As the Spurs prepare to retire Tony Parker’s #9 jersey on Monday, Nov. 11 following a match-up with the Memphis Grizzlies, San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenburg has proclaimed Saturday, Nov. 9 “Tony Parker Day” in honor of the Spurs’ GOAT point guard.
I will proclaim Sat., Nov. 9, 2019 as "Tony Parker Day" in #satx during tomorrow's Council A-Session. The Spurs will retire Tony's #9 on Monday.— Mayor Ron Nirenberg (@Ron_Nirenberg) November 6, 2019
Merci, @tonyparker, for being such a pivotal part of the @spurs beautiful game for 17 seasons. We miss you on that court! #GoSpursGo pic.twitter.com/vVQjo0wu1b
Parker will also be available to meet in person Saturday from 3:30-5:00 PM at North Star Mall. He will be at Dillard’s as an ambassador for Tissot, the official watch of the NBA.
Just a reminder, Monday’s game has been moved back to 6:30 PM CT to accommodate Parker’s retirement ceremony. (Why couldn’t they do that for Manu Ginobili’s retirement ceremony last spring?) This will probably be the last jersey retirement the Spurs perform for quite a while, so don’t miss it!
