    his peak is better both on offense
    Debatable.
    Tony before the injury was the second best player after LeBron in the 2013 playoffs.

    I believe, at their peak, the 3 pts shooting gives an extra mile to Manu... imho

    I'm not sure I'd be able to choose. Parker would give you more minutes and completely run the offense... but in the last 2 minutes, I want the ball in Manu's hands

    As for the poll, this is too damn vague, who ya got ? career ? peak ? international ? nba only ?

    Taking all into account ? you have to pick Manu.. dat olympics gold medal is an insane achievement, his peak is better both on offense and defense...

    Overall Tony and Manu were just perfect for Pop, Tim and the Spurs. Manu brought the out of the box mentality that Pop was lacking, Tony brought the consistency Tim needed, dat simple Tony / Tim PnR has been the bread and butter of Spurs offense for years.. Both had unique skills sets and signature moves.
    Both are severely underrated, seeing a top 75 with 2 of the winningest trio of all time out left out is a disgrace.
    But I voted Tony.. for obvious reason
    that's the spirit. yeah it's a potentially complex question, etc etc

    but at the end of the day (judgment day)

    one question, two choices, one answer:

    who ya got?

    Manu had greater peaks and amazing moments...but Parker was consistently the engine that made this team go.

    He was a top 5 PG in the NBA for like 10 years and still people don't give him his due because Duncan was a GOAT and Manu was flashy.

    Duncan was #1 obviously...but Parker and Manu are 2A and 2B for different reasons, and I would argue that Parker carried more of the load as a starter and a scorer

    The thing is, I think the idea of Manu being "wild" while Tony was "steady" is kinda overstated. For their careers, Parker averaged 2.7 TOs per 36 minutes and Manu averaged 2.8 TOs per 36 minutes, so it's not like there was a crazy discrepancy there. I love both players, but Manu's measurable effectiveness while on the floor was miles beyond Tony's. Honestly, I think Pop held Tony back by actively discouraging his three point game (he once joked that Tony would be fined for every 3 PT FGA), whereas Manu didn't have that hindrance. On D, there's really no comparison.

    Its Manu by a mile. Manu's dunk on Chris Bosh in the 2014 finals will live forever in my mind. You just can't compete with an iconic moment like that. Its one for the ages. While Parker was a very very good player, an all star, It's still Manu for me. Parker was the starter, Manu was the finisher who thrust a dagger in the opponents heart.

    Parker was more valuable to the Spurs.

    Parker handled the ball more as the pg and had more assits so passed the ball more so more chances for turnovers.

    I was at that game in the stands behing that basket. It's hard to describe the rush I got when Manu made that move through what seemed like the whole Miami team. I knew right then that the game was OVER. Manu wasn't going to let the Spurs lose.

    It's a character trait in great atheletes known as "heart." It's also why Pop put the ball in Manu's hands at the end of close games as our "closer". His skill set became sharper when the game was on the line. HEART!

    True, but Manu split time between being de facto PG (when Parker wasn't sharing the floor) and SG, so fewer chances for assists. I think he was still the better passer overall. My only point is that the TO difference between them isn't as large as some people might think. Someone like Magic Johnson averaged 3.8 TOs per 36 in his career, which is more than either of them, but no one would argue that he wasn't a great passer.
