San Antonio Spurs Legend Tony Parker Retires After 18 NBA Seasons

After 18 NBA seasons, San Antonio Spurs legend has decided to call it a career.

The decision has come one year after the Frenchman left the Spurs in free agency. Parker spent the final year of his career with the Charlotte Hornets, where he stepped in as the backup for All-Star Kemba Walker. Parker initially signed a two-year contract to join the Hornets after spending his first 17 years in Texas.

“A lot of different stuff ultimately led me to this decision,” Parker told The Undefeated. “But, at the end of the day, I was like, if I can’t be Tony Parker anymore and I can’t play for a championship, I don’t want to play basketball anymore.”

The 37-year old suited up in 56 games this past season, averaging an admirable 9.5 points off the bench.

“I wanted to play 20 seasons. and I still think I can play,” Parker told Spears. “I had a good season with the Hornets, and I was healthy. But at the same time, now I don’t see any reason to play 20 seasons.”

A six-time NBA All-Star and sure-fire Hall of  Famer, Parker is an international legend in France as well as a four-time NBA champion. He was named the Finals MVP away in 2007.

Parker has averaged 15.5 points and 5.6 assists in his 18 NBA seasons.
