Default Parker is shooting 38.8% without Duncan

Yes, it's only been two games. But the inevitable has already exposed itself, Tony is not the kind of player who can "walk into the lane" without the force Duncan imposes. Parker suddenly becomes an above average guard without the BPTL in front of him.

Furthermore, I think it's been established that Ginobili is the only other guy on the team that can seriously make plays happen. Parker is nothing but a third option on just about any team; give him an entire season without Duncan, the guy won't break 44%.

Explain why this is flawed.

I've explained at the beginning of the season, if duncan is gone, Parker will suddenly go cold.

It happened, go figure.

Well I guess its flawed because by that same logic Manu Ginobili would be MVP..

Explain why this is flawed.

Spurs are 2-0 without Duncan. In essence, Spurs would still win 82 games without Duncan in the regular season. Explain why this is flawed. Once you can explain this, you will be able to explain why your own reasoning is flawed...

He also had 27 points and 8 assists on 73% FG the game that Duncan left in the first and never came back.

He's playing like a top-tier guard in the last two games. But no one predicted he was going to breakout without Duncan.

Did you see the game? Portland was so incredibly weak inside (already getting blown out after the first quarter), there was no excuse for Tony to not expose them. I didn't say he was "bad", I said he won't shoot near 50% on a season without Duncan.

This is just glaringly ironic. But I'll respond anyway: Best player in the league

Actually any1 that followed Manu this year could see that coming..And if were judging y 2 games if Manu keep up that pace he would be a top 7 player in the league.. The point is judging from a 2 game stretch is dumb

Did Parker **** your mom or something? Where did all this hate stem from? Not disagreeing with you, just curious.
