Tony Parker

Winning NBA Finals

Could Cost Him $20 Mil

Tony Parker
and his fellow San Antonio Spurs are poised to snatch the NBA championship title from the Miami Heat ... but a victory could cost Tony a fortune.

As you know ... the Spurs are up 1-zip in the finals, and the odds are they could win the whole shebang, because let's face it ... the Heat players are a little haggard.

Tony is in the middle of a $20 million lawsuit over the blowout fight between Drake and Chris Brown at W.i.P. Nightclub in NYC.  Parker says he suffered lacerations to his cornea when a glass shard from a bottle struck him in the eye. 

When Parker filed the suit, he was halfway through a $50 million contract with the Spurs ... and his future seemed uncertain given the eye injury.

Parker is suing the club, claiming it was negligent in not preventing the brewing brawl.

Now here's the problem ... Tony played a fantastic season this year.  He could have won MVP if he hadn't sprained his ankle ... and if LeBron James had suddenly retired. 

So the $20 million damage claim kind of goes out the window, especially if Tony gets a ring.

Here's the good news -- In a year, he'll sign a new deal, and $20 mil may look like chump change.

Stick to gossip, as*es, racks and nasty mitts because not one person in that building knows anything about sports. Including the single digit IQ surfer dude, the two African American fellows that we all know can't play sports. Perhaps get the big dude to enter the Hot Dog eating contest.

NBA Basketball has turned into a game played by genetic freaks where someone who is 6'1" is considered to be a midget.. I'd rather watch basketball at the collegiate level..

He was still injured. Even if its not $20 million, he should still get something. Maybe he'll be a good guy and donate it to a worthy charity, since we know he doesn't need it.

Some accidents don't affect you til years down the road. It is silly to say if he wins now he won't suffer in wo or 10 years...
