Early life[edit] Parker was born in Bruges, Belgium, and raised in France.[3][4] His father, Tony Parker
Tony Parker
Sr., an African American, played basketball at Loyola University Chicago

as well as professionally overseas.[5][6] His mother, Pamela Firestone, is a Dutch model.[4] Parker's great-uncle Jan Wienese
Jan Wienese
is an Olympic gold medalist in rowing.[7] Parker enjoyed close relationships with his brothers, and they would often attend their father's basketball games together.[8] At first, Parker was more interested in football, but after watching the evolution of Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan
into a global basketball superstar during summer trips to his father's native city of Chicago, he changed his mind.[9] Parker's two younger brothers were also heavily involved in basketball; T.J. and Pierre would go on to play basketball at college and professional levels.[4] As Parker built his skill, he played the point guard position, recognizing that his speed and agility made this position ideal for him.[9] He was eventually asked to attend the INSEP in Paris.[10] After playing in the French amateur leagues for two seasons, Parker turned professional and signed with Paris
Paris
Basket Racing in 1999.[4] In the summer of 2000, Parker was invited to the Nike Hoop Summit
Nike Hoop Summit
in Indianapolis. In a contest between the American and European All-Stars, Parker recorded 20 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.[11] The Frenchman's performance prompted a recruiting war among several colleges, including UCLA

and Georgia Tech.[11] Parker decided to forgo the NCAA

and to remain in France; he spent the next year with Paris

(2001–present)[edit] First championship[edit]

"...when we gave him his first workout, we didn't think he was tough enough – and we sent him home. And then we set up another interview, another workout... and he was fantastic in that one."

-Gregg Popovich, after the 2007 championship[12]

Before the 2001 NBA draft, Parker was invited to the San Antonio Spurs' summer camp. Coach Gregg Popovich
Gregg Popovich
had him play against Spurs scout and ex-NBA player Lance Blanks. Parker was overwhelmed by Blank's tough and physical defense, and Popovich was ready to send him away after just 10 minutes.[13] But after seeing a "best of" mix tape of Parker's best plays, Popovich decided to invite Parker a second time.[11] This time, Parker made a better impression against Blanks; the Frenchman later described Blanks as a "one-man wrecking crew".[13] But while Popovich decided that Parker was worth the gamble, the Spurs still had to hope that other teams would not pick Parker during the draft. Parker's name was barely mentioned in the pre-draft predictions, and the point guard was drafted 28th overall by the Spurs on draft day.[11] After initially playing backup to Antonio Daniels,[11] Parker became a starter and made 77 regular-season appearances in his rookie season, averaging 9.2 points, 4.3 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 29.4 minutes per game.[4] When he played against the Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles Clippers
on 30 November 2001, he became the third French player to play in an NBA game, after Tariq Abdul-Wahad
Tariq Abdul-Wahad
and Jérôme Moïso.[14] By the end of the season, the rookie led San Antonio
San Antonio
in assists and steals, and was named to the All-Rookie First Team for 2001–02, becoming the first foreign-born guard to earn the honor.[4] In 2002–03, Parker played in all 82 regular-season games as San Antonio's starting point guard[15] on a team that was largely revamped from previous years.[11] He improved his regular season statistics, averaging 15.5 points per game (ppg), 5.3 assists per game (apg) and 2.6 rebounds per game (rpg).[15] Parker's role as the team's playmaker was reflected in his leading the team in assists on 49 occasions.[4] During the 2003 NBA All-Star
NBA All-Star
Weekend, Parker represented the Sophomores in the Rookie Challenge, and also participated in the inaugural Skills Challenge.[4] In the post season, the Spurs, led by Tim Duncan, defeated the New Jersey Nets
New Jersey Nets
4–2 in the finals, and Parker earned his first NBA championship ring.[16] Despite the victory, Parker struggled with inconsistent play throughout the playoffs, and was often substituted for the more experienced guards Steve Kerr

and Speedy Claxton
Speedy Claxton
late in the games.[13] Second championship[edit] Despite winning a championship with the Spurs, doubts lingered over Parker's future. The Spurs had attempted and failed to acquire New Jersey Nets' Jason Kidd, but Parker told coach Popovich that he wanted to be San Antonio's starting point guard.[17] Parker played well during the regular season, recording 14.7 ppg, 5.5 apg and 3.2 rpg.[15] However, the Spurs were defeated by the Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Lakers
in the Western Conference semi-finals in the 2004 NBA Playoffs, and were denied back-to-back titles.[11] During the 2004–05 season, Parker recorded improved regular season statistics, tallying 16.6 ppg, 6.1 apg and a career-high 3.7 rpg.[15] He was also ranked 13th in the league in total assists, and was third among point guards in field goal percentage.[4] The Spurs were strong in the playoffs, and Parker was instrumental in the victories over the Denver Nuggets, Seattle SuperSonics
Seattle SuperSonics
and Phoenix Suns.[11] However, Parker struggled in the Finals series against the Detroit Pistons. Spurs colleagues Manu Ginóbili
Manu Ginóbili
and Brent Barry
Brent Barry
often took over playmaking duties as Parker was unable to perform as well as he did in the regular season.[13] Nevertheless, the Spurs won their third ever NBA championship by defeating the defending champions 4–3 in the 2005 NBA Finals.[16]

"He told me, 'Coach, I'll play in the NBA and, one day, France
France
will recognize me as a great player'. It's incredible how, at 18 years old, he could have such confidence. I thought he could play in the NBA, but not that he would become a player of the importance he is today."

-Claude Bergeaud, who coached Parker on the French junior team[6]

Third championship[edit]

Parker was selected for the first time in his career an NBA All-Star for the 2005–06 season[18] as he managed 18.9 ppg and an impressive .548 in field goal percentage.[15] Parker's scoring average was even higher than Duncan's,[19] and his form propelled the Spurs to a 63–19 win–loss record and qualification for the 2006 NBA Playoffs. However, the top-seeded Spurs were again unable to win back-to-back titles as they were eliminated in the second round by the Dallas Mavericks.[20] On 14 February 2007, after delivering consistent numbers in the first half of the 2006–07 season, Parker was selected to play in the 2007 NBA All-Star

Game as a reserve guard.[21] With Parker operating as the starting point guard in the 2006–07 season, the Spurs qualified for the 2007 NBA Playoffs

and finished second in the Southwest Division.[22] In the Western Conference Semifinals, the Spurs met the Phoenix Suns

Steve Nash. After eliminating the Suns, the Spurs defeated the Utah Jazz

4–1 to win the Western Conference Finals.[23] Parker and the Spurs went on to face the Cleveland Cavaliers

and swept them 4–0 to win the 2007 NBA Finals.[24] In this series, Parker consistently outplayed his Cavaliers counterparts Daniel Gibson

and All-Defensive Team member Larry Hughes

and scored a series-high 24.5 points, accompanied by a high field goal percentage of 56.8% and of 57.1% from three-point range.[13] For his performances, he was named the 2007 NBA Finals MVP,[24] becoming the first European-born player to receive the award.[6] Falling short[edit]

"When there is talk about the best point guards, sometimes they don't talk about me. But that's not my main motivation. They can talk about Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Deron Williams and Chris Paul. I still have the most rings."

-Tony Parker[25]

In the 2007–08 regular season, Parker recorded similar averages as the previous two seasons for points and rebounds, and slightly increased his assists per game average.[15] The Spurs finished third in the Western Conference and faced the Phoenix Suns
Phoenix Suns
in the first round of the 2008 NBA Playoffs. For the third time in four years, San Antonio prevailed over Phoenix; Parker had an outstanding first round series, averaging nearly 30 points and 7 assists a game.[26] In the next round against Chris Paul's New Orleans Hornets, the Spurs dropped the first two road games before responding with a strong win in the third game. In that game, Parker recorded a double-double with 31 points and 11 assists.[27] The experienced Spurs took seven games to defeat the Hornets, but were unable to get past the Los Angeles Lakers in the Conference Finals, and the Spurs once again failed to capture back-to-back NBA championships.[28] San Antonio
San Antonio
got off to a rocky start in their 2008–09 NBA season, losing the first three contests. In their fourth game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, however, Parker scored a career-high 55 points to lead the Spurs to their first victory of the campaign.[29] The Spurs recovered soon enough, and approached the All-Star break ranked second in the Conference. With Parker averaging a career-high in points per game, he was named as a reserve for the 2009 All-Star game.[30] The Spurs were without influential shooting guard Ginóbili for much for the season, and greater responsibility fell on Parker's shoulders. He helped lead the team to a 54–28 record and the third seed for the playoffs,[31] In Game 4 of the first round against Dallas, Parker matched George Gervin's franchise playoff record for points in a half with 31.[32] However, the Spurs eventually lost 4–1, bowing out of the playoffs in the first round for the first time since 2000.[33] Parker's 28.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game broke his previous playoffs career-best averages of 22.4 points and 3.7 rebounds.[15] On 13 May 2009, he was named to the All-NBA
All-NBA
Third Team.[34]

During the 2011–12 NBA season, Parker helped the Spurs reach the best record in the West for the second straight season; the team tied the Chicago
Chicago
Bulls for the best overall record in the league. On 4 February 2012, Parker became the all-time assist leader of the franchise with 4,477, surpassing Avery Johnson, adding 42 points in a victory against Oklahoma City Thunder.[35] The Spurs secured their 13th straight 50 win season despite the lockout (a new NBA record), and Parker received his fourth All-Star nod. He finished fifth in MVP award voting, receiving four first-place votes. Late in the season, the Spurs signed Parker's longtime friend Boris Diaw, who was claimed off waivers from the Charlotte Bobcats. In the 2012 NBA Playoffs, Parker averaged 20.1 points and 6.8 assists as the Spurs swept through the first two rounds, defeating the Utah Jazz
Utah Jazz
and the Los Angeles Clippers. In the Western Conference Finals the Spurs faced the young Oklahoma City Thunder. After winning Game 1 and Game 2, 101–98 and 120–111 respectively, and taking a 2–0 series lead, the Spurs lost four consecutive games, thus losing the series 4–2. In their second game of the 2012–13 season, the Spurs faced the Thunder in a rematch of the previous Western Conference Finals, and Parker hit a game-winner to secure a win for the Spurs. On 10 December 2012, Parker got his first career triple-double after 825 regular season games against the Houston Rockets
Houston Rockets
in overtime with 27 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists. He was the 4th player in NBA history to have gone 800 games or more into their career before their first triple-double, joining Karl Malone

(860), Patrick Ewing

(834), and Cedric Maxwell (824).[36] Parker was named Western Conference Player of the Month for the month of January 2013 for leading the Spurs to a 12–3 record, and the best record in the NBA. He averaged 21.9 points per game and 7.9 assists per game that month while shooting 56.3% from the field. He became the first Spurs player to receive the honor since Tim Duncan

in April 2002.[37] On May 21, 2013, Parker recorded a career high 18 assists to go with 15 points in the Spurs' Western Conference finals game 2 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.[38] In game 1 of the 2013 NBA Finals
2013 NBA Finals
against the defending champion Miami Heat, Parker hit a clutch jump shot off the glass with 5.2 seconds remaining in the game, securing a 92–88 victory for San Antonio. The Spurs eventually lost the series in seven games. Fourth championship[edit] On May 2014, Tony Parker

Chasing the fifth championship[edit] On August 1, 2014, Parker signed a three-year, $43.3 million contract extension with the Spurs.[39][40] The Spurs finished the 2014–15 season with a 55–27 record, but lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles Clippers
in seven games. Parker struggled in the playoffs due to injury and averaged 10.9 points a game on 36% shooting. In the 2015–16 season, Parker helped the Spurs win a franchise-best 67 games while averaging 11.9 points per game. In the 2016 playoffs, the Spurs swept the Memphis Grizzlies
Memphis Grizzlies
in the first round, but were eliminated in the second round by the Oklahoma City Thunder
Oklahoma City Thunder
in six games. Heading into the 2016–17 season, Parker lost longtime teammate Tim Duncan to retirement. The Spurs finished the season with a 61–21 record, as they registered back-to-back 60-win seasons for the first time in franchise history. Parker played 63 games and averaged 10.1 points per game, his lowest average since his rookie season. In the 2017 playoffs, the Spurs were once again matched with the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round. San Antonio
San Antonio
again defeated Memphis 4–2, with Parker averaging 16.3 points per game in the series. After scoring 18 points in Game 2 of the second round, a win against the Houston Rockets, Parker left the game with a rupture of his left quadriceps tendon that ended his season.[41][42][43] Game 3 of the series marked San Antonio's first postseason game without Parker since 2001, which ended an NBA record of 221 straight playoff appearances for Parker.[44] The injury required surgery and led some to speculate Parker could miss significant time, if he came back at all.[45] On November 27, 2017, in a 115–108 win over the Dallas Mavericks, Parker had six points and four assists in 14 minutes in his first appearance since tearing his quadriceps tendon.[45] On November 29, Parker had 10 points and five assists while playing 18 minutes in his second game back.[46] ASVEL (2011)[edit] During the 2011 NBA lockout, Parker signed with ASVEL, the team in which he owns a stake.[47] However, unlike other players who signed lucrative contract overseas during the lockout, Parker opted to play in his home country for minimum wage.[48] Parker, who in the summer had received a four-year contract extension from the Spurs worth over $50 million,[49] received only $2,000 per month from ASVEL.[47] He also paid his own insurance, which reportedly cost $250,000 for three months.[47] International career[edit]

Parker played for France's Junior National Teams at the 1997 FIBA Europe Under-16 Championship, both the 1998 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship and the 2000 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship, and the 2002 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship. He was elected the Most Valuable Player of the 2000 FIBA Europe Under-18 Championship, when France

captured the gold medal, as he averaged 14.4 points and 2.5 assists per game.[11][50][51] Parker averaged 25.8 points, 6.8 assists, and 6.8 steals per game at the 2002 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship.[4][50] With the French senior national team, Parker has played in the 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013 FIBA EuroBaskets. France

Player profile[edit] Standing at 6 feet 2 inches tall (1.88 m) and weighing 185 pounds (84 kg), Parker plays the point guard position and has established himself as a potent offensive player. Voted by his peers in a 2007 poll as one of the quickest players in the NBA,[61] he often slashes to the basket for a layup or teardrop shot. Despite his relatively small size for a basketball player, he led the league in "points in the paint" for a large portion of the 2005–06 season. In the initial part of his NBA career, Parker was still considered an erratic shooter of the ball and during the 2005 off-season, Coach Popovich decided to work on this aspect of his play. Spurs shooting coach Chip Engelland[13] forbade Parker to shoot any three-point shots, and among others, corrected his shooting motion and his thumb position. As a result, by the 2006–07 season, Parker had reduced his three-point shots by 117 while shooting 147 more normal field goal attempts compared to 2005, and his accuracy rose by 4% (field goals and three-point shots) and he was able to connect on 78% of his free throws that season.[13] Parker's field goal percentage is also high for a point guard, and his speed also makes him a fast break player. However, his style of play has had adverse effects on his knees (tendinitis).[62] Honors[edit]

Off the court[edit] ASVEL[edit] In 2009, Parker bought a 20 percent stake in the French basketball club ASVEL, located in Lyon, and held the ceremonial title of Vice President of Basketball
Basketball
Operations. During the 2011 NBA lockout, Parker signed to play for ASVEL, for the French League's minimum wage, until the lockout ended. In 2014, Parker became the majority shareholder of the club, and is now the president of the team.[65] In September 2015, Parker announced the launch of his own basketball academy in the city of Lyon.[66] On July 12, 2016, he and his business partners published the plans for the construction of a new arena in Villeurbanne, which will become ASVEL's new home court.[67] Lyon
Lyon
Basket[edit] In March 2017, it was announced that Parker has become the majority shareholder of Lyon
Lyon
Basket Féminine, a member of the French women's basketball league, and that he would also take over as chairman of the club at the conclusion of the fiscal year 2016–17.[68] Family life[edit]

Parker with Eva Longoria

at the 2008 Emmy Awards

Parker's parents continue to remain influential in his life even after their divorce. His mother, a health-food coach, gives him tips on healthy eating, while he discusses his performance after each game with his father over the phone.[8] Parker met actress Eva Longoria, seven years his senior, in November 2004. In August 2005, Longoria confirmed she and Parker were dating, and on 30 November 2006, the couple became engaged.[69] Longoria, a Texas
Texas
native from nearby Corpus Christi, was a courtside regular at Spurs home games. Parker was quoted during the 2007 NBA All-Star
NBA All-Star
Game saying that, "Eva is doing everything, I'm just going to show up and say yes." They were officially married in a civil service on 6 July 2007, at a Paris
Paris
city hall. It was followed by a full Roman Catholic wedding ceremony at the Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois
Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois
Church in Paris, France, on 7 July 2007.[70] Fellow Frenchman NBA player (and future teammate) Boris Diaw
Boris Diaw
was Parker's best man for the wedding.

Parker and Longoria at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival

In December 2007, tabloid websites and magazines reported that Parker had been having an extramarital affair with supposed model Alexandra Paressant. Both Parker and Longoria vehemently denied these allegations through their spokespeople, saying "All high profile couples fall victim to these sorts of things in the course of their relationships. It appears that this is not the first time this woman has used an athlete to gain public notoriety."[71] Parker initiated a $20 million lawsuit against the website that first reported the story, which later issued a full retraction and an apology, stating "X17online.com and X7 [sic], Inc. regret having been misled by Ms. Paressant and her representatives and apologize to Mr. Parker for any damage or inconvenience this may have caused him or his wife."[72] On 17 November 2010, Longoria filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing "irreconcilable differences",[73] and seeking spousal support from Parker.[74] The couple had a prenuptial agreement that was signed in June 2007, the month before their wedding, and amended two years later in June 2009.[75] Longoria believed that Parker had been cheating on her with another woman;[76] Extra identified the other woman as Erin Barry, the wife of Brent Barry, Parker's former teammate, and revealed that the Barrys were also in the midst of a divorce.[77] On 19 November 2010, Parker filed for divorce from Longoria in Bexar County, Texas[78] on the grounds of "discord or conflict of personalities", thus establishing a legal battle over where the divorce case would be heard. Unlike Longoria's divorce petition, Parker's did not mention a prenuptial agreement and claimed that the parties "will enter into an agreement for the division of their estate".[79] The divorce was finalized in Texas
Texas
on 28 January 2011, the same day Longoria's lawyer filed papers to dismiss her Los Angeles petition.[80] Parker began dating French journalist Axelle Francine in 2011. In June 2013, it was reported that the couple got engaged.[81] Parker and Axelle Francine married on August 2, 2014.[82] They have two sons, Josh Parker, born in April 2014, and Liam Parker, born in July 2016.[83][84] Philanthropy[edit] In the field of philanthropy, Parker donates a block of 20 tickets for each home game to underprivileged youth.[4] Parker is also the first ambassador for Make-A-Wish France.[85] The Foundation is a non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. On his personal website, Parker states: "I already knew Make-A-Wish as it is very famous around the world and I have previously taken part in the granting of wishes by meeting children and their families. I decided to commit to working with Make-A-Wish France
France
when I understood the true dedication there and I realized that I could help to grant as many wishes as possible."[85] Music[edit] Parker is an avid fan of hip-hop music and rap. He has released a French hip-hop album titled TP with producer Polygrafic (Sound Scientists). The album features collaborations with various artists including Booba, Don Choa, Eloquence, Eddie B, Jamie Foxx, K-Reen, Rickwel and Soprano. The singles taken from the album include:

Paris
bid for the 2012 Summer Olympics. His reaction to London's successful bid was: "I don't know what else we could have done. If we don't have it now, I guess we will never get it. The IOC seems to be very pro-Anglo-Saxon. I feel extremely gutted."[93] Parker has a well-known friendship with compatriot footballer Thierry Henry. The two were often seen together at some of Parker's NBA games. Parker was seen with his wife at Euro 2008
Euro 2008
during one of France's matches. In 2012, Parker and his brothers opened a nightclub, Nueve Lounge, in San Antonio.[94] However, the business closed down within a year.[95] Nightclub injury[edit] Parker was injured while present at the W.I.P nightclub in the SoHo district of New York City when a brawl broke out between entertainers Chris Brown and Drake.[96] Parker filed a $20 million suit against the night club.[97] Parker risked missing the 2012 Summer Olympics
