Tony Parker to Retire after 18 Seasons

After 18 seasons in the NBA, point guard Tony Parker has announced his retirement.

In an interview with The Undefeated, Parker said that after this season, he knew it was time to retire. Parker spent 17 seasons with the San Antonio Spurs before joining the Charlotte Hornets in the offseason.

During his prime, Parker was a huge part of the Spurs’ dynasty. He, along with Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, helped the organization win four NBA championships, and earned the Finals MVP Award in 2007.

Parker has career averages of 15.5 points and 5.6 assists per game, which led him to six All-Star selections and multiple All-NBA team selections.

While his stats dwindled later in his career, Parker’s impact with the Spurs can’t be understated. Spurs fans can likely look forward to seeing his #9 jersey retired in the near future.
