Tony Parker is “Rediscovering His Aggressiveness”

December 6, 2010

Its good to see Tony getting back to being the dominating point guard he once was. I guess its either the divorce fueling his fire or now since the divorce is behind him, he can just focus on basketball. Keep it up TP!

From Spurs Nation:

Acknowledging an on-court struggle that had resulted in sub-par play in four of the Spurs’ previous five games, point guard Tony Parker said the solution to his problems was simple: Rediscover the aggressiveness that made him one of the league’s best point guards through the Spurs’ first 14 games.

“I’ve had a stretch of games not being myself,” he said. “Obviously, for some reasons, I was not playing good basketball. The last two games, this one and the last one (Friday against Minnesota), I just wanted to be aggressive and make stuff happen for myself and for my teammates and get back to how I was playing at the beginning of the season.”

Parker has endured the public scrutiny associated with the breakup of his marriage to actress Eva Longoria. Both have filed divorce petitions, with the accompanying tabloid publicity.

The effect on Parker’s game was most pronounced in Los Angeles, where he scored only two points in a loss to the Clippers after reportedly meeting with Longoria at the team hotel before the game.

After scoring 19 points and handing out six assists in just 26 minutes and 46 seconds of the Spurs’ 109-84 victory over the New Orleans Hornets at the AT&T Center on Sunday, Parker said he believes he has returned to the productive level of play that characterized the first weeks of the season.

Asked if he felt he had regained that early-season level, he nodded his head emphatically.

“Oh, definitely,” he said. “We had two good wins. Now we have to keep it going.”
