Before the Spurs shocking first round loss to the Grizzlies they had the 2nd best record in the NBA, and they had cruised through the regular season. Now one of the reasons they did so well in the regular season was because of 3 time All Star, 2007 NBA Finals MVP, and 3 time Nba Champion Tony Parker.
