Don't look now, but here comes America's least favorite team. Again.
With less than 3 weeks until the playoffs, the San Antonio Spurs are clinging to the second seed in the Western Conference. Pretty remarkable considering all the injuries the team has faced this season. Of course this is the team that draws low television ratings, gets all the calls down the stretch (Hello Manu Ginobli), and is just a fundamentally sound basketball team. So of course no one wants to watch them.
But, they are the team of the past decade.
And it all starts with the Big 3. And no one was bigger last week than Point Guard Tony Parker.
Parker was the leader as he helped the Spurs go 3-1 last week and regain the second seed.
Last Wednesday at Atlanta (3/25), Parker led the Spurs to a 102-92 victory...Without Tim Duncan!
Here's Parker's line for that night:
42 points, 10 assists and 3 boards.
For the week, Parker averaged 27.5 points and 8.25 dimes.
Can you believe people actually don't care to watch this team when you can see Eva Longaria every night out!
