While NBA fans enjoy seeing the leagues elite/popular stars going against each other in the glorified scrimmage where defense is optional for three and a half quarters, the San Antonio Spurs were watching the game thinking, please don’t let Tony Parker tweak his back or have another injury.
Parker returns to the Spurs, as the finish their Rodeo Road Trip, with out any set back.
During his TP Show (via RMC), Parker discussed how his weekend went and the experience he shared with his fellow Frenchman and good friend Thierry Henry of Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls.
“I loved it. I had a great weekend. I spent quality time with my family, my friends. The game was awesome. You never know when it will be your last All Star game. There were excellent performances."
Good news for Spurs’ fans is Coach Scott Brooks had decided early that Parker would see limited action due to his recent back injury be able to rest for the second half of the season.
Parker had a quiet four point, two rebounds and one assist performance but he was glad to be able to share the experience with his family and friends. He believes that as time progresses, you never when will be your last time play in an All-Star game and that every trip there should be enjoyed and savored.
