Tony Parker Out of The Olympics?

Tony Parker

Tony Parker may want to consider upping his lawsuit against the W.i.P. club in Soho. After being caught in the middle of a bottle-throwing club fight between Drake's entourage and Chris Brown, the San Antonio Spur got a shard of glass in his left cornea. Once he landed in France to begin training for his home country's Summer Olympics team, he had to undergo surgery for treatment. A little over a week after the brawl, which injured a couple people, Parker smacked the club with a $20 million lawsuit for negligence. But the saga continues as the athlete just received even more bad news.

According to his blog, Parker claims the damage is more serious than he thought and could seriously affect his career. He wrote that doctors,  “conducted additional tests on Friday afternoon and found a piece of glass that had penetrated 99 percent [of my] left eye. I can say today, I almost lost my eye.” “At best,” he will return to France on July 7, which would cause him to miss some exhibition matches. France’s first game action in the 2012 Olympics comes on July 29 against the United States.
