The Spurs Retire Tony Parker’s Jersey


The Spurs have retired Tony Parker’s jersey. The 17 season veteran of the Spurs and sure-fire Hall of Famer was joined by his family and several Spurs teammates as his number 9  jersey was raised in AT&T Center on Monday night. Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan, who have also had their jerseys retired, gave speeches to commemorate their teammate.

 

Along with Coach Popovich (who we know is always good for a few laughs)…
