This is obviously good news. It seems that Parker's eye is good to go. Obviously the Spurs were all over this and even Pop gave his blessing, assuming the story is accurate. Let's hope that there are no lingering effects of the cut on Tony's eye and he can play well at the Olympics.

In other news the French team is looking to get Hasheem Thabeet to sign an offer sheet which the Knicks will probably match.
