San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker led Team France to their first EuroBasket gold medal this summer defeating Lithuania 80-66 in the Finals. Parker averaged 19 points and 3.3 assists for the tournament but his impact was also felt off the court and in the locker room.

Check out this video of Parker flexing his leadership skills in the locker room as he is getting on his teammates and seemingly trying to keep them focused on winning during halftime of the team’s game versus their main rival – Spain.

You don’t have to speak French to understand Parker was determined to defeat the Spanish squad (which they did 75-72) and move on to the Finals. Let’s hope he brings a lot of this vocal leadership to the Spurs this upcoming season.
