Parker alleges he almost lost an eye—his whole freaking eye!—after a shard of glass from the bottle penetrated 99 percent of his left eye. The point guard, who kind of needs his vision for the good of his career, will now have to undergo surgery to remove the glass shard and may end up missing the Olympics.

From the Associated Press:

NBA star Tony Parker may miss the London Olympics after almost losing his eye in a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake's entourage.

Parker's cornea was scratched in the fight, and the San Antonio Spurs guard revealed he had to have an operation to remove a shard that had “penetrated 99 percent” of his left eye.

“I almost lost my eye,” Parker said in an interview posted on his website Sunday.

He did not join the rest of France's team Wednesday and will see a specialist in New York when he is cleared to take long-haul flights after July 5.

“I'm seeing a specialist in New York with the hope of being given the all clear to play in the Olympic Games,” Parker said. “Spurs are very worried.

“Anything can happen, including me being out of the Olympics. The decision doesn't belong to me anymore. It's in the hands of the doctor and San Antonio.”

This is the weirdest story ever.
