Spurs' Tony Parker Appreciates the Moment (VIDEO)

''When I was 21 and I won my first one, it was kind of fast and we think it's going to happen every year. We think it's easy. But after a lot of years in the league, you realize it's really hard to go to the finals,'' Parker said. ''Now we take nothing for granted. We appreciate every moment, and we'll see what happens." 

--Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs, talking about the Spurs return to NBA Finals in 2013.

Parker may have solidified his place in NBA history with his clutch leadership, particularly in the fourth quarter, and his buzzer-beating circus shot to clinch Game One of the 2013 NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.  His mastery as the point guard of the San Antonio Spurs, led to a crucial road win in which the Spurs only had 4 turnovers the entire game.  If Parker continues as he has in the playoffs so far, he will win his second NBA Finals MVP trophy as well as his fourth NBA championship as a member of the Spurs.

Parker has matured and takes nothing for granted.  

However, there is a long way to go and the Miami Heat have a history of coming back after a loss both in the regular season and the Finals. Enjoy the series!
