Anthony Michael Parker (born June 19, 1975) is an American professional basketball player who last played with the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). After graduating from Bradley University with a major in liberal arts, he entered the 1997 NBA Draft and played briefly in the NBA before plying his trade in Europe. There, Parker spent five seasons with the Israeli Super League basketball club Maccabi Tel Aviv and one season with the Italian Lega A club Lottomatica Roma. With Maccabi he won five Israeli Super League national championships, five Israeli National Cups, three Euroleague titles (including the Suproleague in 2001), and was voted two consecutive times Euroleague MVP. After returning to the NBA as a free agent in 2006, Parker established himself as the Toronto Raptors' starting shooting guard, as well as one of the best three point shooters and perimeter defenders in the league. In his first season with the Raptors, Parker helped the team clinch their first ever division title, first NBA Playoffs berth in five years, and best regular season record in franchise history. He helped the Raptors reach the playoffs again in the 2007 08 season, before becoming a free agent in 2009.
