Tony Parker

During last month’s All-Star Weekend, Bill Simmons, conducted another excellent interview with San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker who is currently injured with a sprained ankle. They discussed a variety of topics including the 2001 NBA Draft when Parker said he was told that the Boston Celtics were going to draft him before they opted instead to go with Joseph Forte who is now plying his trade in the Iranian Basketball Super League. Apparently legendary Celtics coach Red Auerbach is to blame for that gaffe.

If you want to fast forward to the part about the Celtics go to the 9:00 minute mark.
