Video: Tony Parker coaches Spurs in the huddle
Spurs veteran guard Tony Parker literally did it all in Thursday's Game 1 victory over the Heat in the NBA Finals.
Parker led all scorers with 21 points including two off a clutch basket with five seconds left to ice the game. He also handed out a team-high six assists in the contest.
Additionally, the native of France temporarily took over the coaching duties from Greg Popovich during a timeout in the fourth quarter. This spectacle can be seen in the clip above.
No worries, though. Parker checked with coach before astutely addressing the team. As you can see, his teammates were clearly interested to hear what he had to say. After all, the 31-year-old does have three championship rings to his name.
Could full-time coaching be in Parker's future down the road?
