TP to Play for France, Give Popovich Sleepless Nights

Plus he calls Manu Ginobili a geezer. Now, that’s just cruel, Tony: “Spurs guard Tony Parker says he won’t let Manu Ginobili’s ill-fated run in last year’s Olympics deter him from playing with the French national team this summer…After the Spurs’ Game 5 ouster against Dallas, Parker said he plans to go through with his decision to join the French team. ‘For me, it will be a little bit different,’ said Parker, who turns 27 in May. “Manu is over 30. I’m younger.’”

    I like Pop’s sarcasm in that article.

    How is he giving up!? If anything he’s not giving up by playing for his country.

    “One could probably just look at my face, or at the comments I’ve made in the past — that I’m not making now — and you can glean from that how happy I am about some of the guys playing in the summertime.”

    carter’s just jealous over Eva and TP – folks who hate on the french are usually jealous (or have never had good wine, cheese and bread and therefore dont know no better)

    The French will go out in the first round so he’ll only have about three games to play,GB will do better than France

    Didn’t he hurt his thumb or something last time he played for them? He’s a funny one, that Tony. Pop, too. For what it’s worth, I think we have the funniest coach in the L.
