San Antonio Spurs All-Star point guard Tony Parker sustained an injury to his eye when a bar fight in New York City broke out and he and his girlfriend were near the fracas reportedly started between music stars Chris Brown and Drake. Parker is in France to begin preparation for the 2012 Olympic games and spoke to the French media (via infobae.com) about the incident. "I was quietly with my friends when a fight broke out. Bottles started flying everywhere. I tried to protect my girlfriend and I got everything," Parker said, wearing sunglasses to hide the wound. "The cornea is affected. I can not do anything for seven days. Wear a therapeutic contact lens and I get drops. I was lucky, that I almost had to give me stitches," he added. Fortunately, TP will be OK and should fully recover in time to play with France in London. This hasn't been a good start to Parker's summer vacation. First, the Spurs were eliminated from the playoffs by the Thunder after riding a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals and now this. The good thing is TP wasn't directly involved, however, this injury to his eye won't sit well with the Spurs front office and coaching staff considering he did mention the eye-injury felt bad once he landed in France and sought immediate medical help. Parker and the French national team will begin training camp on July 20. What do you have to say Spurs fans about this?
