San Antonio at Orlando, Final Score: Kawhi hits game-winner in 98-96 win

The Spurs come back to win in Orlando, thanks to a cold-blooded dagger from Kawhi Leonard. Tim Duncan returned after missing eight straight with right knee soreness, but this time it was a different future Hall of Famer that sat out of the starting line-up; Tony Parker. Parker suffered an ankle injury on Tuesday night against Miami, and Ray McCallum took his spot. Missed shot, missed shot, turnover, missed shot, missed shot, missed shot - This is how the Spurs began the game offensively in Orlando. Luckily, the Magic opened the game missing five of their first six shots, which just...

LeBron James swats Tony Parker's shot off the court

LeBron swatted a Tony Parker layup into the stands. The current version of LeBron James is one that isn't always great on defense. Against the San Antonio Spurs, however, we saw LeBron going after it. The result? LeBron blocking Tony Parker's shot off the court. This was vintage LeBron. He waited for Parker to enter the lane and pounced at just the right time. H/T Jared Mueller

Tony Parker is the 58th greatest player of all time, according to ESPN

The Spurs are filling up this list pretty quickly. As I'm sure you've heard, ESPN is counting down the top 100 players of all time.

Sometimes you're the punching bag, sometimes you throw the punches

Following a nasty loss to the Golden State Warriors, the San Antonio Spurs took out their frustration on the Houston Rockets. When I was growing up, my family had a little makeshift dojo in our garage. It had a old, worn-out mat, some punching bags and manikins, and even some nun-chucks if you wanted to practice your skills. My father was a black-belt in jiu-jitsu, and helped train at a local gym, so he created a space for himself to work on his craft, It also came in handy in using it to drain energy from a rambunctious little kid that never wanted to go to sleep on time. As I grew...

Tony Parker to sit out Suns game with sore hip

Tony Parker will be sidelined on Thursday when the Spurs take on the Suns The Spurs announced on Wednesday that Tony Parker will sit out against the Phoenix Suns on Thursday with a sore right hip. Parker left the game in the fourth quarter against Dallas on Sunday and did not return, after he missed two games recently with a similar injury. There is no timetable set for his return, but my guess would be that he's sitting out one game of this upcoming back-to-back in order to rest his hip for the much anticipated matchup against the Warriors on Monday.

Power Rankings, Week 12: Tony Parker leads the Spurs in their march to the top

As the Spurs continue to dominate the league at large, Tony Parker's resurgence cannot be ignored. Sometimes a classic gets a fresh coat of paint and a new lease on life. Case in point, the 1967 Renault Caravelle, of which fewer than 3000 were ever made. Quelle surprise !

With Kawhi and LaMarcus in town, Tony Parker is thinking about extending his career

Tony Parker explains that with Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge in San Antonio, it makes it that more difficult for him to retire. The Spurs have always been considered more than just a team.

Parker's shows what he's still capable of against the Cavaliers

The Spurs survived an ice-cold start, rallying behind Tony Parker's phenomenal play to close within 6 at half. San Antonio found their rhythm after the break, stifling the hot-shooting Cavs and putting up 59 second half points to claim the big win. Spurs 99, Cavaliers 95 - Jan 14, '16 Remember when everyone (self included) thought Tony Parker was just about done? Maybe good for an occasional scoring outburst and some assists, but probably the weakest link in the starting lineup? I've never been more glad to have been more wrong. Instead, Tony Parker has turned back the clock in a big...
