The Spurs have a great coach and the leadership of Tim Duncan, who I think is probably the closet thing to Bill Russell this era has, but every since they have had Tony Parker they have been a tough match-up for damn near every team and his pick and roll with Duncan is a huge part of that.


they never have gotten rid of him either, despite rumors throughout the years.

But again, he has outplayed one of the better PGS in the league, his stats are phenomenal, he is a nightmare to defend, but he never really gets his due.


I'm oing to say right now, Tony Parker is better than Chris Paul, and I would also say that he is behind Kobe as the 4th best player in the world right now.

Above Melo and Chris and Dwight, below LeBron and Durant.


Where do you rank him?

Thats way to high and he is not better than Chris Paul.
Why???
Because if you were to throw Tony Parker on any team aside from the Spurs, he wouldn't be as successful.
The system, team, and chemistry the Spurs core (Duncan, Parker, and Manu) have built under Greg Poppovich are perfect.

When it comes to a TRUE point guard,1st: Chris Paul 2nd: Tony Parker.
But if I were to build a franchise (age doesn't matter), guys like D Rose, Kyrie Irving, and Rondo would be on the list above The Blur.

Yeah, in the last decade.
The only true point guards have been Nash, Kidd, and Parker.
Chris Paul can be thrown in the mix but it seems like the new breed of PG's are much more flashy and athletic.

Some may argue Rondo but his lack of a decent jump shot changes things.

You can't compare players that play different positions, it never works.

Amongst point guards he's second, behind Chris Paul, who should be the MVP this year, but he won't get it.

All time ranking you can't do wih players until their career is done.

And Massacre, don't dodge the profanity filter!

LOL, Tony Parker is far from a true PG. He's has been, is, and always will be a scoring PG.

PGs have been scorers for a long time now. even the 80s, except that many of them weren't good at finishing. Spud Webb,Zeke,Dennis Johnson,early Magic,

I mean all the guys who have averaged 17-20 points technically were scoring pgs

he has been a top 5-10 pg every year, for more then 10 years... dudes good...

but never been considered THE best, but, im sure if you looked at PG's since he came into the league, not many would have put up better numbers since he entered the league... Nash, and Jason Kidd (maybe)... and thats it

Lebron should be MVP and there's no argument for anyone else.

As for Parker, he's not better than CP3. Chris Paul is the best pure point guard of the era. Before him it was Nashty and JKidd. Also you guys are forgetting a former MVP...Derrick Rose.

I'd say the current point guard hierarchy is (when healthy)
1 CP
2 D-Rose
3 TP
4 Rondo
5 Uncle Drew

I'd take CP3 over Parker any day, but this season it's damn close.

Last time they met the frenchman destroyed CP3 with 31pts, 7ast on 12-16 attempts against CPs 4ps, 3ast, 3TOs on 1-6 shooting. 

 

If it wasn't for the Heat, who may end up with a better record, i'd pick Parker as the MVP.

After Tonys game last night is there still any doubt?
Tony Parker = Best PG in the NBA

 

I don't care about stats or exciting highlight plays that lead to shoe contracts and 1st round exists. What makes a PG great is his ability to control the games tempo through his team mates, take over at a blink of an eye and most importantly make the crucial clutch time decisions?
 

Interesting fact: If the Spurs win the Chip and Parker wins the Finals MVP, Tony will be the only player in NBA History to win Finals MVP 2x and never receive a League MVP Award voted by the press core geniuses.

 

That to me is both disgusting and hilarious.

No, that's still Chris Paul imo.

Agree with the rest though
