The San Antonio Spurs are off to a flying start as we reach the midway point of the 2010-2011 NBA season. One of the players largely responsible for San Antonio's great success thus far has been point guard Tony Parker, who has improved his all-around game this year and is enjoying one of the better seasons of his highly successful NBA career.
The Frenchman has taken on more of the offensive load this year, as the Spurs' offense has shifted from being heavily reliant on world class power forward Tim Duncan. San Antonio has opened things up on the perimeter, meaning more chances for Parker and shooting guard Manu Ginobili to make plays, and it's paid big dividends.
San Antonio's sterling 37-7 record can't be outright contributed to one player, but it's always fun to make the case for a great team's most valuable player. Is it Tony Parker's turn to stand out as The Man in San Antonio? I'll weigh both sides of the debate and try to come up with an MVP for the NBA's best team.
