While thinking of great duos, and reading other people’s lists, I realized something: we all take Tim Duncan and Tony Parker for granted. Whenever a Spurs duo comes up, it’s always Duncan and Robinson. I get it, they put up some very nice numbers and won two championships in 6 years. One of those titles (2003) included Parker as well, and he averaged 15.5 PPG and 5.3 APG that season. Not bad. The Duncan and Parker duo is 4-1 in finals appearances, with their only loss coming to the Heat in 2013, a series they gave away down the stretch. They made up for it last year, dominating the Heat in 5. I believe we all understand how good Duncan is, but I feel I need to sell Parker. His importance to the Spurs cannot be accurately shown through stats. With Parker battling injuries this season, the effect has been clear on the Spurs. Let’s not forget that Parker was the finals MVP in 2007 against the LeBron led Cavs. I believe this is one of the most underrated duos in NBA history.
