ESPN caught an awesome scene last night of Tony Parker coaching the Spurs during Game 1 of the NBA Finals. After speaking with Gregg Popovich first – surely just double-checking his message, but also implicitly showing he’s not staging a coup to San Antonio’s gameplan – Parker addresses his teammates on the bench.

My absolute favorite part of the video is how quickly Parker’s teammates lean in to listen intently as soon as he sits down.
