Tony Parker-France and San Antonio Spurs

Parker turned away from some much needed down time this summer to try and help France qualify for EuroBasket 2009 in Poland.  Though the French failed to qualify directly they did earn a spot in the Additional Qualifying Round, with Parker averaging 26.8 points, 2.3 assists and 1.8 steals per contest.  In the NBA Parker was once again a key to a deep playoff run for the San Antonio Spurs, averaging 18.8 points and 6.0 assists per game as the Spurs came up just short against the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.
