San Antonio Spurs All-Star point guard Tony Parker sustained an injury to his eye when a bar fight in New York City broke out and he and his girlfriend were near the fracas reportedly started between music stars Chris Brown and Drake.
Parker is in France to begin preparation for the 2012 Olympic games and spoke to the French media (via infobae.com) about the incident.
"I was quietly with my friends when a fight broke out. Bottles started flying everywhere. I tried to protect my girlfriend and I got everything," Parker said, wearing sunglasses to hide the wound.
