Tony Parker named to second-team All-NBA

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker was named to the All-NBA second-team, the NBA announced.

Parker received 14 votes for All-NBA first-team, 39 votes for the second-team and 23 votes for third-team, totaling 210 points. He finished 95 points ahead of third-team guards Damian Lillard and Goran Dragic.

Parker, 32, averaged 16.7 points, 5.7 assists and 49.9 percent shooting in a career low 29.4 minutes per game, while his Player Efficiency Rating, assist percentage and win shares all declined this season.

Parker’s inclusion on the All-NBA team, his fourth selection of his career, is more of a nod to the Spurs’ NBA best 62-20 record than his individual success. Parker has made three consecutive All-NBA teams and he’s one of 21 guards in NBA history with 16,000 points and 5,000 assists in his career.

Parker led the Spurs in points per game, assists per game, field goal attempts per game and usage rate, which measures the amount of possessions he utilized while he was on the floor.
