Tony Parker: ‘I Just Hope I Stay in San Antonio’

WIth his name swirling in trade talk, Tony Parker tells Yahoo! Sports that his wish is to remain as the Spurs’ point guard: “The Toronto Raptors and Sacramento Kings, who hold the fifth and seventh picks, respectively, have talked to the Spurs about Parker. One league source said the chances of the Spurs reaching a deal with the Kings isn’t likely. Spurs guard George Hill also has drawn some trade interest from teams with picks in the middle of the lottery. ‘I just hope I stay in San Antonio,’ said Parker, who is in town for Steve Nash’s charity soccer game. ‘I love it in San Antonio. I’ve had some great years in San Antonio. I just re-signed four years and I hope I can stay there.’ When asked specifically about possibly being dealt to Toronto or Sacramento, Parker said only: ‘We will see. I love it in San Antonio.’”

    “I just hope I stay in San Antonio…” is the part that the reporters could hear. The part that they didn’t hear because Tony didn’t say it out loud was “…because the other teams I want to play for don’t have the players or picks to trade for me, and the ones that do are places that give me nightmares.”

    Moving would help his chances of landing more chicks to charm with his French. Only bad thing is he can’t hide down in San Antonio anymore with his carousing of strippers, hookers, starlet, groupies, or basketball wives. Lol

    I think dude’s been trying to leave SA for awhile but he knew he had to sign that extension because he wouldn’t get that money otherwise.
