Tony Parker Confirms He’s Played Last Game for France


Tony Parker confirmed after France’s lopsided defeat to Spain in Wednesday’s Olympic quarterfinals that he has indeed played his final game for his national team.

Parker said after France’s 92-67 loss to its longtime Spanish rivals that he has promised San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and team president R.C. Buford he will halt his international career at age 34 — because of the “toll” it has taken on him physically — and focus on finishing his NBA career strongly. “And I’m not gonna change my mind about that,” Parker said after scoring 14 points in his finale.
