Tony Parker Interview by Slam Online

I came across this piece on the internet. This is an interview conducted by Adam Figman of Slam Online on Tony Parker. I'm pretty sure a lot of you here on PtR haven't read this piece so I thought of creating this fanpost.

Hereunder is an excerpt from the article. I hope I am not violating any rules here, though.

SLAM: You’re averaging more assists per game right now than at any other point in your career, but you’ve played on some amazing squads, so it’s not like you’re alongside better teammates. How do you explain the spike in assists?

TP: Because, back in the day—and don’t get me wrong, Timmy’s having a great season—but when Timmy was MVP, the ball was going inside a lot more. So Timmy had the ball 80 percent of the time. And as Manu became Manu, I had to share with Manu, and half of the time Manu had the ball. And Manu is a great passer, so he’ll get a lot of assists. This year Manu missed almost the whole season, so the ball is in my hands all the time, so that’s why I’m getting more assists this year, because [the ball is] less in Timmy and Manu’s hands.

SLAM: As a basketball player, how you would like to be remembered? What do you want your legacy to be?

TP: As a winner. A winner, and a guy who won Championships.

SLAM: How long do you see yourself playing?

TP: I would like to do it like Steve Nash—I wanna play a long time. I love basketball. I’m very passionate about it; I’m very blessed and lucky every day. I want to play until I’m like 37, 38, like Jason Kidd and Steve Nash. I want to do the same thing.
