Video Flashback: When Tony Parker coached Marco Belinelli, Marc Gasol, Andrea Bargnani & Danilo Gallinari

Back in 2003, San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker was a coach for the NBA’s Basketball Without Borders program but little did he know, he was coaching a future Spurs teammate and NBA opponents.

In this video which recently surfaced, a young Parker (coming off the 2003 Spurs’ title) was a guest coach and the footage captures a young Marco Belinelli, a very portly Marc Gasol, Danilo Gallinari, and Andrea Bargnani soaking in Parker’s words of wisdom of what it takes to play at the NBA level.

Seriously, Gasol was quite pudgy in his younger days! Amazing to see how he looked then as compared to now with the Grizzlies.
