Tony Parker's Health

There’s no doubting that Tony Parker is the motor in the San Antonio Spurs’ well oiled engine. As the veteran point guard goes, the Spurs go. During the Western Conference Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Parker was slowed by a hamstring strain, as his average dipped to 13.2 points per game in the series down from the 16.7 he put up during the regular season. Parker also played an average of 27.8 minutes per game. Entering this NBA Finals against the Miami Heat, there are already reports that Parker is suffering from a sprained ankle. If the Spurs are going to avenge their loss to the Heat, chances are they’re going to need more minutes and overall production from Parker. His health is vital to their chances of being crowned kings once again. (Photo: Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)
