The best international player in the history of each franchise

San Antonio Spurs

Tony Parker, France

Six All-Star appearances, four-time All-NBA-Team member, four titles and one NBA Finals MVP trophy, there’s little Tony Parker hasn’t accomplished with the San Antonio Spurs.

The French point guard has played multiple roles under Gregg Popovich: that of focal point, that of role player, that of mentor and, always, that of floor general.

Parker has spent his entire 17-year career with San Antonio. He ranks first in assists in Spurs history, fifth in free throws made and fourth in points.

Of course, San Antonio has more than one all-time great international player in their history. We would be remiss not to mention the legendary Argentinian, Manu Ginobili, as well.

Like Parker, Ginobili has spent his entire career with the Spurs. Multiple championships, All-Star Games and All-NBA appearances also adorn his resume, and without the crafty lefty, the Spurs may not have reached the vast heights they did.
