Bottles flying during the over-the-top club brawl between Chris Brown and Drake injured more than just the two hot-headed rappers. Victims from the fight have been surfacing all week and on Saturday, NBA player Tony Parker announced that he was also hurtin’ from the fiasco.
The San Antonio Spurs player, who was wed to Desperate Housewives’ star Eva Longoria from 2007 to 2010, suffered from a scratched retina after emerging from the Manhattan nightclub on Wednesday and because of the injury, the star will have to take it easy on the basketball.
“I was with my friend Chris Brown and me and my friends took some punches,” Tony, who will also be competing in the Olympics this summer as part of the French basketball team, said at a press conference over the weekend.
“At first it was okay, but then it started getting worse and when the plane landed it was really hurting so I went straight to the ER,” he explained, while sporting shades that covered his eye wound. “The cornea has been touched. I’ll be missing the start of the French team, because I can’t do anything for a week except keep the lens in and take drops.”
“But I was lucky,” the b-baller continued. “The injury won’t prevent me from competing in the Olympics in any way.”
