The San Antonio Spurs stole home court advantage in winning Game 1 of the 2013 NBA Finals on the road against the Miami Heat, 92-88, and guard Tony Parker had a lot to do with it.
Parker wound up finishing the game with 21 points and six assists — not exactly world-beating numbers — but it was his stellar play at the end of the fourth quarter that has the sports world buzzing.
As well as his coaching.
Not only did he bag an unreal jumper late in the game, but he also took over for Gregg Popovich and coached the team in the huddle. Talk about leadership skills.
And English isn’t even this star’s first language.
