For as long as Tony Parker has been with the Spurs, Kobe Bryant has been a nemesis. In eight of Parker’s first nine seasons, the path to the NBA Finals went through either San Antonio or Los Angeles. The Spurs battled Bryant, and they feared him, and above all they respected him.
News that Lakers’ star is out for at least the next six months after rupturing an Achilles tendon Friday night hit Parker hard.
“Very sad,” Parker said after shootaround this morning on the UCLA campus. “Sad for the NBA, sad for everyone. I wanted to play against him tonight. It’s just sad.”
“He’ll be back,” Parker said. “For sure. He’ll definitely be back.”
