It wasn’t long ago that everyone outside of the city of New York thought that Knicks were screwed. They were terrible on the court. They were terrible off the court. And once LeBron spurned them for Miami, it looked like things weren’t going to get better for a while. Yeah, they added Amar’e Stoudamire, but everyone knows they need more. But all of a sudden, more seems to be on the horizon.
Chris Paul has been rumored to want to play there, Carmelo Anthony may want in, and now Tony Parker seems to want in too. Well, that’s according to Eva Longoria.
Tony Parker’s wife, actress Eva Longoria, was overheard last night saying the San Antonio point guard wants to come to the Big Apple.
The couple was at sold-out Red Bull Arena last night in Harrison, N.J., to watch their friend Thierry Henry and the Red Bulls lose 1-0 to the L.A. Galaxy.
Asked if Parker’s presence meant he was coming to New York, she responded, “No, we’re just here watching [Henry].”
Asked if her husband wanted to come to New York, she quickly flashed a smile, nodded her head and said, “Yes.”
Whether this is just a wife’s wishful thinking or Tony’s true feelings, this statement is pretty indicative of Parker’s situation with the Spurs. For one, everyone knows wives get what they want. And for two, seeing as though Parker is married to an actress, living in New York would be ideal. And besides, I’m willing to bet that Knicks fans wouldn’t mind their own “Big 3” of Tony Parker, Carmelo Anthony, and Amar’e Stoudamire.
