Tony Parker Transformed Mentally By Eye Injury
Tony Parker was injured as a bystander in a nightclub brawl, receiving a shard of glass that came "two millimeters" away from causing him to lose his eye.
“Life can change pretty fast,” he said.
The incident has made Parker more cautious.
“It’s so funny, because I just had my best year in the NBA and in one night it can change,” said Parker, who will wear protective glasses during the Olympics. “It just puts life in perspective and you think, ‘OK, next time I have to be careful,’ but at the same time you can’t stop living because then you don’t even cross the street.
“You don’t want to dramatize too much, but it still puts it all in perspective.”
