Congratulations to San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker as he has been named the 2013 FIBA Europe Men's Player of the Year.
It was an easy choice for Parker as he led Team France to gold at last summer's EuroBasket and led the Spurs to the 2013 NBA Finals.
"For many years, Tony Parker has been a great ambassador for the sport of basketball, both in Europe and abroad," said FIBA Europe Acting President Cyriel Coomans
. "It is therefore fitting to see a player of his fine calibre rewarded in this manner for what was indeed a magical 2013."
"Every year I look forward with anticipation to seeing Tony Parker take to the court wearing a French jersey," claimed FIBA Europe Secretary General Kamil Novak. "He is one of the greatest European players of his generation, as this award confirms, and I consider it an honour to get to see him play."
