Tony Parker: The Final Shot follows on the Nike heels of the popular Michael Jordan miniseries The Last Dance. While this French-made documentary may not hold as much interest for non-fans of the sport, Parker was one of the NBA's top players for years and a pioneer for European athletes in the United States. The film maintains a brisk pace and offers some insights into both the career trajectory of a pro player and some of the personal details that fueled Parker's success. He's portrayed as a uniquely skilled player and a family man with a long-term vision of the impact he can have around the world even now in his post-professional career.

Comments from Michael Jordan, Pau Gasol, and Kobe Bryant (to whose memory the film is dedicated) offer their takes on the friendly and mutually-respectful rivalries they had with Parker. But some of the more revelatory pieces of the film are comments from Parker's friends, including French teammates from as far back as his teen years, and family about his upbringing in France and the significance for him of playing for the French national team. His parents -- a Dutch mother and an American father who played professionally in Europe and raised Parker and his two brothers in France -- offer a lot of insight into where Parker's discipline and emotional resilience come from.
