I am feeling slightly guilty for mocking Tony Parker’s eye injury. What a first seemed to be not that bad, is actually a lot worse than expected. Parker who ended up in the bar brawl between Chris Brown and Drake got glass in his cornea. He had an operation to remove the glass and now has to be on bed rest. He is apparently taking 5 different drops every two hours and is also experiencing hallucinations. He is confined to a hotel room due to risk of infection. So now he is waiting to hear from the doctors about his condition. The French team is nervous about losing him, they play their first game on July 29th. Even more so the San Antonio Spurs definitely don’t want this condition to interfere with his training with them.
We can’t forget the blow-out that happened a little over a week ago at the New York City night club W.i.P. You remember the one where apparently Chris Brown and Drake got in a fight over Rihanna. Originally it the story was that Brown had sent a bottle to Drake with notion of, ‘Hey I screwed Rihanna and so did you.’ Then a fight broke out. People have contradicted that story since then and said it just happened over some saucy language. Regardless the club was popping that including other VIPs like Mary J. Blige, Fabolous, Spurs’ Tony Parker, and Knicks’ Iman Shumpert.
The fight broke out at 4:00am and even though Shumpert escaped Parker was left behind. Parker suffered damage to his corona. Now Parker is suing the club for $20 million. Parker is recovering fine by the way so does he really deserve $20 million for the inconvenience? Not only that but how did previously injured Shumpert make it out unharmed while Parker ended up in the middle of the fight. If I were Parker I’d hire a new security detail.
Spurs’ Tony Parker made it all the way through two round of the NBA Playoffs without injury only to hurt his left eye in a bar fight in New York City. The best part about this story is that Parker was in the middle of the fight between Chris Brown and Drake’s entourage over Rihanna. Brown has some serious issues when it comes to the Rihanna thing, he should definitely get some therapy about that.
New York Knicks’ Iman Shumpert was also at the club but managed to get out unharmed. Parker actually got off easy because a random girl at the club had her head split open by a flying bottle. Since Parker’s cornea was injured he can’t do anything for 7 days but no worries he will still be good for the Olympics. That’s good because France needs him.
No pictures of Parker with an eye-patch yet but I will definitely be looking.
