Tony Parker and Spanish national team are class acts in victory and defeat

The Wee Frenchman had some high praise for the Spaniards after their convincing victory over France, and the Spanish head coach offered praise of his own. Tony Parker's career with the French national team came to an end yesterday as Spain eliminated France in the Olympic quarterfinals by an eye-popping final score of 92-67. Parker's international career concluded on the same day as Spurs teammate Manu Ginobili's, whose stellar run with the Argentinian national team ended with a quarterfinals loss to Team USA. Both legends announced their retirement from their respective national teams...

Rio 2016: Spain rout France, 92-67, Tony Parker retires from international play

In a lopsided quarterfinal, Les Bleus fell to rivals Spain. New Spur Pau Gasol kept his medal hopes alive while Tony Parker bid farewell to a team that's formed a major part of his basketball playing career. On the same day that Manu Ginobili played his last game for Argentina, Tony Parker was unable to keep his pursuit of an Olympic medal alive as France lost to Spain, 92-67. As with Manu, Tony announced this would be his last game in his national team jersey. The game was the sixth meeting between the European squads since 2011, but it wasn't the climactic affair one might've hoped for...

The Boomers surged past the overmatched Lithuanians, keeping their medal aspirations alive and well. Stop me if you've heard this one before during these Olympics: Patty Mills shoots the lights out for Australia. Rinse. Lather. Repeat. The Spurs' Tasmanian Devil of a point guard sniped his opponent to death once again while enjoying major contributions from his teammates as Australia blew Lithuania out of the building (and the Olympics) by a final score of 90-64. The aforementioned Sir Patrick Thrillingston led the way with 24 points followed by 16 points from ex-Spur Aron Baynes and 15...

The Downbeat #1967: Diaw, France come back to beat Serbia

AllThatAmar It’s summer. It’s slow. But at least there’s the Olympics to get a preview of what one of our new Jazzmen is able to do. Boris Diaw has been a Swiss army knife built for Olympic play. Today was no exception as Boris Diaw almost got a Triple Double by totaling 11 points, 9 assists, and 9 rebounds in today’s CLOSE win over Serbia which France won 76-75. Rudy Gobert also played great. While he was limited on offense he had a +16 +/- and had 3 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 blocks. Tony Parker put France ahead with 31 seconds left and France’s defense...

Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Pau Gasol and more Spurs players gear up for 2016 Olympics

The Spurs are extremely well represented in the Rio Olympic games. The Spurs have always been an internationally savvy bunch. However, never has that been more apparent than this year, as they currently have five (5!!) players under contract who will be playing in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. None, not a single one, of those players play for Team USA. Good luck @manuginobili & @patitogarino @Patty_Mills @tonyparker @paugasol » https://t.co/c8UwrDC81D pic.twitter.com/FOaSa4IiDF— San Antonio Spurs (@spurs) August 5, 2016 Manu Ginobili and Patricio Garino will be...

Tony Parker is still good enough for the Spurs

Guest video analyst Dane Carbaugh tackles what Tony Parker still brings to the table that might not show up in the box score. It's a changing of the guard in San Antonio with Tim Duncan gone, and at 34 years old the Spurs still need Tony Parker to produce at a high level for the team to contend. Confidence from fans has wavered on the six-time all-star, and there's some cause for concern. His advanced assist numbers and scoring are down from prior seasons, and his turnover percentage rose minimally despite a decrease in usage. But Parker is still one of the most valuable players to...
