In a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker recently sustained an injury to his eye when a fight broke out this past Wednesday night at W.I.P. in New York City, the same club music stars Chris Brown and Drake had their alleged bottle-tossing mega-brawl.
Parker is currently in France to begin preparation for the 2012 Olympic games but spoke with the media today about the incident.
“I was quietly with my friends when a fight broke out. Bottles started flying everywhere. I tried to protect my girlfriend and I got everything,” said Parker, wearing sunglasses to hide the wound.
“The cornea is affected. I cannot do anything for seven days. Wear a therapeutic contact lens and I get drops. I was lucky, that I almost had to get stitches, The injury won’t prevent me from competing in the Olympics in any way.”" he added.
Parker and the French national team are scheduled begin training camp on July 20th.
