Top 50 NBA Players 2010
A glance at players 11-50.
No. 30 Tony Parker
Parker continues to be defined by others in his adulthood: Duncan, Popovich, Longoria. When his current contract expires, though, he will receive his first true opportunity to establish his own identity by selecting a new team where others can wrap themselves around his needs.
Therefore, he doesn’t play this season just for financial security; he must stay thrive to regain his status as a premier free agent and claim some semblance of control over his own destiny. Otherwise, another round of injuries could force him to take whatever is offered by the Spurs and remain Tim Duncan’s point guard.
