For the important recap on the point guard Tony Parker, it was already a month since he left the San Antonio Spurs to join the Charlotte Hornets and penned a farewell to his long time franchise especially to head coach Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan, and others within an almost 3,000 words of essay posted on The Players Tribune website. Here's some of the remarkable thoughts from Parker:

"I came up to Pop one day, and I told him my thoughts: It was time for Dejounte to take over full-time as our starting point guard, I didn't want it to be a dramatic thing, or this ego thing, or one of these big media things, but I just wanted to get it out in the open -- for the good of Dejounte's development, and for the good of the team. Pop agreed, and thanked me. And then I went and had the same conversation with Dejounte. He was grateful." Tony Parker wrote.
