While speaking at a Summer Olympics press conference in Paris, San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker revealed he'll miss a week of practice due to an eye injury he sustained in the Chris Brown/Drake brawl in New York City. Said Tony: "I was with my friend Chris Brown and me and my friends took some punches. They started throwing bottles everywhere. I don't know what happened." During the fight, Tony sustained an injury to the cornea of his eye. He says he can't do anything for seven days. So, he will be missing the start of the French team. Says Tony: "But I was lucky. The injury won't prevent me from competing in the Olympics in any way." I say he needs to thank God that he's lucky he still has an eye.
