To be fair, that's actually been a pretty sound strategy since Parker's been with the Spurs since he's been so hot/cold over the years in the playoffs (aka Speedy Claxton and Jacque Vaughn bailing him out in the '03 and '05 Finals ).

This year TP is on a mission--but I hope our opponents keep playing him the same way.
The only game that Speedy bailed TP out was the title clinching game in 2003, and 2005? Jacque Vaughn wasn't even on that team. When he was in 2007, Parker was MVP of the Finals. Not sure what you're talking about.
