In the midst of the NBA Playoffs, Tony Parker revealed something truly awesome about himself.
No, we're not talking about his toughness, playing on a hamstring that could "tear anytime."
Tony Parker is apparently a huge nerd about The Avengers.
With Comic-Con just wrapping up in San Diego, pictures are now surfacing from Parker's Facebook account of a couple collectibles that every geek would give up their Magic The Gathering card collection to add to their collection.
Before the series against the Warriors started, Parker posted photos of himself and former Spur Fabricio Oberto on his Facebook page standing in front of Iron Man and The Hulk captioned, "Look who was at my house yesterday!!!! One of my fav teammate of all time!!!! Fabiooooooooo"
No word on when or how the Spurs point guard acquired the "life-sized" action figures, why he chose to pose in front of them for this occasion or, finally, why it took this long for the world to notice.
Unfortunately for Parker, The Avengers 2 isn't scheduled to be released until 2015. What will he do with all that free time?

Project Spurs' good friends Eric Messersmith and Ari Temkin over at 1250 ESPN "The Hardline" had some fun with an exclusive "interview" with San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich.
OK so it really wasn't Popovich per se but Ari chopped up some sound bites from the Spurs head coach during the regular season and mashed them up into a funny fake...
One thing we know for sure about Deshaun Thomas is he can flat out shoot the basketball. This draft workout video only solidifies any doubts people might have had about his shooting stroke.
Most NBA players can knock down shot after shot when alone in a gym, but the thing that stands out are his mechanics. In this workout you can tell he doesn’t get much lift on any...

The San Antonio Spurs' first crack at the defending champion Miami Heat will be on Oct. 19.
Yes, it's just preseason. And sure, Norris Cole, Jarvis Varnado and Rashard Lewis will likely log more time than LeBron James, especially since they square off early in the preseason. But it will still dramatically...
