San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker can add another accolade to his great performance this NBA season.
Aside from being named an All-Star, a serious candidate for the NBA MVP award, TP has been named to the All-NBA second team today.
The All-NBA Second Team consists of guards Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs and Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, forwards Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers and Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and center Andrew Bynum of the Los Angeles Lakers.
TP picked up 367 points which earned him a place on the second-team. Parker also picked up 41 first place votes.
Parker was beat out by Chris Paul who was named to the All-NBA first team. You know, the same CP3 he outplayed in their semi finals series.
Interestingly enough, Russel Westbrook was also named to the second team and these two point guards will be squaring off Sunday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.
What do you have to say Spurs fans? Think TP should have been named to the first team?
Where is Timmy?
Timmy had a much better season than Kevin Love and Blake Griffin. Since.. you know... he actually helped his team WIN.
Man, I know Chris Paul is good, but I think he's overrated. Like Tony said in an aftergame interview, he's from San Antonio, and will not be looked at the same as Paul or Rose, but he likes it that way. So second fiddle is very apropos for any Spurs player....
