HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — No theme music is needed for Tony Parker‘s long overdue move up the KIA Rae to the MVP Ladder this week.
Parker has been the catalyst this season for a Spurs team that ranks as one of the league’s best, despite Manu Ginobili‘s injury issues and Tim Duncan‘s fade into a supporting role.
Parker’s rise (to the sixth spot from No. 10) is the biggest jump of any player on the list this week, but not the most dramatic move. Reigning MVP Derrick Rose fell out of the rankings completely and Kevin Durant slipped past LeBron James for the top spot this week (Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade also made moves up).
