“A French point guard, a guard from Argentina (Manu), a guy from the islands (Duncan), barefoot, playing together,” Parker said during his ceremony. “That was a hell of a Big Three.
Those two guys, obviously, a group over the years, and if I had to start any team you know I’d want to go to war with you two guys. It was an honor to play together.” “You have no idea how much impact you two had in my life. You inspired me every day. Yes, I can talk about what we did on the court but my favorite is off the court and we are still talking, still spending time together; still playing tennis; still going to the ranch, having fun, talking all night. The friendship and the bond is what I love the. Most. I love you two and we’ll be together forever.”
