Parker scored 4 and 11 on 30 percent shooting vs the Clippers the two games prior. Did that hurt his MVP case like this one game boosts it?

Chris Webber on TNT earlier called Tim Duncan "the Godfather" of the Spurs and as a long time fan I completely agree with that label. That was in response to an interview in which Parker still see's Duncan as the leader.

Even if Duncan is not as athletic as Dwight Howard, Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, or Serge Ibaka, unlike them he's undoubtedly the captain and heart of his respective team. It's about him and always has been, since 1997. Not just in name, but in his game. He's playing amazing this season, in really great shape and very confident in his jump shot.

In saying that, it's tough to consider Parker (or Manu when he plays MVP-level ball) an MVP of the league in it's truest sense. Parker went off for 31 tonight but it's different than a 31 point game from Lebron or Durant if you just watch the Spurs go to work, with all their pieces falling into place every game (Duncan, Manu, Splitter, Kawhi, etc).

As Parker just said in his post game interview, "it's the whole team. It's not just me".

Not really, considering Tony Parker got off to a really slow start this season. And usually it's the second half of the season that counts more towards the end of season awards.


Lebron is the real MVP. But Tony Parker is the best player on the team with the best record, so he will get consideration.

Agree with pretty much everything but Bra Tony will get his MVP award because SPURS are Playing at a different level. So bottom line what Im trying to say is It dont matter what we think because the team with the Best Record will be receiving the MVP award and that will be SPURS.

maybe he will bra, maybe he won't?

The Spurs were up 98-93 against the Heat with 2 minutes left in a game... with Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili not even playing

That's a testament to this team.

As for "different level", it's tough to differentiate from the last couple seasons in which the Spurs dominated the regular season. I agree, they are playing great right now. It's awesome to watch. They look with-it defensively as much as offense. Danny Green in particular has some of the most quiet impactful games I've ever seen of any player.

and Tony played 28 minutes, and Manu played 17... and the Spurs routed the Clips.

The game was a blowout, and Duncan was one of the reasons as well as Parker's relentless attacking (which he's been doing it for years).. some of Parkers assists went to Duncan on the perimeter and it takes that symbiotic relationship to be successful. Duncan's midrange shot is fire this season.

I'd say Tony is the best player on the Spurs (most valuable), but Duncan is the "heart" and leader, and Ginobili adds a certain fire that is not easy to quantify.

If Derrick Rose, Dirk Nowitzki, and Steve Nash can win MVP's... Tony Parker can win MVP.


In the last month, most of it without Duncan or Ginobili, Parker carried the Spurs to #1 record in the NBA averaging 26/4/9 on 59/85% in 34mpg.

True but they were not going against the Juggernaut that is Lebron James who is having his most Complete all around season.

note:

about 10 days ago the Spurs beat the Bulls by 14 without Parker, Manu, and Stephen Jackson playing.

Forced the Bulls into 19 turnovers and held them to 2-12 from beyond the arch.

It'd be kinda salty and not right considering Lebron James is having one of the greatest seasons of all time. But if he did get it, I wouldn't be too shocked. If Durant got it, it'd be a travesty IMO. But Parker has been extraordinary this season.
