If anything his time in the league and the Spurs culture dictates perception and the perception is often that he's a player in the system. I think he was the best guard in the league last year and the 3rd best player overall. I think he's playing even better this year, tho he's not the 3rd best player so far. Curry has been all-star caliber but Parker has been MVP-caliber.
