Tony Parker's quite lucky

With the expected Kevin Love trade and issues slowly dissipating into the background, Tom Haberstroh of decided it would be cool to assess why Love has never gotten any 'love' from Minnesota in terms of roster help. Love has never gotten the chance to play with another All-Star caliber teammate and hasn’t even gotten to play with a top-40 player during his six-year career. Over the span of his playing days, Haberstroh says K-Love should have played with at least seven All-Stars and the only time that has happened was a weekend in February the past few seasons.

However, on the other end of the spectrum sits none other than San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker. If you enjoy math or graphs, then this stat is for you. Parker has had 23 All-Star teammates over his illustrious career. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Parker himself are the main culprits with Duncan gaining All-Star status 14 times, with Ginobili earning the distinction twice, and Parker helping his own case six times. I suppose you can count that as having an All-Star teammate.
