larry Hughes and scored a series-high 24.5 points, accompanied by a high field goal percentage of 56.8% and of 57.1% from three point range.[11] For his performances, he was named the 2007 NBA Finals MVP,[23] becoming the first European-born player to receive the award.[5] is the 45th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

For the third time in four years, San Antonio prevailed over Phoenix; Parker had an outstanding first round series, averaging nearly 30 points and 7 assists a game.[24] In the next round against Chris Paul's New Orleans Hornets, the Spurs dropped the first two road games before responding with a strong win in the third game.

Parker attempts a layup in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks

Parker plays the point guard position and has established himself as a potent scorer. Voted by his peers in a 2007 poll as one of the quickest players in the NBA,[31] he often slashes to the basket for a layup or teardrop shot. Despite his relatively small size for a basketball player (6'2"), he led the league in "points in the paint" for a large portion of the 2005–06 season.

In the initial part of his NBA career, Parker was still considered an erratic shooter of the ball and during the 2005 off-season, coach Popovich decided to work on this aspect of his play. Seeing his mediocre shooting percentages (at that point, Parker only hit 65% of his free throws, and only 27.6% of his three point shots), he let him train extra sessions with Spurs shooting coach Chip Engelland.[11] Engelland forbade Parker to shoot any three point shots, and among others, corrected his shooting motion and his thumb position. As a result, by the 2006–07 season, Parker had reduced his three point shots by 117 whilst shooting 147 more normal field goal attempts compared to 2005, and his accuracy rose by 4% (field goals and three point shots) and he was able to connect on 78% of his free throws that season.[11] Parker's field goal percentage is also high for a point guard, and his speed also makes him a fast break player. However, his style of play has had adverse effects on his knees (tendinitis).[32] It has been suggested that Three point play be merged into this article or section. ...

Tony knew there was a big difference between the kind of basketball played in the playoffs and what he had experienced in the regular season.
Tony had another superb outing in Game 6, teaming with Duncan to score 64 and spark a second-half wipeout of the defending champs, who saw their title run end at three in a row.
