14. Tony Parker
French international Tony Parker is one of the best Europeans to play in the NBA. A four-time NBA champion, Parker is also a six-time All-Star. Amazingly, Parker didn’t care about basketball when he was young. He wanted to play soccer but when he saw Michael Jordan’s performances he changed his mind.
This pleased his father who played basketball for Loyola Chicago. Parker spent 17 years with the San Antonio Spurs as their starting point guard. As well as his NBA success, Parker starred on the international scene. He was the MVP in the Eurobasket 2013 final when France went on to win gold.
