Until his injury woes during the 2nd half of the season, Tony Parker was in the NBA MVP discussion. Now, that he has dominated ANOTHER playoff series and is the catalyst for the Spurs offense and navigator of game pace, it's time to declare what many of us feel already, that Parker is the NBA's best point guard!
I know that Chris Paul is great and has the State Farm commercials, but CP3 hasn't won anything. Parker is more than his match in one-on-one match-ups. Westbrook is great because he's blessed with extraordinary athleticism, length and has a great motor, but Parker has the superior basketball IQ and decision-making, Can we shut-up about a past-his-prime Steve Nash? Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, Damian Lillard are all wonderful players that gave the Spurs fits but not good enough to carry a veteran team for a season like Parker.
Parker himself says he doesn't care about the comparisons anymore, but I've just gotten tired of consistently hearing other point guards mentioned BEFORE him, when he has the wins and championship pedigree to have EARNED the respect to be called the best point guard in the NBA.
