Friday was a whirlwind day for Tony Parker. He found out he was getting his No. 9 jersey retired by the Spurs during the 2019-20 season on Nov. 11. This car accident was a downer for Parker, but the good news is the future Hall of Famer is all right.
Tony Parker played in 1,198 games with the Spurs. He finished his San Antonio career with averages of 15.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists. Parker was a six-time All-Star with the Spurs and named the 2007 Finals MVP when San Antonio defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.
Parker played with the Charlotte Hornets last season. He put up 9.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 56 regular season games. The 37-year-old retired from the NBA this summer. He will go down as one of the best international players of all-time.
That Spurs core of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Gregg Popovich won four championships together. They will forever be linked and all be in the NBA Hall of Fame.
