I've said it before that when The Big Fundamental leaves, the team will belong to one William Anthony Parker. But we all know that Tim Duncan has been the face of the franchise for the past 12 years. While reading this article the question came up and I found myself pondering it for some time. In the article it says "It’s hard to tell how much of his success stems from having Duncan (and Manu Ginobili) on his team." and even though I think Tony is a great player who is well deserving of all his success, I still think it's a fair statement to make. I think that, with help, Tony Parker is perfectly capable of continuing the success that Spurs fans have come to expect. He showed me that he is capable of leading a good team with his play this last season. However, it's always good to get a second opinion. So I'm asking the faithful PTR members.
Can Tony Parker be the franchise player after Tim Duncan retires?
