This statement, which was directed to migrants, spawned much controversy in France, and not only. It didn’t come out of nowhere though since Sarkozy hopes to be a presidential candidate for the 2017 elections. It’s not hard to understand why the San Antonio Spurs superstar reacted the way he did when hearing these words. “It made me laugh more than anything else. Well, I was born in Belgium from a Dutch mother and an American father. So I am the perfect example of the fact that French may come from anywhere,” he commented for the French RTL Radio.
The NBA star and European Basketball Champion Tony Parker played on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 on the Jungfraujoch. He was faced with a team of Swiss Basket players and demonstrated his speed and agility at 3454 meters above sea level. After the basketball game Tony Parker took time to answer the media’s questions. He said: “I’m always up for new challenges, so when Tissot, my long-term partner suggested I play a match at the Top of Europe I thought it was a great opportunity to do something exceptional. We don’t often get to play in such extreme conditions.” Over 100 journalists from Asia, Europe, Australia, America and Switzerland were there to witness this exceptional event. A very special guest also took part in the event, Tissot’s Swiss Moto2 ambassador Thomas Lüthi.
During the recent 5×5 game event that took place at the “Top of the World”Aletsch Glacier of the Bernese Alps, Tony Parker expressed his ambition that he wants his illustrious NBA career to go out with a bang: By winning his fifth champion’s ring. “It would be great to win the NBA title for my grand finale”, he said to Swiss website Lematin. “Winning titles has always been my motivation to continue. I love it, that’s what keeps me going. In San Antonio I was lucky to be in a team that can win the title every year. I think we still have opportunities to do it again this season.”
Parker has also big plans about Asvel Villeurbanne, the French club which owns and is president. “I’d love to play four or five years in the NBA to make it to 20 seasons. After that I have already prepared my new role as full time president of ASVEL. I want to develop its academies, new players. This is also an important part of being an athlete, to think about the future.”
