BASKETBALL – If Tony Parker has already won everything with the San Antonio Spurs and the team of France, he returned for a new season with the desire of a young wolf. With his fourth NBA championship with the key?
“The team of France is a good therapy. “
Tony Parker has won everything, experienced everything seen everything. At 31, he is already considered the best French basketball player of all time, even as the biggest sporting hexagonal by some. TP already has three NBA championships under his belt, five selections in NBA All Star Game, and of course the title of European champion won with the team of France there is a little more than a month in Slovenia during the Euro 2013. A tournament in which he had been logically named MVP. “It was a great victory for us, the French and the French basketball sport, Parker provides. We’ll try to ride the wave.” Under these conditions, many leave quietly slip into retirement, gradually losing fire , envy, grinta. However, this is not the case with Tony Parker.”My dream is to manage a French club at the end of my career.
I already do the Asvel, where I learn alongside Gilles Moretton (club president). But I do not see myself doing that right now. I hope to play seven or eight years. I want to play as long as possible. I prepare my future, but I’m in no hurry, “he has said, in a press conference .
The Nightmare Of Game 6 Of The Finals:
Parker wants to play, but even more to win. Assisted by his countrymen Boris Diaw and Nando Colo, but especially the two legends are Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, or the role players Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green and Tiago Splitter, he will try to win a title with San Antonio last His team always. “We went so close last season.This is what allows me to keep moving,” says he. And for good reason: the Spurs led by five points with thirty seconds left of regulation time the sixth game of the NBA Finals last. Except that Miami had finally won the encounter in overtime (103-100 AD), before removing the Game 7 and the coronation (95-88). The famous Game 6 was not finished haunt Spurs and TP. Unless the Texas franchise wins fifth title in the years to come.
San Antonio Among The Favorites:
If the Heat, double champion, will start with the favor of forecasts, San Antonio is part of the group of favorites with Oklahoma City, Chicago, the Clippers. A list to which we could add serious outsiders that are both New York teams, the Nets and Knicks or Indiana, Memphis, Golden State and Houston, with James Harden and Dwight Howard. But few teams have as much experience, maturity and certainty in the game as training driven by Gregg Popovich. The latter should be able to count on Tony Parker at his best to dream of the coronation. Luckily: TP playing the best basketball of his career in recent years and this is one of the best players in the world in his position. If Tim Duncan is still the soul of this team is indeed Parker boss on the ground. Whoever takes the important shots, one who sets the pace and is the most dangerous in attack. He also turned over 20 points per game last season, the second highest average of his career. All with 7.6 assists per game. A little less than his career high of the previous season (7.7 / match).
No Time To Waste For Spurs:
Expect him to be as aggressive as it has always been on the field again this season. This is the basis of his game, his stock in trade somehow, he has never been afraid to go to challenge the giants of 2m15 in the top basket of the meter 88. The question is whether the physics of “Big Three” of San Antonio follow. If Parker ultimately has 31 years, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili had 37, 36. Window shots of this group is one or two years at most. There is no time to lose all before a medal at the Olympics in Rio in 2016 with the Blues? It is another object of Tony Parker, who definitely still work on the board before hanging up.
