OK, you are obviously ******** because he is not one of the best PGs in NBA History. But he is an elite PG in the game today. Loser...:p

His wife, Eva's hot. Write that down and a pic or two might help if your teacher's a guy. Sorry for the ignorant post.

Well, you could list his stats, accomplishments etc. He has 3 rings, a Finals MVP, career high of 55 points etc. You could describe his game. He's a shoot-first PG. Decent passer, great penetrator, nice stroke, his mid-range game is pretty good. When he was drafted, his teammates and all that crap.

Do it on french fries or french toast. That's always popular.

Yeah, always insisting that people actually give credit to the people who originally researched and authored the ideas that students use in writing papers. Picky bastards.

Say that right now he is probably the most popular athlete in France. In France he represents success and is the idol of a lot of kids. He has 3 rings, he is married to a famous woman and he has a rap album (that actually sucks).
If you lived in France you would see how big he is there. I can tell you about it. It's actually annoying for me since, as a cavs fan, I can't forget about the 07 finals.

find an actual biography.... how are you gonna sight us?

I know he did an interview with Marice Dubois when he was a rookie and it was in French because he didnt speak good enough English or he just didn't want to, I dont know. Bottom line is he was relatively unknown back then and they probably asked a lot of good questions if you can understand it or get it translated.

Good luck.

learn how to spell and use proper grammar before you hand that in if you want to have a shot at getting a passing grade

Its suppose to sound bad in english because we cant use the future tense when changing it to french

Not to be dickish, but only to be helpful, nothing that you wrote in the top post needs to be said in any future tense. But you're mixing present and past tenses in an inconsistent way (present, past):

Bonsoir mon ami.

I know a little French, anyway..
Talk about the championships that he has won with details i.e best performances in the playoffs . Talk about basketball itself i.e the 82 game season. Talk about his struggles, when he first came into the league and the rumors that he would be traded to NJ for Kidd. It would make sense if you went in the order, backwards of what I listed, but if you can't get 5 paragraphs off of that, then damn you

You know that you didn't even list what team he played for right. You may want to start off the way you did, and then go on to tell a story of a boy who loved basketball. Next talk about his trouble adjusting to America, college(not sure if he went to one). Then Draft night, the spurs, his trouble with pop, his perseverance, and hard work paying off, his titles, his Finals MVP, and a few special facts. I.e (spurs never repeat)

GO to www.Wikipedia.com and type in tony Parker. Be careful not all the information is true, but it's not like your teacher will know though.

BEST OF LUCK, and double check everything before you turn it in.
