Tony Parker on nearly being a Celtic

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

There's been some here recently who've been upset with Simmons over his statement about Spurs possibly being unseated from their #1 seed position due to Parker's injury (which I think is a real possibility), but he's been one of those rare national sports journalists who've consistently said glowing things about the Spurs.

He recently sat down with Tony Parker for a chat for his podcast over at Grantland. Topics covered include, how Tony was nearly drafted by Boston, Tony's perennial underrated status, whether Spurs disappointing exit from the playoff in the past two seasons was just an unlucky fluke (something Simmons have said on ESPN before), Spurs unique chemistry, Spurs' very international roster (Tony makes the mistake of naming Brazil as a Spanish-speaking country. Simmons doesn't correct him), Olympics, among other things. Enjoy!
