Tony Parker has made no secret of his hatred for the goggles he was forced to play with at the Olympics. The Spurs point guard injured his left eye when he was caught in the middle of glass bottle crossfire during a nightclub brawl between the entourages of Chris Brown and Drake in June.
Parker had to undergo surgery to remove a shard of glass but was cleared by Spurs doctors to compete at the Olympics for France on the condition he wears protective goggles.
But, if anything, the eye wear has been a nuisance to Parker, who has said he hasn't enjoyed playing with glasses, and was even jokingly the target of strategy by Manu Ginobili.
Now that France was eliminated from the men's tournament Wednesday after an early exit in the quarterfinals at the hands of Spain, Parker wanted his goggles to know just what he thought of them. Here's a tweet from NBA.com's Sekou Smith following the game:
So much for those goggles. Parker just smashed them on the floor.— Sekou Smith (@SekouSmithNBA) August 8, 2012
Upset at the glasses or upset at being eliminated? Probably a mix of both.
Pour out a little eye drop solution today for Tony Parker's goggles, guys.
