Even though the Spurs will always be Tim Duncan's team so long as he's still playing, Parker is now indisputably its star. The Frenchman has dramatically improved every year, and is now counted among the league's best players. His speed and quickness have made Parker a devastating scorer off the dribble, and he was justifiably named to the All-NBA Second Team as a result last season. At just $12.5 million per season for this year and next, the Spurs have their 31-year-old star locked up at a very reasonable price for at least two more seasons.
