He said the Games have also given him a chance to meet the newest member of the Jazz — Boris Diaw, the former Spurs veteran who plays for France. “I’ve talked to Boris in the (athlete’s) village,” he said. “He’s a really nice guy. (Leandro) Barbosa played with him in Phoenix, and he say only good things about him. I think we have a great team, some nice guys joined our team, and we expect (to) do better (this) season.”

Diaw set quite the tone for this excursion back in December, when he wrote a letter to Parker on a French web site that set the stage for what is likely their last hoops adventure. He told old stories about their time together, shared his appreciation for all Parker had done. “Destins Croises,” the headline read. Translated, it means “Shared Destinies.” “Tony is like a brother to me,” wrote Diaw, who didn’t play with Parker in the NBA until joining the Spurs in 2011 and won a championship with him in 2014. “We’ve now got the Olympic Games in Rio coming, a very special event where we have the chance to round off our respective careers on a high.”

But if France plays like it did against Australia, which was more physical and creative offensively, it will leave Rio without a medal. “It’s supposed to be the main goal,” France coach Vincent Collet said of earning a medal. “Every time we talk about it with Boris, Tony and even the younger players — Nando (De Colo), Nicolas — they know how important it should be to get a medal. “That’s why it’s surprising what we did today. But I promise we will be much better the next game.”
