Last night in San Antonio, the evening was Tony Parker. The playmaker became the first frenchman to see his jersey retired by an NBA franchise.
Player of the San Antonio Spurs from 2001 to 2018, Tony Parker has won 4 NBA titles with the franchise to texas. Member of the illustrious Big 3 with Duncan and Ginobili, the Frenchie has just written the most beautiful pages of the history of the franchise. Yesterday evening, he was honored by the San Antonio Spurs. The defeat 113 to 109 of his own in the face of the Grizzlies is almost anecdotal. Popovich, Duncan, Robinson, Diaw and of course Ginobili, all took the floor to pay tribute to the true legend of the game.
“Before you leave, I want to do a thing with the Spurs fans, all together. This is my last favor before I go. Just imagine that we are at the Alamo Dome. I am 19 years old. Imagine. We play the Lakers and it’s Kobe and Shaq. And I want a big ‘Go Spurs Go’ to three… for the last time, all together. One, two, three… ” – Tony Parker
