Tony Parker Becomes All-Time EuroBasket Leading Scorer

By David Kenyon

Tony Parker’s basketball career is already filled with accolades, but the San Antonio Spurs added a EuroLeague record to his trophy case on Monday.

Parker buried a jumper from the elbow to eclipse the mark, which seems fitting considering that’s the point guard’s go-to shot at this point.

According to Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk, Parker had tied Nikos Galis—who starred for Greece in the 1980s—with an 11-point performance in France’s victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina on Sunday.

Parker also received a congratulatory message from FIBA’s official Twitter account:

Parker and Spurs teammate Boris Diaw have joined a couple other NBA players—namely Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz) and Nicolas Batum (Charlotte Hornets) in hopes of defending France’s Eurobasket title.
