Spurs icon Tony Parker at peace with retirement: ‘I’m not going to miss basketball’ | The Undefeated – San Antonio Video



Legendary Spurs guard Tony Parker tells Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated that he is retiring from basketball after 18 seasons. Parker says playing his final season with the Charlotte Hornets was a great experience, but is at peace with retiring now. The four-time NBA champion also confirms that he spoke with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and Hornets owner Michael Jordan prior to his retirement announcement. Parker hopes his jersey retirement in San Antonio will be a special night to celebrate the Spurs Big 3 with Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan one last time.

  13. I’ve been a basketball fan all my life never really got why people buy jerseys but do have one of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginóbili & Tony Parker; with him retiring a generation of ball is ending. We’ll probably never see a another team like those spurs.

  16. Spurs could still take you back Tony!! Hornets have a trade exception. I do not know what it would take. And your role would not be as big. But you could still do the farewell tour.
