Tony Parker Retires From NBA

Tony Parker Hornets

Hornets general manager Mitch Kupchak congratulated Parker on a "remarkable career".

After 18 National Basketball Association seasons, four-time champion and six-time All-Star Tony Parker is hanging up his sneakers.

Parker said that while he enjoyed his season with the Hornets, he felt that without a championship run in the near future it became hard to want to keep going.

Parker - who was previously married to Eva Longoria - said a "lot of different stuff ultimately led me to this decision". Parker helped capture four championships with the Spurs while becoming the first European player to win NBA Finals MVP in 2007.

Parker added that he looks forward to spending more time with his family, but simply struggled to motivate himself to play at a high level while playing for a non-contender in the Charlotte Hornets.

Parker played in 1,254 regular season games over the course of his career and finished with career averages of 15.5 points, 5.6 assists and 2.7 rebounds per performance. "I had a great time in Charlotte". I have a lot of great stuff in my life.

"And so it was very weird to arrive to a team and you're like, 'There is no way we're going to win a championship.' ..."

Parker developed from a teenager with raw talent into a poised leader as he got older, directing the Spurs offense through his high basketball IQ.
