Parker is top-ranked Spur in ESPN rankings

Every Spur is now accounted for in NBA’s individual player rankings with Tony Parker’s appearance at No. 16.

His 12-spot jump from No. 28 in last year’s rankings is a fitting reward for probably the best season of his professional career, in which he finished fifth in the MVP voting after the Spurs finished first in the Western Conference.

A quick review of as a team:

No. 16, Tony Parker

No. 25, Manu Ginobili

No. 27, Tim Duncan

No. 95, Kawhi Leonard

No. 149, Tiago Splitter

No. 151, Stephen Jackson

No. 155, DeJuan Blair

No. 160, Danny Green

No. 162, Boris Diaw

No. 171, Gary Neal

No. 198, Matt Bonner

No. 309, Patty Mills

No. 458, Cory Joseph

No. 488, Derrick Byars

NR, Nando De Colo

Seems like a pretty fair representation of where the Spurs are at. A good top-end trio surrounded by eight other players in the top 200. Not as flashy as the Lakers, who have four in the Top 20 — take a guess who — but still a very, very respectable roster.
