First, there was Tony Parker’s autobiography, Beyond All My Dreams, which came out in November 2020. Now, the Spurs legend opening up about his life even more in his documentary “The Final Shot”, which made its debut on streaming service Netflix today. The synopsis reads as follows:
”How do you become one of the greatest players in French basketball? ‘The Final Shot’, a retrospective documentary of Tony Parker’s career, with interviews of Kobe Bryant, Thierry Henry, David Robinson, and many others.”
(Note that the trailer above is from the Netflix France, hence the French subtitles, but I double checked on my Netflix here in Texas, and it has English subtitles, and the French is dubbed in English. Ironically, Tony is not the one who dubs himself.)
From watching the trailer, some of the “others” listed in the synopsis include Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan, Bruce Bowen, and Terry Porter. It details his journey from growing up in France while being considered too small to be taken seriously in the basketball world, to becoming both an NBA and French star, as well as the hardships along the way, such as recovering from a potentially career-ending torn quad.
The whole thing is about 98 minutes long, so be sure to check it out when you have the time!
