San Antonio Spurs Rumors
As the story goes, while Galvani waited in a bus station outside Rio’s Olympic Park following France’s victory against Venezuela, a group of teens grabbed his cellphone, and when the volunteer gave chase, one of the robbers revealed a knife. The following day, when the French national team’s trainer noticed Galvani was shook up, the Brazilian shared his story. The trainer in turn told Team France.
At first, the Brazilian declined, not wanting to distract from France’s quarterfinal matchup against Spain. But Parker insisted. Not only did the Spurs star provide Galvani with a new phone, he delivered a bag full of Olympic swag, including Beats By Dre headphones and Lacoste sunglasses. When Galvani joked he’d be robbed again, Parker arranged for a car and security to ensure he made it home safe. “I wept like a child,” Galvani told O Globo, ” I hugged him — I could see the person he is.”
