According to the “USA Today” reported, with branch Huai – Leonard grew up one of the best players in the NBA, and LaMarcus Aldridge joined, Tony Parker said hope to prolong his playing career.
Parke is 33 years old, and is a few years younger than the other two in GDP, Duncan Manu and Ginobili Tim.
“(Leonard) and LaMarcus (Aldridge) have really helped us, they are playing very well,” said Parke. “It’s going to be a long time, and that’s for sure. If and LaMarcus are not in the team, then maybe I’ll play one or two more seasons (retired) after Timmy (Duncan) and Ma Nu (Ginobili).”
“But now they are in the team and it makes me want to stay with them for a while. Like Timmy and Manu do, I also want to help all the young people, you know? It’s a great family, having a great team and it makes you want to stay.”
Parke and Spurs will expire in the summer of 2018.
“I don’t know,” Parke said when Duncan and Ginobili retired. “I have to be honest with you, I really don’t know. I don’t have a clue. You don’t know, because it’s been going on for three or four years.”
