The French basketball federation announced today the 17-players preselection of the team for the upcoming Olympic qualifying tournament. As expected, many players from the NBA are missing, but Tony Parker, Boris Diawy and Nicolas Batum are included, even if the last two have a big question mark near their name. If they manage to get a new deal in time in the NBA and sign it, then they may be able to play in Manila’s tournament which starts on the 5th of July.
Storyline: Olympic Games

Parker has released a French hip-hop album, opened a nightclub, launched a clothing line and co-directed an autobiographical documentary, among other things. His next venture: becoming a featured figure in an ongoing web series produced by Sina Sports, China’s leading digital sports media platform. Parker joins a cast that includes Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, former NBA All-Star and current Detroit Pistons assistant coach Tim Hardaway and Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey. They will each have their own web channel.
It was a performance that fit perfectly with the recipe he offered before the game for winning playoff games on the road. “On the road you have to execute even more and take care of the ball and control the boards, all the little stuff,” Parker said. “That can create a lot of bad stuff if you can’t control the boards or lose them (the Thunder) in transition and give up a fast break and let the crowd go crazy. You try to keep the crowd not too loud.”
