Overview

"I owe everything to basketball. It was my favorite pastime and my greatest passion. It became my profession, and I became part of its history—maybe even the history of sports in general…. I never could have imagined such a destiny." — Tony Parker   For the first time in the English language, the beloved Spurs point guard opens up about his life and career in the NBA, on the international stage, and beyond. By the time he was three years old, Tony Parker was already dribbling a basketball in his hometown of Gravelines in France. In his bedroom, surrounded by posters of his idol Michael Jordan, he imagined himself making it to the NBA and leading his team to a championship.  Everyone told him to forget it. He was too short, too skinny, too slow. Besides, no NBA team would ever turn its fortunes over to a point guard from Europe. After a 20-year professional career, four NBA championships, and an NBA Finals MVP award, it's safe to say Tony Parker has succeeded beyond all of his dreams.    This candid, conversational autobiography takes fans on a whirlwind tour which includes Parker's early life in France, his years in Texas alongside Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan, and his time on the red carpet as part of one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples.   This is an essential read for all basketball fans and anyone who believes in following their dreams.
