    Yeah. He's the best. Tony Parker is the man. I hate him, but he's the man.

    As a Spurs I never really got off to Parker in the beginning but he's proved himself to be a beast. When Duncan and Manu were out he was putting up goodnumbers and winning games. As for point guards hes got to be the best. Avery was good but he wasn't a great outside shooter not that Parker is but whenwe need a three he is able to shoot it, avery never made to many threes and terry porter we had him when he was already old. Doc was decent.

    Having more championships than all those players combined, and being a major contributor during those title runs, will help him earn the debate.

    When it's all said and done (as much as dislike him) he will be the best PG in their franchise.

    No question. Elite PG for the Spurs, he right up there in this era behind Paul, D-Will, Kidd, and GP. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Simple. Back in the day when Garnett would outplay Duncan on the stat sheet in classic Wolves vs. Spurs game (albeit not my much) Tony Parker was always theX-factor or destroyed Minnesota. It's calmed down now since Minny is worthless, but I still [​IMG] when I see him torching other teams at times.

    Not yet. Manu needs more time. And coming off the bench all these years isn't helping him. He needs 38-40 minutes a game for a few seasons to put upnumbers on top of his playoff performances. imo

    Definitely number one. If he was at a bigger a city (LA, NY) there would already be talk about him being the best ever.

    I think that Tony Parker is a very one dimensional player who happened to be on a team with the one of the best coaches in NBA history, the best power forwardof all time and one of the best players of his generation in Manu.

    I don't even think the Spurs believe he is that good.
