Tony Parker’s eye injury behind him… but are the goggles?

What’s really important for the Spurs and their fans is that Tony Parker is fine. The eye injured by a flying bottle when Parker just happened to be in the same New York nightclub where the Drake/Chris Brown fight took place. That story must never get old.

Parker played in the Olympics, so he was expected to be ready to go for the Spurs when they open camp next week, and he will be, coach Gregg Popovich told the San Antonio Express-News.

“He’s been looked at during and after the Olympics by a lot of people, and we’ll do the same,” Popovich said Friday. “All indications are that he’s totally ready to go and has no problem.”

But what we really want to know — is he keeping the goggles?

The Spurs open training camp Tuesday, and it has not yet been decided whether Parker will be forced to wear the protective goggles he donned while playing for Team France in August.

Those would be the goggles that Parker launched into the crowd in disgust after France was eliminated from Olympics by Spain. So we know what he thinks.

But I want to see him in them. I liked the look.

    Yo Tony, hows the law suits against both Crissy and Drake going ? Hope you hired some smart Jewish Lawyers to rip their wallets apart. I think $ 50 million should cover your new set of goggles.
