Tony Parker News Archive
Wow! We're no basketball experts here, but we're pretty sure that's NOT how you shoot a free throw!!
Last night as the Chicago Bulls took on the San Antonio Spurs, Joakim Noah picked up a technical foul meaning Tony Parker got to step up to line for a free throw!
However, the 3-time NBA champ clearly missed out on the concept of a free throw literally being a free shot and the ball only made it a few feet after it left his hands!
Um, is there anything that's considered worse than an air ball?
Apparently one of the refs tried to stop Tony mid-shot, and he actually made the buckets when he was given another chance to follow it up!
However, that still doesn't change the fact that this is probably one of the worst free throws we've ever seen!
Ch-ch-check out the confusion …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
It's all about a photo… one that was taken years ago!
There's an old pic of Tony posing with French comedian Dieudonne M'bala M'bala, doing a "quenelle" gesture.
To some, the gesture is an inverted Nazi salute!!
So we can totes see why some people were pretty upset with him!!
Tony responded to all the criticism, saying:
Tony Parker is one lucky guy!
For eight months out of the year, he's one of the top point guards in the NBA! But in his off time, he gets to vacation in France with his beautiful fiancé Axelle Francine!
Last we saw, the two love birds were spending their afternoon soaking in some sun on a yacht, and the basketballer showed off his adventurous side as he practiced his diving skills!
This time around, they took things a bit easier as Tony and Axelle walked hand-in-hand and enjoyed a lovely stroll by the water in Saint Tropez!
It looks like the two are definitely enjoying their time off, and Tony better enjoy it while he can because before he knows it, it's going to be time to get back to work!

The San Antonia Spurs point guard has been getting plenty of R&R after getting engaged this offseason, and is there anything more relaxing than jumping off of a boat into a lake in France??
Ok, well there probably is. But it sure does look like fun!!
Tony and his fiancé Axelle Francine spent some time in Saint-Tropez while on vacation this weekend, and they decided to hit the water for some fun in the sun!
The couple spent the afternoon out on the lake on a yacht, and the basketballer showed off his adventurous side by jumping off of the gigantic boat!
For the sake of the Spurs, we sure hope he didn't hurt himself! LOLz!

By getting engaged!!
The sulking Spur was answering fan questions on Twitter when he was asked how he likes to unwind after a game, and he responded by saying:
Yet, here we are, almost a year later, and there is STILL all kinds of drama surrounding the incident, which left many innocent bystanders injured…including the subject of this particular story, Tony Parker!
As we've reported, the San Antonio Spurs player was there when the bottles began being thrown, and is suing the NYC club for $20 million because of a glass shard seriously damaging his cornea, all on the grounds that the owners knew of the singers' beef, and should not have allowed them in in the first place!
Of course, W.i.P. has since
