PBT Extra: Tony Parker is headed to Charlotte and it feels strange

After spending 17 seasons with the Spurs, point guard Tony Parker has signed a two-year, $10 million deal with the Hornets to back up Kemba Walker.

The idea of seeing Tony Parker in teal rather than silver and black is just strange.

But as one Spurs era comes to an end, strange things happen. For example, Tony Parker signing a two-year deal with the Charlotte Hornets. I discuss what it all means in this latest PBT Extra.

“It’s difficult to put into words how important Tony Parker has been to the Spurs franchise over the past two decades,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said in a statement. “From his first game in 2001 at age 19, TP has impressed and inspired us - day-after-day, game-after-game, season-after-season - with his passion, dedication and desire. We are grateful to Tony for 17 years of truly amazing memories. While the four championships, six All-Star appearances and four All-NBA selections highlight his resume, the biggest joy for me has been to have the pleasure of watching TP grow up before our eyes. All of us in the Spurs organization will miss having Tony in our program and wish him and his family the best as he continues his remarkable career in Charlotte.”

Classy. As always from the Spurs.
