#Spurs Tony Parker almost lost his left eye in the Drake-Chris Brown NYC nightclub brawl, and may miss (most likely) will miss the #LondonOlympics! #Parker cornea was stratched in the fight, and doctors ended up having to remove a shard (operation) that “penetrated 99 percent” of his left eye.

“I’m seeing a specialist in New York with the hope of being given the all  clear to play in the Olympic Games,” Parker said. “Spurs are very worried.

“Anything can happen, including me being out of the Olympics. The decision doesn’t belong to me anymore. It’s in the hands of the doctor and San  Antonio.”

Parker said he has been having hallucinations and been unable to leave his  hotel room for eight days because of the risk of infection. He also has to apply five different products into his eye every two hours.

“Fear sets in,” Parker said of being told he would have to undergo surgery. “An eye is so fragile. … I couldn’t believe it. But that’s life. I was in the  wrong place at the wrong time.

“I didn’t have luck, but I came out well from my misfortune. It could have been worse. The rest of my career is not in question. I just have to wait for the injury to heal itself.” – nypost
