10. What I’ll remember most about Tony Parker won’t be the accent or the weird obsession every woman in the world had with him just because he’s from France. I will remember that blinding crossover that’s always balancing the line between a nice move and a carry. On this play, it wasn’t so much skill as speed that left Steve Blake‘s feet stuck to the floor.
9. For years, Parker was known as the best scoring little man in the paint. He always seemed to finish. Now that Russell Westbrook and Derrick Rose have rewritten the laws of gravity for the game’s best point guards, it’s easy to forget that Parker’s ability to create something out of nothing at the rim is almost unparalleled for a short guard.
