Most NBA players have a go-to shot whether it the bank-shot a la Tim Duncan or the "sky hook" made famous by Kareem Abdul Jabbar. For San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker it has been the "teardrop" shot.
Since arriving in the NBA at the ripe old age of 19, TP has been going to the shot whenever he gets into the lane.
He drives, lofts it high, has the ball sail over the big men in the paint with a high arc for the basket. For years, he has tormented shot-blockers with the teardrop that many fans associate his with the move.
Currently, Parker and Stephen Curry are fighting it out in the West semifinals and both have effective teardrop shots, however, Parker will like to let you know, he is the originator of the move.no comments
