There may be some fans out there who believe San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker deserves the NBA's Most Valuable Player award at the end of the regular season, but all of the fan base can agree raising the Larry O'Brien trophy as the last team standing in June is the most important accomplishment. If it's up to Tony Parker, he has a different dream scenario lined up for his career and it doesn't involve the MVP trophy. Jeff Zillgitt recently wrote an article on what Parker commented to USA Today Sports. Tony Parker recently told USA TODAY Sports that he wants to win an NBA title in June then follow that up with a Eurobasket title for France, which finished second to Spain in 2011. While Parker's sights may also be on a Eurobasket title, the first thing he wants to win is an NBA championship again. Parker now has an attitude of being one of the best players in the world over just looking to dominate the NBA. That can be clear with his MVP worthy season and he's only getting better as he's shooting three more free throws than last month. That's a big accomplishment since Parker won Western Conference Player of the Month for January and only playing better as the months go by. Parker's national team of France seems to have a good group to make the second part of his wish come true as they'll be paired alongside Ukraine, Great Britain, Germany, Israel, and Belgium. Spain also faces the possibility of not playing with its big man in Pau Gasol, who is out with an injury right now for the Los Angeles Lakers. This could be Parker's biggest year of his entire career if he can pull this off. While he's won a Finals MVP in 2007, this team was still viewed as Tim Duncan's team and some viewed it as the best matchup for Parker, who dominated the series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is the first time Parker has really taken the reigns of the Spurs and it looks like he's going big with his accomplishments. If Parker can indeed win an NBA championship while carrying the team and a Eurobasket title, there'd be no question that Parker would now be the lone player viewed as the new cornerstone of the San Antonio Spurs. What do you Spurs fans think about Parker's goals for this year?
