Very... Probably the 2nd best PG in the league this year.

Players with 20+ PPG / 7.5+ APG / 53+ FG% seasons:

- Wilt (3)
- Magic
- Jordan
- Parker (if he maintains his current #'s)

CHange to 52% and you can add Larry Bird to the list.

Very underrated. Too bad he'll never get MVP consideration though because Stern hates the Spurs.

He tore DWill a new one yesterday.

I've had him on my fantasy team for the past two years. He's been doing that to everyone.

Easily a Top 3 PG this season. People completely forget about him.

Even with the age on that team, Parker continues to get the job done year in and year out.

Hall of Famer Tony Parker.

Elite player for a team that never won less then 50 games for his entire career. Starter for one champ and second best player for 2 champions, plus a Finals MVP.

Very underrated. He is a top 4 pg in the league. This year he is the best PG out there. When all of them are healthy he is the 2nd best Pure Point Guard only behind Chris Paul.

He's always been very good I would never confuse him for elite if he played for any other team though.

If he played for say the rumored Knicks before he signed the extension with San Antonio he'd be talked about above and beyond guys like Deron Williams. That's fine, I love him in San Antonio where we rattle out to the most unnoticed 40-12. He's a great player and has only gotten better.

Agreed. I usually don't like the overrated/underrated debates, because i feel they are rarely legit, but this one is right on, and I'll admit there are times where I underrate him. It's amazing that they've never won less than 50 games, I guess I've just become so numb to it. Not like he did it by himself,(another HOFer and one of the all time great 6th man would justifiably argue that) but this has really been his team for a couple years now, due to age/injury and just how good he's been. Efficiency has been off the charts, and his development and transformation as a player over his career is pretty remarkable.

And well those rings speak for themselves.
