Tony Parker Retires From NBA

Charlotte Hornets point guard Tony Parker of France takes part in a team exercise at a practice facility inside the Spectrum Centre in Charlotte North Carolina

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.

After 16-years in the NBA, Wade announced that the 2018-2019 NBA season would be his last. "And so I knew that the time changed, and I was being very nostalgic", Parker said. Parker didn't play in the Hornets' last 13 games, after a mid-March road loss to the Miami Heat that was a blow to the Hornets' playoff hopes. "So, for me, it's different". A lovely family. attractive kids.

"I wanted to play 20 seasons and I still think I can play", he told the website owned by ESPN.

The athlete will continue to live in San Antonio, Texas, he said, but will also spend time in France, where he owns and serves as president of ASVEL - a professional men's and women's basketball club. "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.

Parker walks away as the Spurs all-time leader in assists, and he is also top five in franchise history in games played, points, and steals.
