NBA star Tony Parker almost loses eye in fight, could miss Olympics

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

PARIS >> NBA star Tony Parker may miss the London Olympics after almost losing his eye in a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage.

Parker’s cornea was scratched in the fight, and the San Antonio Spurs guard has revealed he had to have an operation to remove a shard that had "penetrated 99 percent" of his left eye.

Parker says "I almost lost my eye." He did not join the rest of France’s team Wednesday and will see a specialist in New York when he is cleared to take long-haul flights after July 5.

He says "anything can happen, including me being out of the Olympics," adding that "the decision doesn’t belong to me anymore. It’s in the hands of the doctor and San Antonio."
