Tony Parker is ‘Nightcrawler’

He is lightning fast. Capable of getting from one point to another in a blink of an eye leaving opponents baffled as to how he gets to where he wants to be with minimal effort.

That description sounds like the character "Nightcrawler" from Marvel's comic book series "X-Men" who has the mutant-ability to teleport. However, it can also describe San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker.

Throughout his NBA career, TP has relied on his lightning fast foot speed to get in the lane and score easy buckets leaving would-be defenders looking silly and flat-footed. Much like "Nightcrawler."
